It's just one guy fighting that battle. Apparently forcing your way off of Atlanta is an honorable thing to do and doing it Jersey is sacrilege.

That was frickin' hilarious the way Zach looked down at his sweater and realized it had an "A" on it.

Btw, seems to be a special Roundtable discussion of the Wild on FSN at 8pm tonight. They probably rounded up some talking heads like Russo, et al after the press conference and taped it on the spot.

Actually, I think it includes Parise, Suter, Leipold, Fletcher and Yeo. Hosted by LaPanta.

I see ZP only wearing that A for one year. The C is going to him next year.

Is there any way to be able to watch the press conference they had today? I was at a meeting for work and had to miss it.

Never mind I found it myself.

There's a (long) thread on the main board about the Wild's alternate captains?

Moving in the right direction if I don't say so myself.

Lets not get ahead of ourselves, sure if he wins the team over sure, but I can't see that going pretty. If Parise and everyone is happy & the team is playing to expectations DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING, if we get two alpha dogs too big for one locker room situation trade needs to happen asap.

Btw. I was surprised that Suter seemed to handle the media abit better, even though Zach cracked that Koivu joke, or I was just surprised how relaxed Suter seemed even after all the low media pressure preferences.

and FSN seems to have it cut up on their website. Probably WildTV does too, but I haven't checked.

For some reason I felt like Suter had a very Finnish-ish accent.

I don't think Mikko actually wants it, as he recognizes that talking to the press when he's really mad after a loss isn't his strong suit. Whether his pride will let him just say "Look, let Zach do it; he's got the skillset for the press part of the job" is a different question.

Of course, if they start losing less often, it becomes less of a problem too.

I reckon captain's main task is to lead the team. Why couldn't a guy wearing an A or even freaking Matt Kassian answer the media why the Wild couldn't score that late period goal. It's all the same jargon anyway.

E: If the green jerseys worn are worth drawing any conclusions from, it's that nothing has changed on that front.

I agree I don't think Mikko wants the job. Zach needs to show to the team he is the true leader. He will do that over this year IMO. He's proven in NJ he can handle the press that is much more viscous then what you get in Minnesota.

Not sure Heatley and Cullen are going to like it.

That said, maybe Yeo has Mikko as the C, and then the A's rotate between Parise, Suter, Heatley and Cullen. That's a good vet core to build a team around.

I PROMISE you that Chuck n co. talked to Heater and Cullen beforehand.

I'm pretty sure everyone knew beforehand. Parise was probably just looking for laughs.

Karkat is taking a vacation and letting some new additions take over for a bit.

Just because those jerseys are so damned sexy.

It's mostly one ******** devils fan telling us how he thinks Minnesota is never gonna go anywhere and how he thinks Parise just committed career suicide.

It's an entertaining read to say the least.

People are fooling themselves if they think Parise is going to take the C away from Koivu....and you better believe Mikko wants it!

that's idiotic--the notion of pulling the C away from Koivu. I know there are already halfwits emailing in the suggestion however. can't wait for the season to start so people just ***** about the giveaways.

I can see us doing what LA did. Last year in the playoffs (not the playoffs where they won the cup) they wore their black and grey jerseys instead of black and purple. Next thing you know, the next season they went with black and grey as their primary home jersey.

I'm totally fine with going with green for home jerseys but we'd for sure need to get a new away jersey. I'm sick of having 3 different designs for jerseys.

I hate our road whites....I'd love to see them go with the inverse of our alt green sweater for the road; mostly wheat with green lettering.

If you watch the individual interviews from after the press conference (LaPanta + Greenlay ) I thought Parise did a much better interview. Suter seemed kinda out of it; but he did say himself that it hasn't all sunk in yet.

The mock up that was done similar to those Aeros jerseys were amazing. Hopefully something along the lines of that.
