The Free Press reported that Stuart and Jokinen are the A's in a way that suggested that Enstrom and Byfuglien had been stripped of their duty. Did we not rotate our A's home and away last season? Are we not doing that again?
Read that tidbit today in the Winnipeg Free Press. It didn't mention if Enstrom and Byfuglien were keeping/wearing 'A's on the road. I hope they are. The small piece that touched on this said the team did it quietly. I don't quite understand why they'd have to be so secretive about their team Captains.
Guess we'll see tomorrow on the road if Enstrom and Byfuglien have their 'A's. I really hope they do. Would be pretty damn odd to give Jokinen, a new guy, an 'A' and strip our other core guys of theirs.
This is a good decision. He will be a great leader and this will put less on Buff's plate. He made a good impression by staying in great shape during the lockout. He is flying out there compared to some guys who skated at the MTS Iceplex, heck, he's even skated better than Wheeler right now. He will be the guy to bring Kane, Burmi and maybe Scheif along IMO.
