The Capitals did the right thing, and made Chris Clark their captain. The announcement came today. It’s the right person to take the reins of this team. He has the experience, and is a gritting two way player that is a hard worker on the ice.
Clark was the best choice for this team. Alex Ovechkin realized he wasn’t ready to be that person. Clark is the heart of what this team is supposed to be, tough and hard working. And as a fan, I couldn’t be happier for him and for this team.
Some talk going around is where everyone is going to be. Talk of maybe putting a Russian line together with Ovechkin, Dainius Zubrus and Alexander Semin. Most likely though Richard Zednik and Semin may be a solid number two line and the Russian trio may make an interesting power-play option.
Teams may fear the one and two line the Capitals are presenting. Possible line match ups will be much clearer tomorrow when the press gets a look in at the Caps. And on Friday for the Caps open practice to the public.
