Sometimes I forget that when I write things for SBNation Atlanta, they don’t magically appear here. Anyway, Andrew Ladd has been named Thrashers captain, and Tobias Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien are the Alternate Captains for this season. Bully for them!
Frankly, I’ve been quietly wondering why Toby hasn’t been an A for about the past season, and I always assumed it was because he was so quiet – God knows that his play on the ice has always been nothing short of outstanding. I actually really like that we only have two alternate captains this season. A team like Atlanta who seems to need just a few people to shove them in the right direction probably doesn’t need 500 captains running around in the locker room.
