Why is it difficult for Russia with Canada? Because the Klenovs have 15 times as many captains in the NHL as we do.
The day before yesterday, the club with the most championships in the NHL named the 31st captain in more than a century of Montreal history. The spot became vacant after the Canadiens traded a seriously injured Shea Weber to Las Vegas for Yevgeny Dadonov so the Knights could save their increased salary.
There was a stir. The Canadiens’ new leader, Nick Suzuki, is not only a fifth-generation descendant of the samurai and the second full-time Asian captain in the entire NHL, after Paul Kariya, who ruled Anaheim from 1996 to 2003. 23 years old, he became. The youngest captain in Montreal history!

“It happens that you talk to a 23-year-old and he acts like an 18-year-old, but Nick is the opposite,” Canadiens vice-president Jeff Gorton explained of the unexpected choice. – This is a very balanced person. When I talk to him, I feel like he is 30 years old. That he has been in the league for a long time. Although this is far from the truth. I think Nick is well suited for a leadership role in the state we are in and the state we are aiming for.
We add that the striker’s contract on October 12 last year should have been extended for the maximum allowed eight years at $63 million in Suzuki’s fortunes. With a seasonal salary of 7,875 million, the Japanese Canadian became the highest paid of the famous team, whose average age has dropped to 26.5 years. The first rich man among NHL goaltenders, Corey Price, 10.5 million, does not count here: his addiction is no longer compatible with great hockey.
Here’s a quick question for you: Can you guess how many Canadian captains the 32 NHL franchises have today?
Fifteen! Despite the fact that six clubs have not made a decision and will not do so in the near future.
Three five full of heroes! Who, by definition, don’t know how to play half. Who, like the true communists of Pavka Korchagin’s time, are always the first to rise from the trenches and lead everyone with them by personal example. They never grumble or complain, but day after day, game after game, shift after shift, they accomplish their lofty goals despite any blisters or mood swings.

I wrote this and saw Little Sid in front of me. No wonder Crosby is now the NHL’s big boss in this responsible business: He’s been wearing the C-Patch in Pittsburgh since May 31, 2007! Hello KHL! Do you have an answer? Of course not! In 2007, there was no such league in Russia. And it is not customary for us to sit in one place for a long time. No one would dream of an 8 year contract! Tea, not from the Soviet era, when the stars of CSKA and Spartak, Dynamo and Krylia, SKA and Khimik, Tractor and Avtomobilist spent their entire careers in their original team …
But is our Alex any different? Have you ever seen a dynamo player without spirit, at full speed, taking care of himself? Apathetic/depressed OV is actually a classic oxymoron.

The only problem is that we only have one of those Ovechkins in the entire NHL. Even little Switzerland has more of them and the Maple Guard have 15 men in that encounter! And only four: McDavid, Suzuki, Tavares, Horvath lead national teams.
However, two Americans, Tkachuk and Wheeler, also leaked to their neighbors in Ottawa and Winnipeg.
