Nicklas Lidstrom wears a "C" on his chest in Detroit, having taking the reins from a man known in "Hockeytown" as "The Captain."
When Steve Yzerman retired in 2006, it was the end of a 20-year stint as captain of the Red Wings.
Lidstrom's potential retirement is a question every offseason. When he leaves, someone will have to take the role from two living legends.
Other teams do not have as imminent of a captaincy switch, but have men waiting to take over.
