Obviously, the captaincy of Finland’s national hockey team is a big deal to brothers Mikko and Saku Koivu of the NHL’s Minnesota Wild and Anaheim Ducks, respectively.
A headline in Thursday’s Minneapolis Star Tribune shows just how serious the brothers are about the position.
We kid because we care (and because it’s funny). Plug is a much shorter word than endorse, especially when you have one deck and four columns for Wild hockey notes.
FWIW — Canucks’ haters accuse the Sedins of the same behavior every night, We assume Henrik Zetterberg is the odds-on favorite for the ‘C’ on the Swedish team.
