In a text received from the Buffalo Sabres they have named the newly aquired d-man as their newest captain. Also releaed was the news that Pominville, Hecht, Spacek & Numminen will all be named assistant captains. Probally they will be rotated. Since i believe that the league only allows 3 players to wear letters.
So Sabre fans what do you think? Me myself am relieved and suprised all at once. I thought for sure that Pominville would be named captain of this team. But Rivet hass been a leader where ever he has been. And hopefully he can break the curse of the lone Captain of a Sabres team. Every Captain since Perreault has been traded. In fact only 2 Buffalo Captains have not been traded. Perreault & Floyd Smith (Became coach)
