The Buffalo Sabres announced that Toni Lydman will be the captain for the month of November. Remember the Sabres will be rotating the captaincy monthly for this season. The choice of Toni Lydman is interesting because he has appeared to struggle in the early part of this season. In the Carolina game last week he was on the ice for five of the six goals, including four at even strength, and appeared to be watching as three of them went in. Unlike Jochen Hecht, Lydman was chosen by the coaching staff. Brian Campbell and Jochen Hecht will be the assistants.
It will be interesting to note whether or not we see a difference in his play. In all fairness he appeared to play better against Florida and Tampa Bay over the weekend.
