Victor Hedman has opened up about former captain Steven Stamkos' departure in free agency and the possibility of becoming captain.

Steven Stamkos' departure from the Tampa Bay Lightning to the Nashville Predators on July 1 sent shockwaves through the NHL, leaving many in disbelief and upset.
Victor Hedman, a longtime defenseman for the Lightning, recently shared his thoughts on Stamkos' exit, praising him as a "perfect captain" in an interview with Chris Johnston of TSN.

Despite Hedman's positive attitude, it's possible that management's decisions may have built some resentment among players. Nevertheless, Hedman's extension to stay with the Lightning demonstrates his dedication to the team, and his leadership may be crucial in navigating this transition.
