Dowell gets the "C" in Rockford

Jake Dowell, who had been serving as alternate captain, was named captain of the Rockford Icehogs yesterday. I have mixed feelings on this. It's really nice that the coaching staff and the team recognize his leadership abilities, but at the same time it also seems to be an indicator that they're not expecting him to go anywhere this season. I know, I know, Chicago has a ton of depth and they can't even keep Skille up on a permanent basis, but you know what I mean, right?
