    Zetterberg & Fedorov VS Yzerman and Datsyuk

    I always pick Z over Datsyuk if it’s playoffs and Datsyuk over Zetterberg if it’s regular season. Zetterberg could elevate his game in the playoffs like no one else. He was a beast. And it’s no coincidence he was Babcock’s go-to guy to shutdown opposing teams best player. Young Yzerman over Fedorov any day. So Zetterberg / Yzerman if it’s a game 7

    Yzerman vs Fedorov. Which one was better?

    Don Zetterberg will make sure his Russian BFF Datsyuk gets his # retired with legacy intact. 40 and 13 next to each other on the rafters is only fitting. The two were probably the best dynamic duo in recent history. Not to mention their on ice chemistry was second to none. Maybe even almost as good as the Sedin twins.

    I mean he’s an alright coach. Not horrendous but I doubt he gets us even close to the cup. I think Babcock was way better and Blashill is a downgrade. But I also think Babcock ran his course here. I think of Blashill as a transition guy like Dave Lewis. I have a feeling we will get a new coach in a couple of years.

    The whole play style of "going all out every shift" isn't as easy as it sounds. Some players just have greater will power. The Yzermans, the Zetterbergs, Martin St Louis is another one that comes to mind. Lebron James

    I would assume Zetterberg will likely be the guy who gets the biggest say in who the next captain would be. I bet he votes Kronwall, not because he dislikes Larkin, but because he seems the type that wants every young guy to grow into their roles further.

    If he is going on LTIR; really there shouldn't be a someone else as a captain. LTIR doesn't always mean the players is done forever and because of that he really shouldn't be losing the captaincy till the contract is up seeing as how he's would still be on the roster. If he retires (he won't). It would and should be Kronwall; just like Kronwall replaced Z in the Olympics as Captain. Larkin should get it after that eventually. Abdelkader is basically like Kris Draper. He's just the lifelong "A" that will never be good enough or come close to being a "C".

    Kronwall will probably be captain.

    I like Mantha the way he's being used. At this rate he can be a 30 goal scorer. He's good at using his stick in the lane in front of net. It's also helped him become a bit more aggressive and fight battles that he was otherwise avoiding at times. When Ras comes in, Mantha's usage may change but who knows; it seems like he's comfortable in his current usage. I also think that Blashil knew Mantha well enough to know what would work for him in the NHL level. Maybe that's why he's put Mantha into a role he has. Maybe it's transition period until he got better used to how NHL defenders work. Often times these so called snipers in juniors come into the big leagues and all of a sudden their sniping isn't as good anymore (Pulkinnen). A slow transition into more of a traditional "Winger role" could be nice this season but if that fails at least he's learned a role he can fall back into.

    I’m not a fan of the “well Yzerman was always behind Mario and Gretzky” argument. That’s true but Fedorov would be behind both of them as well. If Fedorov played in the mid 80s like Yzerman, I doubt he would be able to outperform Mario and Gretzky. And if Yzerman’s prime was in 94 like Fedorov’s was; I’m willing to bet he would give Fedorov a run for his money. Not to mention their PPG was very similar in that very season; unfortunately Yzerman player only 58 of the games. 3 shorties of Yzerman that season; where’s Feds had 4 in 82 games (also won a Selke ). My vote goes to Yzerman for being the overall better player. But purely skills wise, I give the edge to Fedorov.

    Zetterberg's status in 2 years.

    He looked great in the winter alumni games. So did Fedorov.

    Shanahan, Yzerman, Feds, Hull. Wings never saw those types of shots again. Even the 08 cup team as good as it was, didn’t have those types of shooters. Zetterberg had an amazing backhand shot tho, Datsyuk had a nifty wrister.

    Yzerman vs Fedorov. Which one was better?

    I actually don’t remember who had the better shot. I want to say Fedorov had the better wrister and Yzerman had the better slap shot.
