If you could only have one on the team which one would you chose - Datsyuk or Zetterberg?

Exactly.

If we can only keep one of the two, then I would advise Holland to do this to Zetterberg:

Zetterberg
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

I'd take Datsuyk. He's got more talent and I have hope he won't turn into a Fedorov crying diva.

Z. His playmaking ability is on par with Datsyuk's. He's not as skilled with the puck, but he's still more skilled than about 80 percent of the rest. He's got the right attitude and will develop into a excellent two-way player in time.

Datsyuk is better at handling the puck. Zetterberg is a good or better at everything else.

There is no debate.

Zetterberg (15G, 28A = 43 Pts)
Datsyuk (30G, 38A = 68 PTs.)

Zetter had about 10 games less, so let's give him at least 2 more Goals and 6 more Assists in that period (which is generous).

While I would love to keep both and both are different players I would put my money on Datsyuk if I had to make a choice to retain one of them.

Of course there is debate, there is always debate. laugh.gif

This is really, really, really, really tough. Have I said how tough this was?

After a loooonnnnng deliberation and lots of contemplating. I choose:

Zetterberg, better all around player and team player, but I still want both.

Datsyuk by a nose -- he has a couple 100 point seasons ahead of him and is deadly on breakaways (we have the shootout factor going). Tough question though. If it is just this season I'd choose Zata he'd benefit from a full season here more than Dats -- thats just this season.

They are not that far apart and Datsyuk surely hasn't peaked yet either.

I honestly cannot make a choice. I can't think about this now!!! biggrin.gif

I won't repeat everything I posted elsewhere here, but what I like the most about both of them is having them play together. Don't you think these two have given us some glimpses of the most exciting hockey around?

If I could have my wish it would be to see both #13 and #40 retired together and hanging from the rafters at Yzerman Arena in 2030.

Fedorov owns, but I'd agree with you on Datsyuk over Zetterburg
