From a recent interview with a Swedish newspaper (Linky). Obviously not a guarantee that he'll sign but it's still nice to know that he considers Detroit to be his first choice and will probably give us a discount...

Who wouldn't love to hear their future franchise player say something like that? Very cool.

As someone's sig here fittingly says: Z follows Y. It would be great to see him retire with the team that drafted him, a rather rare phenomenon these days. But that's what the Wings are all about, loyalty and longevity.

We can't begin to negotiate with Z, until next year, right?... I think a 7 year contract would be good.... He'll avoid Dats by a couple of years in expiration. I think 2, 7 year deals at about 47 Million would be good.

Hank is the man!!

I was just thinking about this a couple days ago. That before he becomes a UFA we need to sign him for around 7-8 years.

For him to say that about the Wings is just amazing. Shows how much he loves it here. We love you, Hank!

*waits for Rabia to read this* lol

Looks as though English is not an option on the site. thumbdown.gif Maybe one of our Swedes can translate it and post it in English? tongue.gif

There really isn't anything interesting in the article other than Zetts saying, "If Detroit wants to, I'll sign a contract for the rest of my career."

Short recap, though:

- He's one of the best players, but still one of the most underpaid.
- He can't complain about his current salary.
- Girlfriend Emma Andersson (a Swedish TV celebrity) will be moving to Birmingham this fall to live in Hank's 5000 square feet house.

That's me.

And that is why I did that. I would serriously give him a contract for life along the lines of Pavel's.

Just do it now so I don't have to worry about it.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.
