Z: I want to spend my career in Detroit

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...

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

She'll be here soon enough.

Or maybe she's stalking Hank in Sweden, who knows. :P

Uh is there a way it can be viewed in English? Or do I have to learn Swedish in order to read it?

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

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.

That's great to hear. Without question, Zetterberg is my favorite player on the Wings right now. I hope he does stay here his entire career.
