This just in, Stevie gives Canada the Order of Yzerman. Country bows and feels unworthy.

If he stays healthy it can happen.

I'm a lover, not a fighter. But I'm also a fighter, so don't get any idea's.

"For my game, I don't need to score the goal," Konstantinov once explained. "I need someone to start thinking about me and forgetting about scoring goals."

If he hits 50 goals, no way it comes any earlier than March. He should be signed by then. And who knows. If a 50 goal scorer whos just come off a Conn Smythe winning year can sign for say, 7.5M, then it might have a POSITIVE effect on the market.

I'd put my money on Zetterberg simply because Hossa has to contend with a much more talented group on the PP. Lidstrom is gonna score more PP goals than Kronwall, Raffi is gonna score more PP goals than Sammy, and Datsyuk is going to score more PP goals than Hudler while Hossa has the better net-front presence to contend with that can steal a goal from his column by an inch or two. Zetterbergs only real threat to stealing his Gs is Franzen, and with the way Hudler and Hank have been connecting on the PP, Zetterberg is still in the better position.
And I say this because I think its Hank being the big dog on the 2nd line that has made all the difference. Hes on pace for 25 PP goals (which would also be a Red Wing record if Im not mistaken).
Ultimately, however, it comes down to injuries, injuries, injuries with Hank.

that being said, it also depends on who else is on the line, be it hudler, flipper or sammy. each plays a different game which will affect z's game to some degree. interestingly, counter to what i might expect, sammy has 3 goals to z's 5 assists, and 11 assists to z's 10 goals. huds seems to be more of a set up guy. i kinda don't think z will get fifty goals, but if he stays healthy i do expect him to break a hundred points.

There is no 2nd line in Detroit. Just 2 first lines. Face it, our 2nd line could be 1st line on any other team.
In fact, our third line may be better than some 1st lines of other teams.

I would agree that he *should* be signed by then, but Kenny and Z could just as well have a gentlemen's agreement in place to see how their FA period shakes out. I absolutely believe Z will be with the Wings long-term, but that could delay things and for the better (or worse I suppose).
FTR, I don't see Z signing any later than January.
That would be a wonderful thing to see, but I doubt it translates to many (if any) other franchises out there. No other franchise in any professional American sport has what the Red Wings do in that regard. However it would be a great thing for sports in general going forward.
