So he got the most votes on "who is the best swede in the NHL" by his team mates and countrymen in Tre Kronor.

Unique Poll: Who is the best swede in the NHL

Henrik Zetterberg, 8
Nicklas Bäckström, 4
Henrik Sedin, 4
Nicklas Lidström, 3
Henrik Lundqvist, 2
Daniel Sedin, 1

I'd say Bäckström is better already and will be much better, as he's still young.

I agree, at least offensively. And right now I'd argue that Alfredsson's better too, and probably the Sedins. But Z does an amazing job on the backcheck and PK, no doubt about that. Just get scoring!!

Agreed, I think Backstrom has just about been the MVP of this tournament thus far. Gun. thumbup.gif

Bäckström is in my opinion the best Swede in the NHL right now and he's still growing as a player. He'll be an elite playmaker for a long long time and pairing him up with Ovie is MONEY!

Lidström, Alfredsson, Zetterberg, Lundqvist, Bäckström. I'd say it's a tie between these guys.

Couple things: Zetterberg is not the best Swede on the Red Wings this year, and Lidstrom is not only the best Swede on the team, he's the best in the league. And furthermore, Nicklas Lidström is still the best player of any nationality playing hockey today.

And yeah, I honestly, truly believe that. If I had to do a fantasy draft for the upcoming playoffs, Nick would be my #1 choice 998 times out 1000 (I'd pick 2 other guys once each just for s***s and giggles tongue.gif)

Still, I'd take Lidstrom or Z in the playoffs over anyone else on that list.

Kind of like his quote on his draft year.

"I didn't know they were doing the draft in alphabetical order."

But how could Zetterberg get the majority of votes? He's my favorite player and all but there's no way he's the best Swede in the NHL. Is Zetterberg Sweden's version of... of... of... Oh man I don't want to say his name... of... Crrrr... Crrrrrrr... Crrrrrro... Crrrrrrrooozzz... bee? I don't want to misdirect the thread but I feel it's a genuine question for the topic at hand. Is Z the image of what Sweden wants to present as their best even though if it were based on overall ability alone he's not really even close?

Just the 07-08 stanley cup playoffs was a huge deal for all swedes and everyone on team sweden were stunned by his performance, rightfully so... so he still is the top guy because of that season and particullary that playoffs... might change if bckstrm carries caps to the finals and win the conn smythe etc...

He is not the fastest or most skilled guy, but he is COOL and RESPECTED and works harder than anyone else. He brings it when it matters the most and people look up to him.
Hank is the best, and don't you dare compare him to the C-word.

um no. Ovy?

Zetterberg/Franzen I could see getting the 1st pick though, although ovy should still be the 1st pick.



also lol at the Detroit comment and lol at henrik voting for this brother.

Edited by Datsyuk2Zetterberg, 23 February 2010 - 11:11 AM.

Lost: Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. If found please contact Mike Babcock.

As a Swede I can honestly say I don't have any problem what so ever if Zetterberg is presented as our best player. Why have you?

And comparing him to the Crosby situation is a bit silly considering a lot of that is caused by the overwhelming media exposure he gets. You can't even remotely compare that with the media exposure Zetterberg gets in Sweden (or any other country I suppose).

AO would definitely be either my 999th or 1000th 1st overall pick. I'm saying just for one playoff run, not to build a franchise around starting today.
