There's a difference between being bad and being "Datsyuk bad". Zetterberg has had maybe three decent games in the last twenty-two and you wanna argue the fact that he's been invisible? Stop riding him and take an unbiased look at how things are. And to call my post a "stupid and ignorant suggestion" because we don't see eye-to-eye is probably a testament to how low your quality of life is. And for future reference, what I posted wasn't a "suggestion" it was an opinion. And if you're comfortable with paying six million a year for a player who's on pace for forty-eight points then I'm sure there's a Montreal forum you should be on: let a lone the captain of the Wings.


I agree with you that Datsyuk is the better player, but this suggestion/opinion/argument is stupidish? ignorantish? lol i honestly laughed when finishing your post.

Anybody who thinks that Zetterberg has been invisible at all this year doesnt watch the wings or hockey for that matter.

I am beyond comfortable paying Z 6mill. I would pay 8 mill + for him on the open market.

You, I, and everyone else here knows he will score well above 48 pts this season, and so will datsyuk. So forget your on-pace garbage lol it means nothing.

Forget Montreal, theres a Columbus/NYI forum screaming your name.

How did I miss this thread!

I think it's safe to assume we all know I wouldn't mind seeing Dats get the "C". I don't think he will but anyone who would complain about it are crazy. I do however think Z will still get it, Im guessing thats what Pavel wants as well so and you should too.

A slight challenge for Pav getting the "C" is the language barrier. Captains need to be able to interact and have discussions with the officiating crew--in English. As Rule 6 states, the team captain alone is the only one to hold this discussion privilege with the refs. I don't know if Pav's English is good enough to be effective with this role.

Agreed. Pavs is hilarious, in part due to how his humor comes across in his broken english. But the guy makes Homer look fluent.

As others have mentioned, the most talented guy on the team doesn't necessarily have to be the one wearing the C.

Pasha is a lot smarter than he lets on...I think he tries to buffalo people into thinking he doesn't speak English all that well because he's really a very shy person. He's actually a very brainy fellow. Once you get to know him, you find out that he's a lot smarter than he shows to everyone.

As far as him being captain, I see no reason why he couldn't be. Getting mad, I've seen his temper before...I remember a game in St. Louis where he got so mad he walked in the locker room and slammed his stick into the rack. There was an anger in his eyes I'd never seen before...he was really ticked. I think if the situation called for it, he could summon the anger forces and let loose. I wouldn't put it past him.

Z has been groomed for years now to take over; Lids is going to retire and I think he should while he is on the top of his game. His oldest son is already staying with family in Sweden because he does not want his kids in American schools. He needs to concentrate on his family now; he has given us 20 stellar years.

Pav is God, but he is too shy and too self-effacing to be a captain in the media spotlight.

Wouldn't mind Kronner; he has such grit and is just as pretty as Z (oh, stepped in it there...)

I don't think anyone is questioning Pavel's intelligence. Just his fluency in English.


EDIT: And I heard Z has 7 points in his last 6 games. Hopefully he's getting on track the way Datsyuk has.

I love Pavel.

But do you really expect this man to talk to the media/referees on a regular basis? :hehe:

I see what you did there!

Seriously, though... Dats, Z, either way, I'm good with it.

Actually she does. She has supported Dats and many other Red Wings at the Red Wings Training camp for 10+ years. He says hello when he sees her to note how supportive she and her family have been to him.

<br />Are you F'n joking? Do you watch the games? <br />He's had a slow start and Z had a BRUTAL giveaway two games ago...but EVERY SINGLE PLAYER ON THE ROSTER gives it away once in a while. How can you honestly write that he is invisible every game- six points in the last 4 games doesnt really seem like he isn't relevent, especially when you fail to mention that Datsyuk went through a very similar drought at the begining of the season. I love how posters will make these ridiculous statements about players of Zetterbergs caliber.<br />You may not think he should be the next Captian of this team so just say that- dont make stupid and ignorant suggestions that he's not visable or relevant. He's worth his paycheque...every penny.<br />

WOW!
Ok, first off, I have a very happy, well rounded life bud...there was nothing personal in my post so grow up- there is absolutely no need to say I must have a low quality of life because I don't see eye to eye with you. You wrote that Zetterberg was irrelevent and invisible and I agrued that you CANNOT be invisible if you scored six points in the last 4 games.

This is the definition of invisible:
n·vis·i·ble
   [in-viz-uh-buhl]

adjective
1.
not visible; not perceptible by the eye: invisible fluid.

2.
withdrawn from or out of sight; hidden: an invisible seam.



If you can find something that definition that says anything about Zetterbergs game, well...I don't think you can because (once again, pushing the echo putton) He ISN'T INVISIBLE. He is not going to score 48 points this year..both you and I know that....and I don't give a shat what he is on pace for. He had a very slow start but he has been very strong the last 4-5 games and seem to have found his offensive game. Lastly, you state that he has had three decent games this year? Huh. I think you should perhaps look up this word:

ex·ag·ger·ate (g-zj-rt)
v. ex·ag·ger·at·ed, ex·ag·ger·at·ing, ex·ag·ger·ates
v.tr.
1. To represent as greater than is actually the case; overstate: exaggerate the size of the enemy force; exaggerated his own role in the episode.
2. To enlarge or increase to an abnormal degree: thick lenses that exaggerated the size of her eyes.
v.intr.
To make overstatements.

Yes, we have become friends over the years. He's really a nice guy...and he could be captain material. Maybe his English isn't perfect, but sometimes the best captain leads by example instead of words, and I think he would do that very well.
