If you were given a couple hundred to bet on 1 Wing to score a goal, who would it be?

if datsyuk were more selfish, it'd be him hands down.
he's been shooting a lot more the past couple seasons but he definitely has a "pass first" mentality.

None of those players are pure goal scorers, as the stats show.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I don't think any of them are really natural goal-scorers. Franzen could probably get classified as that because all he does is score goals, unlike the other three. The Red Wings haven't had a legitimate sniper since Hossa.

Of the four, I would take Z. His backhand is sick and he scored goals at a nice clip until his game evolved more as a center.

As was mentioned, none are pure goal scorers.

But I'd have to go with Z. He's clutch.

I don't know if the stat is still true but since the lockout didn't he have the most playoff goals?

I agree with all of this.

I voted Datsyuk. Here's my logic - disregarding the way these players choose to play the game, if you told all four of them to simply go try their hardest to personally score a goal... I think Datsyuk has the best moves and hands to make that happen. His goal totals are lower than what they could be only because he chooses to be more of a setup man.

In short, Datsyuk got the skill.

Pretty hard to argue with that. On a side note, Franzen is lazy and would score more if he'd hit the net more than 10% of the time.

Now that Boyd Devereaux has moved on and opened up the competition for best goal scorer. I'm going with Franzen.

It would have been interesting to see the responses had Brunner been included in the list. Personally, I'm not holding my breath on a smooth transition for him into NA style hockey, but you cannot deny that he is a pure goal-scorer based on how he is lighting it up overseas. I hear his shot is reminiscent of Brett Hull, but I haven't seen him play yet...

That's exactly what i was thinking when i saw the poll cause Brunner can bulge the twine. I hope this deal gets done soon so we can see him and Z in the NHL together. what was it...1 goal, 2 assists for Z and 2 goals for Brunner? Hope the chemistry gets built up and it carries to the Wings.
