Wow, some of the responses in this thread...unbelievable.  His back has been injured all year.  It's not like he injured it MORE by playing in the Olympics.  If he wasn't playing in Sochi he'd be playing in Detroit, and he'd still be getting injured because the NHL game is more physical. 

 

Are you people just dying or a reason to b*tch or what?

Should've saved that for a person it's actually relevant for.  Not Kip.

If you don't think that playing hockey has an affect on his back, I will assume you've never strapped on a pair of skates.

Gary Lawless tweeted that the Swedish media is reporting that he is done for the entire Olympics. Duthie retweeted it, so hopefully Duthie knows how credible this guy is, because I sure as hell never heard of him.

And nobody knows whats going on.  Everyone is calling Lawless out and nothing new yet...so I'd take it with a grain of salt until more details emerge.

Datsyuk isn't even practicing with Team Russia. Now our other big guy is out with the back acting up again. Too many good players on Detroit, means too many guys being invited to the Olympics. Selfish to say, but I really wish this year wasn't an Olympic year. And guys are either too stubborn or pressured to take part, to ever decline an invite - especially classy guys like Hank and Pavs [who is nowhere near ready to play from that concussion].

Why is the entire world suddenly freaking out about Z taking another maintenance day? He pretty much takes one every day there's not a game. I don't get the feeling that this is any different.

Okay, so what is Pav's injury and where are you getting this information or is that your opinion?  I've heard groin, knee, and now concussion again.

Because the Swedish media is looking for any story to make a big tabloid deal out of.

For the record, you never really get to 100% with a back injury. 

 

I was gonna mention this. It's probably not crazy to assume he's never truly at 100%. Which is pretty amazing when you consider how good he is.

Well, to be fair, the best thing for his back and his long-term health and our playoff/Cup chances would probably be a two-week vacation, not flying over to Russia and battling for Olympic Gold for two weeks against stacked Canadian, American, and Russian all-star teams. Not that I'm really complaining, but I can totally understand how him aggravating his already touchy condition in Sochi would rub people the wrong way.

Well, I am not going to speculate, Z knows what he can do, and what he can't with that back.  But this makes me sad for him.  He was having a blast.  I feel so bad that he's hurt and can't play for his country. 

 

Just hope he can recover and come back for us, soon - love the guy and he makes such a huge difference for the Wings.  

 

 Feel better, Hank.  :wub:

This is kind of what I'm talking about:
 

Henrik Zetterberg’s absence from Sweden’s team photo session didn’t go unnoticed this morning. Turns out he was receiving treatment for a herniated disc in his back and could miss some time in Sochi. Tough for the Swedes, but even worse for the Red Wings. They have to be thrilled that both Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk are battling through obvious injuries to play in the Olympics instead of resting up for the stretch drive with Detroit.

They couldn't postpone the team photo shoot until their Captain could participate? Jeez. Injury aside I also feel bad Z couldn't even be in the team picture the year he's Cap'n.

Absolutely. He probably also feels that the C on his chest makes him beholden to Be Like Stevie, re: playing through stuff that would render mortal men fully incapacitated.

Z is an absolute beast.  He's the most intensely battle hardened leader in the NHL since Stevie Y in the sense of playing through injuries and somehow still taking his game to the next level when called upon.  He's been nothing short of inspiring this season.  I guarantee that he plays most, if not all the games in this tournament and then comes back to the Wings and misses likely 3-4 games the rest of the season prior to giving the Wings team a manly thrust into the playoffs.

I didn't say that playing hockey doesn't affect his back.  My point was that playing OLYMPIC hockey didn't hurt his back any worse the the NHL already does.  His back has been hurt all year.  If there were no Olympics he's just be playing with a hurt back in the NHL.  The Olympics had nothing to do with it, so those suggesting that he'd somehow be healthy if not for the Olympics are missing the mark.

 

I thought that was pretty clear from my original post.

His back would still be sore from pulling around Abs piano that he is no doubt drunkenly playing  :lol:

If there NHL players aren't allowed to play in the Olympics he wouldn't be getting a break.  He'd be playing every other night in the NHL, which is even more physical than the Olympics is.  So, it seems like what everyone really wants is for NHL players to participate in the Olympics, but not Red Wings players.  That way every four years our guys get a vacation.  Seems a little unrealistic to me.
