After watching the game in Winnipeg and going down to ice level for warm ups. I think Z is not 100% he seems very stiff and slow when forced to chase the puck. Now maybe he was just off that night but I do think if Pavel was playing we might see Z given a night or two off.
My biggest concern about this team is that Z and Pavel can be healthy. If the Wings can keep the pace that they are on then leave the team as is till the trade deadline. Might be good options available then
