All you saying Z is done. Not that I don't disagree, but I remember a couple months or so ago when I said "Z should retire" and "we have 5 more years of him" I caught holy hell, even got a 7 day suspension arguing about it. I even called him Old Man Logan lots of times. Nice of you all to join me on the wagon!
I remember a thread earlier this year where I suggested trading him for Thornton (Joe, not Shawn), and people said they wouldn't. I wonder how many still feel the same way after Thornton scored 82 points in 82 games?
Zetterberg, talent wise, is where Yzerman was in his last few years. Difference is, Yzerman wasn't on the top line and we had Datsyuk and Zetterberg as young stars carrying the load. This team has no young stars so we keep Zetterberg on the top line role when he clearly shouldn't be there. It's sad to watch the decline of a player and the decline of an organization that doesn't have a future lined up.
