Zetterberg is grittier and has a shoot first mentality. Datsyuk has the best hands in the game. He's also the best passer in the league. I don't know if it's fair to compare them, they compliment each other and that makes them both great.

Wow, at least there aren't any chicken-littles here... (and the 'hey, we're being realistic' excuse doesn't work)</p></blockquote>
Umm have you watched these games?
Each and every game so far. Yes, they are terribly rusty/out of sync, but everyone is already calling for every player's head to roll. It's a short season, but we're only 1-2 (if we don't win tonight). Is there a reason to worry? Not yet. And yes, I realize it's a shortened season, but you have to give them a handful of games to hopefully start to gel.
When classacts like Selanne, Toews, Boyle and now our next captain are fed up you know something has gone very wrong. Also the media has jumped on the fire Bettman wagon at some point the owners wont have a choice other than finally firing this 8 million waste of a human.
"It's another disappointing but expected move from the league," Toews told the Chicago Tribune via text from Phoenix, where he is working with his personal trainer. "This seems to be our commissioner's bread and butter; it's almost like he is excited to take away hockey from the fans and the players just because he can."
The longer it lasts the nastier it's going to get...
Bummer. Good for Chris though. He's been my absolute favorite non-Wing since he played in the playoffs with the Muskegon Fury in 1998-99 and his years with the Griffins when they were Ottawa's farm team.
