Z doesn't get to play with the best players like Datsyuk does...Homer is better than Cleary and Franzen is way better than Williams... Hank doesn't have a lot to work with... Hopefully, moving Flip there will help him out.
Oh please, now you're just making excuses. Z had a ton of opportunity playing w/ Dats and Homer this year. Hell he's played w/ everyone on this team, Bert, Dats, Homer, Clearly, Williams, Miller, need I go on???
Dats was w/ Bert for a ton of time, and they actually worked out pretty well together. But then when Bert gets paired w/ Z you guys say that Z is pulling the weight of an old man that can't produce anymore.
Then Z gets first line minutes for some games and what happens? Well Datsyuk is back as the #1 center as he should be.
Sorry, I love Z as much as the next guy but in comparison to his past performances or campaigns, he kinda sucks this year. Datsyuk has sucked at times, but not all season and he's actually picked it up when it means the most. Something Zetterberg is expected to do as well.
I have more of a problem w/ Z's season this year than that of Lidstrom's. Most of you should agree w/ that.
But what i do find odd is that he refused to blow. I know in Michigan that is an automatic one year suspension of your driving license. Most lawyers would advise you to take the breathtest (at least in Michigan), so I wonder why he didn't??
