Then why are you here? I DO care about the NHL season and the Red Wings. I don't give a flying f*** about the Olympics. I want the players who are being paid to play here to have their loyalties to the Red Wings. "We" don't owe them anything. Zetterberg has the life and career he has because of the Red Wings, not because of Team Sweden. Let's hope this puts an end to this ridiculous Olympics BS once and for all.
Spoken like someone whos never gotten the shot to represent there country in something. To most athletes (especially those from Europe) representing ones country is the highest honor. Yes even more so than the Stanley Cup. Hank owes nothing to the Red Wings or Red Wings fans. He has the life he has because he worked his ass off not because the Wings gifted him a paycheck. He helped bring a Championship and almost a second to this city when the team was supposed to be in transition. If anything the fans owe him for the joy hes brought them. He's earned the right to put Sweden over the Wings. I dont know what fantasy land your in but the Wings are not contenders this year. Sweden on the other hand was a contender for a Gold Medal. Common sense dictates which one he should go for at the end of a career. Challenging his loyalties because he went and played in the Olympics is just disrespectful for a guy whose battled for over 10 years for the Wings and its fans. Get over yourself.
Z will slowly have to gain back my respect since he dared to try to play in the Olympics - it could have jeopardized his playing time with the Red Wings.
Yes because carrying this team on his injured back the past couple months is not worth your respect.
