You're the one saying Datsyuk is better in all aspects. I'm saying it's more even than you think.
OK and if things are so equal, why is everyone pushing to throw the bank at Z? If things are "Equal" and the cap is falling, the economy is terrible and theres even talks of the NHL contracting, how does anyone, including yourself justify Zetterberg making more than Datsyuk?

Inflation isn't the answer. When Z's deal kicks in, the cap number will be nearly identical to that of Datsyuk's.
