Z is also banging a rich superstar who I'm sure brings plenty of money to the table also. Z is due for a raise but don't make it sound like he's eating hamburger helper while Dats is eating steaks. At the end of the day Datsyuk is better defensively he has more take aways and won the Selke(what does that award mean again...) granted yes Z won the conn smythe on his defensive play in the finals, but through the entire season people seemed to think Dats was better. Z also has more goals but less points then Dats, lastly he is injuried much more then Dats. You also have to keep in mind who is doing better now that they are split apart.(when you think about it maybe that is Holland and Babs plan in order to lower his asking price) The cap is going down so why should we just say well inflation from Dats comes into play, and not keep in mind the cap. Also yes he does show great commitment to the team if he takes less in order to keep Mule and Hudler that is something Stevie Y and Lids HAVE DONE. Which is what helped make them the legend of hockeytown and untradable, call us selfish, but Wings fans love character and expect it out of the C more so then anyone else on the team. Z himself admitted he needs to take a bit less then he could get in order for the team to be able to maintain high end talent. In the end if Z makes more then 7 I will be highly disappointed.
