That's the only comparison here... I doubt that Barry even brought up his name in discussions - why would you bring up Zetterberg, when there are so many other players that are making more than Zetterberg, but producing less than the Sedins?

This is just the whole Detroit hype-machine getting credit for giving out long deals to lower overall cap hit on players, and as I argued above, it's not even Detroit's innovation here - it's been done by other teams, that somehow Detroit is getting the credit for now.

I'd be willing to bet though that bringing up Zetterberg at all in this is all TSN's doing, without his name mentioned at all in negotiations... of course anything mentioned in the media has a bunch of fans automatically believing it, as always.
I know TSN brought it up. That doesn't mean that everyone here has to adopt it as a guideline to discussion.
