They are effective with hard work, responsibility, puck skills, and hockey IQ. Cant wait to see Brunner and Nyquist come into the fold when things get going this year ....
Extremely well said. Datsyuk and Zetterberg are not reckless and incredibly physical like an Ovechkin type player. I don't think you'll see them start to really get worse for at least another couple of years, players like them have longer primes than most players because they rely much more on skill and intelligence. Injuries, however, could hurt Zetterberg. He isn't even close to done yet though. He had a bad start to the year with a great second half. He is still going to be a great two way center who is near a ppg for a couple more years. If you think Zetterberg and Datsyuk being a year older is going to majorly affect our playoff chances you really don't know the wings at all.
