He's still an elite center. He had a slow start offensively last year because he was playing hurt, but ultimately he brought a strong offensive performance and carried the team's #1 offensive line.
By return to form I meant score 40 goals and average 90 points. Everyone knows Zetterberg is still a huge threat and is one of the more dominant centers in the league in terms of defensive ability.

Datsyuk also doesn't rely on points, so it's irrelevant that Zetterberg has outscored him, not to mention Datsyuk has barely had any sort of elite talent to play with in the last 3 years besides Hossa. The average Datsyuk line is playing with Holmstrom and Franzen, two of the slower, lazier players in the league.
