I'm not saying points don't matter at all, but if you look as far back as 2008 (after Z wasn't playing with Datsyuk anymore) Datsyuk hasn't even had a chance to play with some of the linemates Zetterberg has (Flip would be better with Datsyuk). If you can't admit Z has had better linemates than Datsyuk other than 2009 then you don't watch too many Red Wing games. Most Red Wing fans can agree with this. Both will be in the HHOF, I just think Datsyuk is more of a lock right now than Z.
hmm so for a playing a non physical game he sure does get injured lots the past few seasons (most of those being knee injuries or lower body if i'm not mistaken, which is huge for someone that likes to pivot and turn as quick as dats does)
