Sorry that is a big downgrade and while a couple Detroit fans want Filppula back at #3C he is a much more impactful winger. Not too mention I don't think Filppula wants the downgrade in icetime and I am more inclined to list him as the two center even while looking at the three.

Zetterberg isn't in decline and was one of the best forwards in the entire NHL over the backhalf of last year. He is the captain in waiting and very important to the dressing room. You're on to something if you want just Zetterberg, but you also aren't going to protect a draft pick in the deepest draft. Detroit doesn't want to move Zetterberg, they also don't want to move Helm. You're after two very tough targets as far as getting them to the table and there is nothing to really make it happen on the Leafs roster.

Datsyuk is probably more available than Zetterberg for you to consider what you are targeting here.
