Wings are a totally different team when Dats is out, they struggle to even gain the zone at times because they don't have Datsyuk to carry his way into the zone.
Wings dont have great offensive depth at forward, so obviously losing your best offensive player who carries his line its going to affect the offence immensely, but if i remember correctly Zetterberg (and Filppula) were playing great after Datsyuk went down, so cant really blame them for not doing their part or gaining the zone which you obviously were implying.
And last two years Zetterberg has missed 2 games, so making conclusions by those 2 games leads hardly to a great conclusion.
