The vaunted chemistry between Z and Brunner is great and all, he's surely doing well so far.
But is there any reason to believe he couldn't do as well/better with Datsyuk? I still think Datsyuk is a superior playmaker to Zetterberg. If you're in a spot to score and you're open, more often than not he gets you the puck with a perfect pass. Brunner doesn't have to change his game, he just keeps going to those open areas and shoots like he has been.
Z's working real hard, and I love it. But part of me also thinks he's working too hard. Franzen is seriously being a lazy bum lately. This game was the worst I've seen him in recent memory. Brunner is fast but mostly for offense. Z had fantastic chemistry with Filppula last year. Z went on such a tear last year when he had Filppula on his wing. Why not switch Brunner and Filppula?
Or just dump Cleary to the fourth line and find a real shooter for Datsyuk. Really sick of watching that guy.
