He is playing stellar defense and is bringing clutch play when needed. Not only does he belong on a poll as a choice available for #6, he should be in the top five.
He's fourth in the conference in scoring and for most of the season has led the Wings in scoring ahead of Datsyuk, who just went at #5. Zetterberg, not Datsyuk, has been Detroit's most valuable player this season.
He's so underrated that even "most underrated" lists forget about him.
I think you just overrate him eva. He's not that 2007-2009 player anymore. He flashes it, but he used to be that player consistently. Somehow through your eyes, he's still that player night in and night out.
Seriously, where do you rate him right now? Let me guess, #1?
