Zetterberg and Datsyuk are both getting old, 32 & 34, past their prime. Perhaps they are satisfied, how much more fire can there be within at 34 after winning a few cups already?
What is there besides dats & z, Filppula?
Btw where is Nyquist at? Did he fail at NHL level?
Dats and Z are still as dangerous as they have been for a couple of years, Flip had a great year last year, they have the same 3rd and 4th line as last year and they have Brunner who was tearing up the Swiss league. Mix in Tootoo and some of the younger prospects and you have a good deep offense, if they shoot the puck. It almost seems like we are watching a High School basketball team with the orders to pass 5 times before taking a shot. Or they may know how terrible the defense is and dont want to risk errant shots leading to breakaways. No way to tell right now.
