Gonna be a close one between Datsyuk and Zetterberg. For now it's Datsyuk but assuming Zetterberg plays the rest of his career here as captain, he'll be above Datsyuk by then.

Basically neck and neck between Datsyuk and Z for me, but Z has been the best Wings playoff performer as a forward since Datsyuk and Z had played together. That puts him over the top, Datsyuk has had some awesome playoff runs as well, but never hit Z's peak.

Actually, while Z was more steady in PO, Datsyuk far higher PO peaks.

He has not outperformed Z's Conn Smythe run, not for a moment. If you are going with a couple years ago, yes he helped crush Phoenix, but really who turned around the San Jose series from 3-0 was Zetterberg getting healthier as it went along and he had 8 points in 7 games on a bum knee.

People seem to forget the physically intimidating force that Shanny provided when he was on the ice. He would throw down with anybody and he never got whooped as far as I can remember. And when he got mad, he became a better scorer. Instead of going Lapointe and just getting himself thrown in the box for nothing, he'd channel it into an overwhelming offensive push. Dude was money.

And peaked with the Blues. Z's Detroit resume is far better.

He wasn't as effective or as consistent as Zetterberg offensively, and he wasn't within Zetterberg's universe defensively even from the moment Z stepped on NHL ice. Shanahan has this mystical aura about him because of "the trade" that makes people see him as more than he was.

And if you want a physically intimidating force, Chelios, Konstantinov, and Probert are all also up on the poll...

Give it a rest.
While I think Shanny was a big overrated later in his career here, there is no denying 1) his importance to this team in 3 cups, 2) His popularity in Detroit.

Saying he peaked in St. Louis is kind of misleading, too, as NHL scoring took a nosedive while Shanny was in Detroit

All questions you can't answer and I can't answer because we never watched.

It's very tough comparing players from different eras. It's even tougher when you never saw the players --- which is the reason why this poll is silly -- and your anger about so and so over so and so is sillier

It wasn't so much that Z turned it around as much as it was as it gave us two viable lines

I'd still take Z over Shanahan. Shanny is a hall of famer and one of the greatest goal scorers ever, but Z has done things in the playoffs that Shanahan never did or could do.

Agreed. Exactly what I said in the first poll. I'm sure some of these players should be ranked above the current ones, but how I am supposed to judge someone when I've never seen them play?

I've watched Kelly and I think you are pretty silly. Kelly didnt play that much at forward until '56.

How exactly do you mean that his stats went down in the playoffs?

Anyways heres a bio by BenchBrawl

Edit: I also recommend that you read round 2 of the defensemen ranking project in the history section for more detailed information on Kelly before you trash someone.

I mean compare his regular season stats vs playoff stats (IN DETROIT--the team we are talking about.

By the way, I'm not trashing Kelly.]
You should learn to read one's words before criticizing someone for things they never said

Zetterberg's best offensive years in Detroit are better than anything Shanahan did in Detroit. And Z did that while playing elite defense.

Kelly was only very rarely used at F in Detroit; he was a full-time center in Toronto because the Leafs converted him to match him against Beliveau.

If you don't like the nature of the poll, you don't have to participate. I think that was established before when you complained.

There are too many factors in play to say which one I'd take over which. Do we get them from age 22? For their whole career? In the run and gun early 90s, the trap-happy late 90s and early 00s, the more open late 00s, the re-trapped early 10s? Do we have a lot of centers to go with them? Do we have a lot of scoring wingers? Do we have anybody that can take and give a hit and a punch? Shanny was a better player for longer, at least so far. Who you'd take is dependent on what else you have to work with and what you're missing.

Shanny's a Hall of Famer, Z's not there yet. Even if you compare just their Detroit years, Shanny's 9 Wing years were better than Z's first 9. 57 more goals. 9 more points. 2 more Cups.

Red Kelly is very high especially considering it can be argued his best years were in my least favorite rivals teams jersey. A part of this is the Wings specific for some of us and that is weighted. I mean there is a reason Adam Oates isn't an option in the poll.

His best years as a defenseman was in Red Wings. Hes best year as an shadowing forward was in Toronto.

Without Shanny helping lead the charge in those brawls...I'm not sure Detroit ever gets over the hump and wins a cup.

Who knows if any of this success happens without the first one.

Until the first one happened, it seemed like it might never happen.

I never saw Kelly, but that's not really fair. He played nearly 13 seasons in Detroit and just over 7 in Toronto. Had his Hart runner-up season in the D in '54. Would've won ~4 straight Norrises in the early 50s had they been given out before that. Wasn't competitive for All-Star nods or individual awards in Toronto.

Personally, I'd take an elite defenseman over a good center in any era.
