Datysuk or Zetterberg

I am interested to see which you guys would rather have to build a team around and which you would prefer your favorite team to add and why for both occasions?? Those whose favorite team is the Wings could say maybe which will mean more to the team in the future.

I'll take Datsyuk... he'll figure out how to play playoff hockey some day.

Well.... Zetterberg, just because I'm not impressed with Datsyuks playoff play, and isn't Zetterberg younger?

As a Wings fan, I am totally happy that the Wings are in such enviable position of having two of the better young players in recent years. Not unlike some years ago Colorado had two good players coming up: Drury and Hejduk. And not unlike Colorado, one of them is a well rounded clutch performer (Drury = Zetterberg) and the other has elite offensive talent (Hejduk = Datsyuk). And I do not have to chose, the Wings have both (and hopefully won't trade one of them to shore up aging defense, much like Colorado did )

I know I know, Hejduk is a goalscorer, and Datsyuk is more of a playmaker. But even so, there are so many similarities in these two cases, it is spooky

Zetts playoffs weren't much to write home about either, IMO.

I'll go with Datsyuk.

When the Wings played the Pens last season, with the Pens trying to hold off the Wings late in the third period, I was wincing every time I heard the name "Zetterberg", because he was lethal that game. Even though he only had the one goal, he was lethal. Yet the other times over the course of the season that I saw him, I was unimpressed. We'll see how he does next year without injury.

Datsyuk on the other hand has impressed me nearly every time I've seen him.

Datsyuk easily. Smarter, more skilled.

I'd pick Datsyuk, but it's fairly close. Zetterberg could be one of the next good two-way players (similar to Lehtinen, but more offense and less defense). Datsyuk could become a really good offensive player who isn't bad at defense (well, he already is).

Zetterberg is a more complete player, but Datsyuk will probably always be the better offensive player.

Zetterberg is more than two years younger and already more complete. If he can improve his speed then he'll be a very dangerous offensive player.

Oh and btw, remember the deke Datsyuk did on Turco? Zetterberg did the same one in the SEL his first year, as a 20 year old. I think it was on a penalty shot and it didn't look as polished, but he did it.

Did Zetterberg do it against Turco?

In training camp before his rookie season, Datsyuk scored 10 goals on 10 different dekes in a shootout.

I'm going to take Pavel...not because I'm biased (well, I am, but that's beside the point), but because I think he's more of a rounded player. He's good on offense, there is no doubt of that, he is better at faceoffs than most people give him credit for (I think he ranked third on the team behind Yzerman and Drapes, but it was close between all three of them), and his defensive skills have been getting better every season.

Though I love Henrik's abilities, I've not seen him take that many faceoffs and I don't know how good a percentage he has. He has good offensive abilities too, but I think the edge goes to Pavel.

But it's a good thing I don't have to choose between them - we have both.

I'd have to go with Zets. He is a more complete package. Datsyuk may have more of an offensive upside but he is a liability defensively. You'll never see him on th PK. That said, they compliment each other pretty well.

That's funny - I've seen him out on a penalty kill once in a while...usually the second shift or so. He doesn't do it often but he does do them. And I also believe he does have a couple short-handed goals in his resume as well.

it might seam that way due to his great vision, slick as silk moves and such, but also take into consideration he's got more experience on zets and is older.

Either way, i see it was a win/win situation

If I could get one of the two I would take Zetterberg only because NJ has had problem getting good wingers. Datasyuk would be eaten alive by Burns anyway. Zetterberg is also young and has more room to improve.

I'm kinda torn. I think Hank will be a better overall player. But there are areas in Hanks game that needs improvement. Especially his skating, he needs to get faster. Pavel seemed to get faster since entering the NHL, i hope Hank can too.

Hey, if Holmström could improve his skating, why shouldn't Henrik be able to do it?

I'll take Jason Wiemer over either of them.

Seriously, I think when all is said and done, Zetterberg will be a better player.

I'll take both on the same line with Miroslav Satan. Only way I'd want Satan to still be a Sabre if he had these two cycling for him.

I'd take Zetterberg over the one with the triangle-shaped head.

Yep not being able to play in the playoffs... Dammmnnn, that's a nice talent. If we only base it on Regular Season then Cloutier is our saviour.
