Burnside: Zetterberg On The Verge Of “League Best” Consideration

I’d like to apologize up front for interrupting the self-pity train many Wing fans have decided to step in front of.  I guaranteed a Game 7 last night didn’t I?  Isn’t that enough?  What else can I do for the naysayers, the pessimists who commented with “it was a great run but now it’s over and I’m sad but not so sad that I won’t watch the Pistons what time do they start anyway?”

I don’t know. I just don’t. 

Hey. Scott Burnside says Hank’s the man. 

Zetterberg, 26, has quietly become one of those players around whom you could build not only an offense, but a winner.

“He would be a guy to build around, he makes others better. That is a rare trait that gives a team glue,” one Western Conference scout told ESPN.com this week. “His Red Wings pedigree is going to stick with him no matter where he plays later. So, he goes up high on the list [of top players].”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
