The Value Of Z

Henrik Zetterberg will be 28 years old come late October and Ken Holland recently mentioned he hopes to begin contract negotiations with his agent when training camp rolls around. 

Holland stresses Zetterberg is a priority signing for the Wings and hopes Henrik will take a little less money to remain a Wing before he achieves UFA status on July 1, 2009.

The magic salary number seems to be $7.45 million a year for the Wings, that is the amount Nick Lidstrom makes and the Wings want him to remain the highest paid player on the team.

Will Zetterberg buy into the Wings system or better yet, what would you want your GM to offer Zetterberg to come play for your team?  With salary numbers like $10 million for Sundin, $9 million for Hossa and $8.5 million for Gaborik kicking around, is Zetterberg worth that much to your team, or maybe even a little more?
