Zetterberg Talks World Championships

from Lucas Aykroyd of IIHF.com,

Are you having fun so far? Everyone here seems pretty excited to see you.

Yeah, absolutely. It’s great to be back home and play for Team Sweden. Hopefully we can get a nicer ending here than we did in Detroit.

Throughout the year with Detroit, you get to play for one of the best coaches in the business in Mike Babcock. What are the differences between his approach and that of Pär Mårts?

I think we’re playing a bit more aggressively [with Sweden]. We don’t hold back anything – we can just go. That might be the biggest difference. In Detroit, maybe we’re thinking a little bit more defence than we do here. We’re allowed to do mistakes and still keep on playing.

So….I see a comment against the coach here….you are not allowed to make mistakes here? You have to hold back playing in Detroit? Wow..maybe I am reading way too much into this, but if you are going to be our next captain, this is not what I want to here (right or wrong)
