Datsyuk, Zetterberg to stay put???
Thefourthperiod.com is reporting that GM Ken Holland, of the Detroit Red Wings, is trying to re-sign Datsyuk and Zetterberg, two players which played a great role in the 03-04 season. But the problem with this is that Datsyuk is reportedly asking big bucks from the Wings. Datsyuk is asking $4 million US while Zetterberg is asking $2.5 million US. Reports have said that if Detroit can’t pay up for Datsyuk then he may just stay in Russia…
After signing defensemen Mathieu Schneider and Chris Chelios, the paper claims the Wings have about $10 million left to sign Datsyuk, Zetterberg, defenseman Niklas Kronwall, a goaltender, another defenseman and a few third and fourth liners.
More news for the Buds however, the leafs seemed to be very interested in the young Zetterberg as well.
