News out today that Detroit Red Wing Captain and Captain of Team Sweden Henrik Zetterberg will not play the rest of the Olympics due to a Herniated Disc in his Back. Question I have to ask, was he even that healthy to even play in Sochi? I understand the pride it is to play for your country but when your team, the Red Wings are trying to clinch a playoff spot was it worth it to try to play.  I believe he has a gold medal with Sweden from 2006 so it's not like he's never played for a medal before.  I hope at least with him withdrawing that he will get the chance to rest and hopefully be available for some of the Wings remaining schedule its going to be a tough road without him. Get Well Hank!
