Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg has been visible in labor talks and while battling opponents on the ice can be frustrating, dealing with Gary Bettman and the owners is proving to be maddening to him.

Zetterberg tells Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press he and the other players feel like the owners aren't playing fair with them at all.

"We can't really counter what they're offering," Zetterberg said today, after a dozen Red Wings skated at Troy Sports Center. "It feels, right now, like if we don't give everything that they want, it doesn't really matter. And we will never do that."
