Who Will Lead The 2013-14 Detroit Red Wings In Assists?

Over the past few seasons Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk have battled each other to be the Detroit Red Wings assist leader. Recently, Zetterberg has had Datsyuk number and has beat him out of the sport 3 of the last 4 seasons, but before that it was the Datsyuk show.

But before we crown one of them we will have to discuss the two new players on the Red Wings who could be in line to take over the crown.

Daniel Alfredsson is only a few seasons removed from a 51 assist season and despite his age, he could once again reach those numbers with Johan Franzen, Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, and Stephen Weiss around him.

Stephen Weiss is the other newbie on the Red Wings would could be in line to take over the crown. He has only had one big assist season, but has been consistently around 30 assists and that is with less talented players around him.
