That's a really tough one. Took me awhile to decide, but I think I'd take Thornton. He just so goddamn good.

No question, Thornton gets the nod.
"We've been in the same spot all year long. We won 50 games for the fourth year in a row. People think we're just hum-drum and boring.
No, you know what we are, we're good. You can't do what we do every single day and not be good." - Mike Babcock

Datsyuk... for these reasons:

1. Has said all along #1 priority is to stay in Detroit... Thornton's #1 priority is not a city or a team, but rather his personal material possessions.

2. Datsyuk is a team player and wants to win... Thornton is a selfish superstar with an overinflated ego.

3. Datsyuk knows what it takes to win and has experienced it and would take it before the money... Thornton could care less about Stanley Cups, he's in hockey for the money, in which case he chose the wrong sport.

Either

a ) You've been wearing Wings goggles for far too long

or

b ) Your name is Gary Greenstin.

Yep. He seems to forget that Thornton fixes is more of what the Wings need, too.

Thornton all the way! He is a definitve power forwrd! But he is also a Boston Bruin. And ain't going anywhere anytime soon. Sad, but true!

Even if the Wings sign Dats(God Bless Him), and he develops into his full potential...
He will never be the player that Joe Thornton is. Also Sad, but true.

Sorry to do this, but I got to thinking about discussions past... Seemed like it might be amusing to resurrect a Zombie of an old thread given the circumstances. Hope it's worth a couple of laughs :P

During this series on TSN, they were talking about Ovie being the second best in the league still (behind Crosby), and how many of them thought it was still the case. Everyone said no, that Dats was now the second best - I think he's better than Crosby so take that for what you will. Then again everyone brings something different.

Nice thread resurection :D

Not many would choose Thornton now methinks
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
