The way I see it, signing him right now provides even more incentive for him to do well in playoffs. This will take a lot of weight off of his and the organization's shoulders going into the playoffs with all the uncertainty surrounding the situation. Good for the team and good for Dats, he's earned it with his play this year without Hank in the lineup, and I think he'll have a solid playoff campaign.

Obviously, your connection with him far surpasses what even the local media has. (I didn't see your original thread and I didn't move it.)

BTW -- thank you for the heads-up! LGW had it FIRST! laugh.gif


This is tru - LGW had it first! You are welcome!

If this board starts crying because Datsyuk get's over 5.5 mill, somebody better get the buckets because he's probably getting upwards of 6 a year.

I think this year is different. Pav is all grown up now and is playing great all around hockey. He knows every situation, can play in every situation, and has proven that he can get things done on his own without Hank's help. With Hank back, this will be a dynamite line in the playoffs. In the long run, this is going to be a good move for the wings because they probably got him in the 5.5/6 range, when, if he absolutely went ape s*** in the playoffs, he could have demanded somewhere around 7.

so how long did we sign him for and for how much

Still waiiting for the details.........
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

none, but whatevr we pay Datsyuk we'll have to pay Z in 2 years..

QFT, and the way Hank has played he'll deserve every penny of it. That being said, perhaps the extension is just 2 years. In which case, both Hank and Dat's contracts will be up at the same time.

Here's hoping the Wings got him for $5.5 - $6

Bruce Macleod at RWC says the press conference is at 1 p.m.

Good to see Datsyuk is locked up.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

Here is a theory.... They scehduled a press conference to announce:

Zetterberg had a setabck and will be done for the playoffs...
Bertuzzi's neck is WAY more serious than they thought and he will be out for the playoffs as well.




Or they could be announcing that they signed both Bertuzzi and Datsyuk.

Hopefully the later
