Contract is for at least 3 years...

Is that from the radio too? Or are you just saying what you think...

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

Hmm....maybe they're announcing the Red Wings are changing their name to the Blue Wings before the playoffs start!

This PC is obviously about Datsyuk signing an extension.
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.

How many 1st line centers in his age bracket do you get for under 5.5M?


Savard, Tanguay, Nylander, Langkow, Horcoff, McDonald, Arnott, Briere, Koivu, Gomez, Sedin, Reinprecht, Jokinen, Handzus, York are all first-line centers near Dats' age who make less than that.

Modano, Cammalleri, Weight, Crosby, Holik, Staal, Spezza, Sutherby are those guys out of his age range that make less than 5.5m

Fedorov, Sakic, Sundin, Yashin are guys outside of his age range who make more than 5.5m

Lecavalier and Thornton are only ones in Dats' age range making more than 5.5m.

Is Dats closer to Thornton (6.667m) or Briere/Savard/Gomez (5m). I am going to say the latter.

wow. then I kind of wish they had signed him after the playoffs, even if it cost a little more.

I hope this is another Holland gamble that pays off. his luck has been pretty good this year.

You mean like, Bertuzzi had to come up to the private box and put the muscle on Greenstin?

No I don't think that had anything to do with it. Bert will be fine. If he doesn't play in the Season finale it'll just be as a precaution. He'll be ready for Game 1.

Someone will offer Briere upwards of 6 on the open market this summer...count on that, Briere will cash in. Datsyuk is a better all around center than Savard without question...try watching Savard and dont just focus on his numbers. Defensively he's a horror show. My point is you cant compare Briere and Datsyuk because both will make 6 or more after this summer.

I'm not too happy about signing Datsyuk prior to the playoffs, but most of all I hope Holland didn't go overboard here. Datsyuk hasn't shown that he's anything else than a $5 M/year player. Even if Datsyuk decides to show up in this years playoffs, his market value would not increase dramatically (relatively speaking). I expect that Holland managed to get a discount for signing him prior to the playoffs. No more than $22 M/4 years. More than that would look quite ridiculous in my opinion.
