Is it really odd for a guy who hasn't played in 2-3 weeks to be out there longer on game day after coming off injury?


I think he is playin. He said he plans on playing, so I believe he is just pushin it hard just to be sure.

He's done morning skates the past few games, no surprise he did it again. Didn't 97.1 also say we have a deal in plae with hossa? This radio show is as useful as the trade rumors on HFBoards.

thats what I was thinking. Wouldn't he want to make sure he was really ready? Maybe I don't know much on the subject.

Knew I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up too much. This after I just called nearly everyone in my dept. at work to let them know the good news.


Not gonna sweat it either way. So what do we have now?

Franzen - Zetterberg - Cleary
Holmstrom - Helm - Hossa
Samuelsson - Filppula - Hudler
Leino - Draper - Maltby

??

I still like our chances!! Man, our team is AWESOME.

I really don't think he's going to be in tonight. Ken Campbell of the Hockey News said on Sportsnet that he asked Ken Holland if Datsyuk will be in the line up and he said it does not look like it.

There was an optional skate this morning and Datsyuk stayed on the ice for the extra 45 minutes with the injured/scratched players working on his ankle.

A new Lemieux-McCarty fight, as seen by internet forum posters.

Lemieux cheapshots a player with his walker, drawing the ire of D-Mac, who hobbles over. They draw their canes, salute, and cross them, then proceed to repeatedly whack eachother over the heads while hanging onto the bench with their other hands for balance. D-Mac then hits Lemieux's hip, which gives out, Lemieux feebly falls to the ground, crumpling as D-Mac continues to land barely noticeable Yoda-esque cane strikes. Lemieux's age begins catching up to him, crying "what a world, what a world..!" as he melts into a puddle of goo.

Play him! For gods sake the man is practicing for 75 minutes, he should be ready enough for the Stanley Cup Finals! Sorry, just total frustration.

Pavel Datsyuk game-time decision; Justin Abdelkader out as Kris Draper returns
by Ansar Khan

Thursday June 04, 2009, 11:44 AM
Update from Thursday's morning skate: Coach Mike Babcock said Pavel Datsyuk (foot) will be a game-time decision tonight. Datsyuk skated a long time this morning, for about an hour after most his teammates were finished.

"I feel much better, I can make more turns,'' Datsyuk said. "I'll go pregame skate and make a decision.''

Bruce Macleod-UPDATE: Datsyuk just got off the ice after a 90-minute hard workout. He said that he'll be in the pregame skate and will decide after that. Datsyuk said that he worked out three times longer than usual in the morning skate to test himself further, to see how his legs would react to more of a game-like situation.

That said, a 90-minute hard workout in the morning is a very unusual thing to do the day of a game.


It seems like it's his decision now.

Here what I know,there's NO WAY he's jacked up like Yzerman was in 02,but then again there was never a question about Steve's hunger. It's the finals,time to rise to greatness Dats,and show what your made of.

These "day to day" injuries are so frustrating. Let's hope for the best. If not, I'm still confident we can get the job done tonight.

That's not really a fair comparison. I see what you are saying and have always been amazed by Stevie's heart and will (and have never been as impressed or amazed with anyone as I was with Yzerman that year), however his role and what he had to offer the team in 02 is very different from what Dats can provide the team now. Dats main assets are his ability to stop, turn, weave in and out of traffic, and basically do his dangle dangle. If he cannot do those things he is not really the asset that the Wings need and my even be a liability thus his playing might actually hurt the team rather than help them which is something that he, like Yzerman, would not want to do.

Do people really think like this? Because Datsyuk and other Russians always have a stoic look on their face because of the way they were raised and get injured 8 times less than 175 pound Canadian guys, that they don't have any determination or heart? I can't believe that people actually believe this type of logic. It's almost as dumb as calling Yzerman a ***** for not playing on his broken ankle in 2001. If a guy's hurt, he's hurt. This is PROFESSIONAL SPORTS, cupcrazy. It's not like he's got a hangnail and backing out of a pick-up shuffleboard contest. Do you honestly believe that Pavel Datsyuk is not as tough as Steve Yzerman?

And I tried to find an Yzerman hit by typing in "yzerman hit" and "yzerman check", but all I could find was Yzerman getting hit in the eye and scoring goals. When people try to tell me Yzerman was tough, I just laugh. The guy gutted it out through some pretty bad injuries along the way, but he was about as rough and durable as Mary Poppins. Yzerman was the last of his breed - the 80's style hockey phenom.

IMO it sounds like a good trade off to take Abbs out to put Drapes in and take Leino out to put Pavs in. I like Draper's and Datsyuk's grit and plus if he can come back and get on the scoreboard that would be huge. Here is hoping for a Detroit Red Wings Victory/Win in Game 4 of the 2009 NHL Stanley Cup Finals. Let's Go Detroit Red Wings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But you think there's a question about Pavs' hunger? If the trainers say he can't play, and he doesn't think he can be effective on that ankle....what do you want him to do? Say "f*** it" and risk further injury?


This nonsense about comparing people to Steve needs to stop.

Well the good news is, even if he doesn't play tonight, he will play in this series. Many folks were on here saying Pavs is done for the playoffs. That's not the truth, Pavs will play in this series.

That's enough for me.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.
