Granted, it's only ESPN, but we at least get one PavelSpeechTM tonight!

Great work, Mr. Datysuk!

It was also reported by, you know, the awards show.

I would hope ESPN knows, since it's already been presented to him. I Definitely liked the speech too.

I can't believe it's on only at 8h30 here in Canada. A big middle-finger to CBC!

Datsyuk's resume continues to get more impressive:

1 nomination for Hart
2 Stanley Cups
3 Consecutive Selke trophies
4 Consecutive Lady Byng trophies (likely 5 by the end of tonight)

All he has to do is keep his numbers above a point per game and do so for another 10 years and he's in the Hall :cool:

Interesting tidbit from the story on NHL.com...


Datsyuk is the first player to win the Selke Trophy for three consecutive seasons since Bob Gainey of the Montreal Canadiens won it the first four seasons it was presented, from 1978 through 1981.

Gainey entered the Hall of Fame in 1992. He scored 501pts in 1139 games (16 seasons).

If Datsyuk ties Gainey's Selke record is he likely to get into the Hall? He'd be 3 cups (as of now) short of Gainey's 5 but played at an elite level offensively while Gainey did not.

Datsyuk also will end up with a ton of Byng trophies (and likely the record for that trophy).

If Datsyuk breaks Gainey's record and picks up more than 4 Selke trophies all while returning to his point per game form of the last 4 years, does that make him a lock?

Those Selke's certainly help. Due to spending several years in Russia, and then taking a couple years to develop into an elite player, Datsyuk's total numbers will look unimpressive compared to his contemporaries, but those Selkes will help offset that.

His Career totals will be lower that others because he was a late bloomer but i would have to think that him going down as the best two way player in the history of the game would help a lot.

IMO, if Bure was on the ballot, then Pasha is a lock.

Datsyuk's had a HOF career up until now, it's up to him to continue the pace to be a Hall of Famer by the time he retires.

Pavel. The best in the NHL :)
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...
