I've been reserving judgment on proclaiming Datsyuk my favorite player of all time. This might have sealed it. Undisputed most complete player in the game. I'm not gonna bother nitpicking the details of who won or lost. Pavs was more than Perry could handle and that's more than good enough for me.

I honestly believe that if Pavs decided to work on the fighting aspect he would come up with dangle style knockouts that nobody has ever seen before. He's that creative.

I honestly don't think this is going to become standard practice, but at least he stood up for himself - quite well, I must say. You don't have to start the fight, but you damn sure should finish it.

Look at that form! :lol:

esteef

He actually did have surprisingly good form for someone who doesn't fight. Did a great job with balance, protecting himself and giving a few punches of his own. Maybe after practice he and Z have stopped playing keepaway and now they practice fighting. :P

I would like to see Pavel add this fighting element to his game. He will not fight Colton Orr, but punks like Perry when he gets challenged like that.

Way to stick up for yourself Pav !! I hope this rubs off on the rest of the guys.

I wouldn't. well, I guess it depends on what you mean exactly. I love that he stuck up for himself, especially against a douchebag like Perry. But he's to valuable to be dropping the gloves more than once every blue moon. Aside from injury potential, it's going to be a win for the the other team almost every single time to get Dats off the ice for 5 minutes.

Still, awesome to see.

I'm glad he stuck up for himself. I hope he doesn't have to but I think guys will think twice before starting something with him. Anyway, that's all I ask from this team that they stick up for themselves.

Corey Perry just became the first guy in NHL history to lose a fight to a four time Lady Byng winner

I love it! First Hudlers pic of the season.

Who would have ever thought that Pavel would be in the thick of an enforcer debate?

What a man!

Do I want to see Pavel fighting often? Not a chance. Do I think it's nice to have in the toolbox if someone pushes too far? Hell yes.

His form was actually pretty darn good. Wouldn't take much to get him trained up with very good technique.

Well, he has a mixed martial arts guy at his summer camp every year, so maybe he got some pointers from him. Couldn't hurt and you never know when you might need that skill.

Check out the Ducks feed, watch their players on the bench, only 2 or 3 of them are tapping their sticks against the boards........I guess the rest of them are just plain embaressed.

One of the Ducks announcers said something very surprising, but also very true.

"He (Datsyuk) is not a fighter, not that Perry is necessarily either"

Even his own play-by-play team recognizes he is a spot-picking pantywaist

Seems like Perry fights a Wing every time we play that retard.

Drake
Rafalski
Ericsson
Datsyuk


Your right, let's look at Perry's track record vs Wings.

Drake ---> Perry didn't even take his helmet off.
Rafalski ---> Can't actually remember.
Ericsson ---> Ericsson wins.
Datsyuk ---> Datsyuk wins.

That's 3-0, even if he did win rafalski's fight his still under 500.

Exactly. Did you see Babcocks quote? Something along the line of "Good for him, but I don't ever want to see Pavel drop the gloves again."

I'm sure Lopeckys broken face and Lilja's broken brain are all I need to say about the dangers of non-fighters fighting.
"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

I think that's a huge part of why he did so well. Most people underestimate the balance it takes to stay on your skates with somebody tugging on your jersey and trying to spin you around. And we know that Pavs has incredible balance. Think of how short fights usually are with guys who don't do it very often.

Rafalski ---> Can't actually remember.

It was during that brawl at the end of Game 6 of their series two years ago. The much bigger, stronger Perry jumped the smaller and fight-inexperienced Rafalski from behind and started pummeling him before he had any chance to react. The same Rafalski that had just returned that night from injury. I wouldn't call it a fight and it reflects as poorly on Perry as any action he's taken in his life.

No, this time started with Getzlaf kind of pestering Hossa, Hossa gave him a shot and Getz went after him. Perry then jumped Rafalski and pumped him pretty good.

Anyone else notice in the pictures the way Pav seems to be smiling throughout the deal??? I mean, in a fight the two dudes usually look really mean and he's there looking like he's just having fun with the whole thing.
