Disgusting, But In A Good Way

Nice to see Datsyuk getting the recognition he deserves in national media.

He claims to have found a silver lining in the broken hand he suffered in December: "When the cast comes off, I ask my doctor, 'Have I recovered so I can play the violin?' The doctor says, 'But of course you can play the violin.' I say, 'Wow, this is great. Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'"


:lol: :lol:

I love Pavel.
Great article! :thumbup:

From the article:

"When the cast comes off, I ask my doctor, 'Have I recovered so I can play the violin?' The doctor says, 'But of course you can play the violin.' I say, 'Wow, this is great. Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'"


Typical Datsyuk quote :lol:

edit: Doh, wingsgirl beat me to the punch!!!

Did he like winning the Lady Byng in a game that esteems rugged play? "Sure," he says. "I like ladies." Asked about his first thought when he has to rush back on defense, he says, "Must get back before Holmstrom, so he's the slow one and not me."


Haha Pavel is simply the best.

How could this guy not be everyone's favorite player? He is simply amazing, on and off the ice.

Mark my words, when his career is said and done, he will go down as one of the all-time Red Wings greats. Expect to see a 13 up there along with the #5.

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

This guys moves are amazing. It's almost like he can make the opposing players do what he wants them to do (Jedi mind trick maybe). I also like how he shoots across his body a lot, like any open part of the net is an option for him.

I adore Pasha. I have since the first time I saw him. He's so wonderful to watch on the ice, but so much more off it. What a treasure we have in him, and I am grateful for it.
