Puck Daddy chats with Pavel Datsyuk about injury rehab, Lidstrom and Holmstrom retiring, Red Wings realignment, NHL Awards

Interesting interview as always. The one thing that concerns me is that his wrist is still not yet fully healed. :unsure:

I love his sense of humor

"I decided that those two should room together so that we'd have only one goalie alive after that first night."

and

"Maybe I will apply some heat to it by laying on the beach."

Great article!

Good interview. I knew Datsyuk was intelligent and quick-witted, but it's nice to see it in writing.

Of all the individual trophies you have not won, which one would you most like to win?

"I have so many of them that I haven't won. I think I would most like to win a trophy to the best goaltending duo."

I want to know what the joke was that Dats told the interviewer.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Great interview, personally almost cried when he said he thinks Nick and Homer are retiring after this year. I've known it has been coming, but even when the actual day comes, I will be speechless. I truly wish we could develop some sort of ageless magic power so Nick, Pavs and Homer could stay young forever...

Best part is how he wants to win an Art Ross.
Stay motivated Pavs.

How could someone not like Pavel? Skilled hockey player with great sense of humor, great combination.

I know how he feels about the sprain hurting a long time...I'm going through the same thing right now. A couple weeks of doing absolutely nothing would be a good thing. Soak up the sun, my friend, and be lazy as hell. You earned it.

One has to wonder how much bigger will his star be if English was his native language, the media in N America would love him so much more.

Well the fact that he's Russia or just plain Non-North American already puts him at a popularity disadvantage.

Mickey Redmond has hinted he can speak and understand a lot better than we think, but he plays with the media.

He's a lot smarter and quicker on his feet than he lets on. Don't let what you see fool you.
