Nice tribute by Dats, I can't remember another player as established as him ever switching his number for a tribute.

As a side note, did anyone else think it looked really weird seeing #24 on Datsyuk? I kinda had to do a double take when I saw that

We're also talking about it over here: http://www.letsgowin...an-plane-crash/

I hope I know him more. More than one year. Now I miss him.


Classy move by Pavel to honor his friend.

This doesn't surprise me, Pasha has a big heart and I think it's a great tribute to his friend.

I was looking all over the place for Pasha and then I saw him with #24, and I knew what he was doing. What a beautiful tribute to his friend. I even got a hug from him this morning! :wub: Man, Pav, you made my week!!!

Who says she's not?

Maybe she's just an incredibly well-put-together pile of goo.

Wonderful for Pasha to do this for Salei. No wonder our Pat is so fond of him. On or off the ice, he is rivaling Nick as the Perfect Human.

...but...but...the Wings don't have any class. That's what I hear from other teams fans....

anyhow, great, GREAT move by Pav and shows his super huge heart! I am interested to see the patches. I still think it would be super cool if the NHL put a small sticker of their logo on the back of ALL helmets this year. There were so many former NHL players and a few who hadn't yet had the chance to come over. I wish Illitch would paint Salei's and McCrimmon's name in the ice for the season as well. Over the top? I don't think so... I just know (hope) that there will be a moment of silence in the home opener vs. Ottawa for those two and their teammates.

I can hear Bud Lynch now: "And now fans, would you please remove your hats and join the Red Wings in a moment of silence for our fallen teammates, Brad McCrimmon and Ruslan Salei, may they and their teammates rest in peace......" Dim the lights, spot light on their names in the ice and cue up the pictures of them on the jumbo-tron.......silence..... "Thank you and now will you remain standing and welcome the Red Wings own, Karen Newman, for the Canadian and U.S. Natioanl Athem's...." (they may even mention Demitra since he was an Ottawa Senator for a bit...that would be cool and classy...)

I know! Sheesh! I remember an Av's fan in here one year saying Sakic had more class than Yzerman because he handed the Cup to Bourque first and Yzerman (or anyone else) has ever done something that classy. (I guess Lidstrom handing off to Drake doesn't count either...) When I mentioned that Yzerman handed the Cup to the Illitch Family in 1997, Konstantinov in a wheel chair in 1998 and Scotty in 2002, he still argued with me... oh well! Go Pav! Go Wings!

The only fanbases I hear that say we don't have any class are Pens and hawks. Everyone else knows we have class so I have no idea where that info is coming from.

As for Pavel, that's future captain material stuff right there!

I am really glad that Pavel is doing what he can to honor Salei. It's a bittersweet but fitting tribute from someone who is obviously very respectful of what it means to pay honor to those lost in this tragedy. Don't even know what else to say. While it's been a couple weeks, whenever I think about this whole situation, it's still just incredibly sad. It's one of those events that really puts a lot of things in perspective.

Datsyuk is such a great humble guy. I think this is great and shows what class Dats has :thumbup:
