This is a blow to the way the Wings have been playing. I agree with some that this is a team sport however, Dats just opens the ice for everyone to move around him. I've heard Hank say that numerous times. He'll get back when he is ready and 100%. I think this team as a whole is strong, has been playing well as a unit, and will stand up and keep our position atop the West.

As long as he is back before March 10th. I will be attending my 2nd ever NHL game in Nashville and if Pasha isn't there, it won't be the same.

Get well soon!

Let's go WINGS!

Our deadline acquisition was a healthy Pavel Datsyuk

Come on man, keep the faith. The squad's been owning it, as a whole, lately.


He is just a troll. He has no faith, or soul for that matter. He just is here to collect negatives while being negative.







Pavel really was having a Hart caliber season. He never would have won it mind you, but he was playing like an MVP.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

i don't get this. you call me a troll for suggesting that this will affect detroit's run for 1st in the west, but then you go on to say that datsyuk was having an MVP season.

losing arguably the best forward in the game isn't going to affect them at all?

Well its's good that Pavel is getting this done now rather than playoff time. This is the time for the rest of the Wings to step up there game that much more. I'm looking for Z to really bring it :thumbup:

sure. but you said quite differently:

any hope of finishing first in the western conference is now gone.


see the difference?

Wings have a history of losing their best players to injuries, they have a history of other players stepping up.

i think it's pretty apparent just how valuable datsyuk is to this team this season.

I'm glad Pav is getting things taken care of before the playoffs, but it is a total bummer for me - I'm going to my first game on Saturday and was hoping to see him play :( Oh well, I guess I would prefer seeing him play in a deep playoff run if I had to make a choice.

Now's the time to get it done.

We should be fine, we have enough depth to play .500 or better without Pavs. Someone will step it up with more ice time. Who would have thought we'd break the home winning streak record without Howard?

f*** that... I don't ever want Pav out of a game... But yeah, at least it's rather minor. I just wonder if 2 weeks really means 3 weeks with most of their estimation of recovery from injuries.

They played above .500 when Dats broke his wrist last season.

Good news is we have a lot of home games during this 2-3 week stretch when Datsyuk sits.

I'm guessing he'll return sometime before the four game road trip out West.
