Great hit, better goal.

 

EDIT: Ha, I'm watching that compilation video and didn't realize this one was in there.

If he retires after next year, he will not get in. 300 goals and 550 assists will be a good total, but not good enough for the HOF. Over 1000 pts and he's a lock. Over 500 goals and 750 assists and he's first ballad.

Those Selkes, Byngs and Cups would help him get in. As would his reputation as being one of the most unique players of all time. 

 

Definitely think he'd get in even if he leaves after next year. Point totals aren't everything.

As long as he returns to the NHL there's no reason to think he won't break 1000 points. He could break it in 2 more seasons.

I don't agree with such a line of reasoning, but unfortunately thats the way it is.  The HOF favours good players who have a long career (Cicarelli) over great players who have a shorter career (Lindros).   I doubt the fact that Pav has lost over 100 games to lockouts, was a late bloomer, and never had his totals boosted by playing in the 80s and early 90s will be taken into account. 

 

I hope I'm wrong and that 4 Lady Byngs, 2 Selkes, 2 Stanley Cups and the most amazing skillset I've ever seen will be enough.


"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

Danny was so solid for us. Sure would be great to have right now.

I went looking at stats last night and found out something I didn't know.  He's got a better plus-minus than Stevie Y had for his whole career.  Now I know that stat means about as much as anything I ever do or say (which ain't much), but it's still rather interesting.  He's also now about 18 points behind Norm Ullman for 6th on the all-time scoring list.
