Me too.  Are we related?
 
I don't care what we could get for him.  He's given us enough years, thrills, goals, and fun sound bites that the man deserves to go out as he pleases. 
 
Even if he's cool with a trade, I don't want another team to have his talent against us.
 
Not to mention that I don't want another team getting him and then we lose to them in the first round, which would be our luck.


I agree totally. We must be related.

The only and I mean ONLY way I'd trade datsyuk in his last year would be if he came and asked us to trade him to the contender of his choice. I wouldn't shop him around.

I'm gonna pretend Datsyuk is going to play forever like I did with Nick and just deal with that very horrible day when it comes.

I hope he plays longer than Chelios.  He makes me happy, what can I say.


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

Really, all this talk of letting him walk at the end of his contract for nothing vs. trading him to restock the cupboard is nothing but a thought exercise. Even if Kenny already knows that Pavel is going to walk after 2014 & go back to Russia, I doubt he would have the balls to pull the trigger on a trade anyway.

If Dats continues to be stuck with the likes of Cleary and Abs I hope he goes back to Russia. I feel bad for him getting stuck with those two plugs.

I wouldn't worry about anything coming from 97.1. Literally you, myself, and anyone who reads this message board and/or HFboards knows more about hockey than those dolts.

 

Aside fromt that, all they're really doing is reiterating the Kukla's Korner article. No new information.

 

lol I wasn't taking it seriously at all

We're having a tough time on the road," Datsyuk said, "but now I hope we're unstoppable like a red machine"


"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

Pasha has nothing left to prove here, a theke is named after him, the guy has won Stanley Cups and is easily one of the best hockey players and took a huge paycut to re-sign in Detroit. So whatever he decides to do, I won't hold it up against him. I am sure, he is missing his friends and family, so enjoy his last season.

I was one who questioned the Dats-Cleary-Abby line, until I heard Datsyuk wanted to play on a same line with them.

Datsyuk said Franzen delivered the pass “like mailbox.''

And the quote from Nev. Pasha still has his joke side, and obviously still enjoying playing in Detroit. Does this change anything? Not really but people can stop saying he's not joking and having a miserable time. He wanted Abby on his line and I'm sure he's glad to have mule on his side. Another example of we simply don't know as fans. We want to say he's miserable with his linemates and we're wrong. We wanna say he's not having fun and being his normal self... he's joking and kidding around the past two days. His daughter will and always has been the main element so it doesn't change. We just have to wait and see what he wants to do at the end here.

Of course he is going to say that. The guys is a great team player. Hes not going to say "These guys are terrible and I would benefit from playing with someone other than the worst two forwards on our team this year" no matter how much he may think it.

I don't know why, maybe it's wishful thinking on my part, but something deep inside tells me he's not quite ready to leave yet.  I will probably be doing some heavy duty begging and groveling when I see him this fall, but I just don't think he's quite to the point yet where he's going to go away.  Like I say, maybe it's wishful thinking on my part, who knows.

If (and when) Datsyuk leaves, it will be on his own terms.  It's pure speculation as to when and why, but I've seen other elite players make a move because the club doesn't get them the help they need to play up to the standards to which they hold themselves.  It's got to be a grind for Pasha.  A couple of times this year (last night being one of them), you could almost see on his face: "I have to do this, or no one else will... " 

 

His daughter is in Russia after his divorce, so I can see him leaving to be near her.  He's a freaking rock star over there, and can play wherever he wants for as long as he wants, and live like a king in Mother Russia.  As if Feds wouldn't give up some precious body part, to get Pasha back? 

 

From what I know of Datsyuk as a player, he will probably be loyal and retire a Red Wing, rather than go to some other NHL club.  My heart couldn't take seeing him in another club's jersey, personally.  I seriously doubt he's leaving because he's scared of being in the East.  ;)

 

I hope he stays a few more seasons, but like someone else posted, I don't entertain unrealistic (wishful) notions that he will be a Wing until he's 50.  I think missing the playoffs, should that happen, will be a catalyst one way or the other re: his departure.

No, but if he didn't ask to play with them, he wouldn't say anything at all, it's obvious he asked for it, because as soon as flip came back cleary went down to 3rd line and abby stayed on dats' wing to open room up for him

What has become interesting is, over the last 48 hours now, every RW forum, reporter covering the Wings etc.... has talked about this story. Yet not one word from Holland, datsyuk etc..... Sometimes silence is deafening........

Here's a thought:  Can Mr. I just foot the bill to move the entire city that Pavel's daughter lives in to somewhere in Michigan?  Instead of Pavel going back to Russia, let's bring Russia to him.

I'll tell  you what, it sure was nice to see that wonderful smile on his face after the Edmonton game.  I've been missing that smile lately.
