Babcock told reporters in Chicago on Wednesday that there's "zero" chance the Magic Man will leave Detroit and return home to play in Russia.

This just puts a giant smile on my face if it's true. But wait, KUKLAS KORNER SAID THAT THEY HAVE AN INSIDE SOURCE AND HE'S SCARED OF THE EASTERN CONFERENCE?!!!!! They obviously are a better source than Mike Babcock himself. :rolleyes:

Great news....but stuff has happened before. I won't be happy until his name is signed on that line.

Not to be a downer, but I've heard coaches say this about upcoming free agents on their rosters countless times, only to see them leave anyway.

For the record, I believe that Babs is right, and that Pavel will re-sign here. I just wanted to point out that I've heard this song and dance before.

I'll celebrate when I see the "extension signed" announcement.

Pavs will have a 7 year, 7 mil per contract extension by July 1. No doubt in my mind.

I never doubted this much. Still, it's nice to see it affirmed by a reliable source.

True... but unlike some coaches and GMs, Babcock doesn't bulls***.

I highly doubt it will be a 7 year deal if he re-signs.  He's going to be 35 in July & to do a 7 year contract at this point would be ridiculous.

If re-signed, Datsyuk will be 35 when his new contract kicks in. There is thus not a chance that he would be offered a seven-year contract.

That's what I'm worried about.....long term, high cap hit to which he likely won't be worth.  A contract like that wouldn't look too good in a few years (going by the law of averages, decline will begin to set in).  Such a contract would bring him to the age of 43 I think.

 

It worked well with Lidstrom where he started signing shorter term deals once he got to a certain age, but not sure what happens here.

 

Not sure why Babcock would be so confident though, he's not the one negotiating contracts.

I could see him sign a new 3 year deal at 7mil per.
Then pull a Lidstrom and keep signing one year deals until he feels it's time to go home.

I hope this is true, but I seem to recall Babcock saying the same thing about Lidstrom retiring.

I doubt Babcock would have said this had Pavel not made clear his desire to stay with the team.

 

More, Datsyuk is not the sort of primadonna who would demand a huge contract at this stage of his career.

I do not think so, no one said anything really, they all said it was up to lidstrom. The only thing I recall was babs saying Lidstrom could still play at least another couple years, but when he was asked about it he never said lidstrom wouldn't retire, he said Lidstrom had not come to a decision yet and that when he did he would announce it
