Well, he was this confident about DeKeyser too! I like!
Now, Mr. Holland, GET SOMEONE TO PLAY ON HIS LINE!!!! A #1 SNIPING SCORER!!!
Make a trade, buyout some players, bury some players so whatever it takes to make that cap room available to get that #1 guy!!!
We are enjoying our team....but We DON'T Like Our Team....It needs change, it needs scoring, TWO scoring lines would be GREAT!
Pavel already left the Wings once for Russia, and would still be there if his team hadn't folded and he was allowed to return to the NHL. Now with his daughter living there and the short season and high salaries being paid, I can't really see why Datsyuk would stay here.
I am being honest when I say, I do not remember this happening....I know he played in Russia during the lockouts, but I don't believe he ever LEFT Detroit to play in Russia.
Pavs will have a 7 year, 7 mil per contract extension by July 1. No doubt in my mind.
Considering they cannot negotiate with him until July 5th, that would be kinda hard to do....but I like where you are going with the idea!
