I keep a deep faith in my heart that he will stay.  However, I plan on talking to him at camp about this, and be assured there will be massive amounts of groveling if necessary.  As the old song says, I ain't too proud to beg.

Holland didn't believe Nick was going to retire when he did either.

I really don't remember that being the case this past summer. The previous summers when he started the 1 year deals, Holland was pretty spot on with each one. This last summer, most of them didn't say anything except they felt he could play a few more years but ultimately the decision lays in his hands. I'm not even sure why many are trying to compare Lidstrom's retirement at 42 to Datsyuk at the age of 36.

I never believe this kind of banter until it becomes a contract with dry ink. This was a comment to a rival city's reporter, at the beginning of what is looking to be a hard fought series, hes not going to say 'well the waters aren't clear, the details aren't set in stone'. His job as a representative of the Wings is to talk from a place of complete confidence. Its like if they asked him if it were game four and the Wings were down 0-3 if he thought the team was done. One would expect his answer to be "There is 0 chance the team loses, this team will take it one game at a time and try to force it to a game 7, where anything can happen'.

Not to disparage my fellow Howel friend but Kenny admitted that he really felt Nick would have played one more year at lease.

he felt he would, knew he could. but he never said he WOULD, that is the difference, babs and holland never come out and guarantee something like that because they feel that person may do it. They never came out and said there is 0% chance we won't get Suter

He could go back and play for "Iron Mike" in Metallurg. It's not like he's a goalie or anything.

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.

Agreed I;m expecting a minimum 3 year contract max 5ish. Thing is, Pasha's 35 but he plays like hes 28/29. He knows his body better than we do. But practically speaking he could keep the contract a minimum and probably finish it up in KHL in his 40s like federov did.

When he is ready to go ... we should build a shrine for him and give him a cushy job with the Wings for life.

Pavel Datsyuk deserves a shrine next to the Sprit of Detroit.  I said it.

Sorry I don't know how to embed a Twitter link on mobile, but dmitry chesnokov said Datsyuk made a decision. Apparently he won't announce yet. Hopefully he announces this summer

Edit: I see now that something similar was already posted a few days ago. Either way, I hope he stays

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Seriously, I imagine they'll do with Zetterberg what they did with Lidstrom - no-one gets more than the captain, and offer him a range of options.  2 years, $12M, 3 years $16.5M, 4 years $20M. which is Kennys usual modus operandi, trading length for cap hit.

 

A 2 year extension would put him awful close to 1000 points and pass Feds for 5th all-time as  Wing.  3 years would see him crack 1000 points for sure. 


"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

haven't seen this posted:

 

 

Datsyuk, who can become an unrestricted free agent next summer, would like to work out a extension this summer.

"I would love to stay," said Datsyuk, 34, who can sign an extension beginning July 5. "Yeah, I hope we agree and we sign a new deal. I hope we agree and I sign for more (years)."
