"Pavel Datsyuk tries his darnedest to succeed despite his obvious shortcomings."
That had me proper LOLing
Now, if he'd said Pavel was small, skinny, anaemic and bow-legged, but works hard to overcome that, he'd have a point.
"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
