I found an article that ponders his chances of captaining Team Russia on MLive.
This article is NOT Brendan Savage's finest moment..
But Datsyuk could very well wear the "C" for the host team in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Other possible candidates include the Atlanta Thrashers' Ilya Kovalchuck, who was the Russian captain in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, and Ilya Nikulin, who wore the "C" at this summer's World Championships.
ATL?? Hmmm.. OK. They're not there anymore and it wasn't even his last team.
