Good win on the road but that extra point is stinging a little. Oh well, 5 points back of MTL with one game in hand. Tomorrow is going to be a tough game.

Meh I'm not too concerned about the that. Wings don't need to pass anybody to get in the playoffs. What's important is that they got 2 more points of separation on the teams behind them and they got a ROW

The wings more than respect Datsyuk. They offered him a nice extension, allowed him to play in Russia, and gave him time off afterwards to be with his family. This wouldn't be done by the wings - or any organization - because a player dangles the "I can leave at any time." If any player did imply that I am sure the wings would let him walk because that is piss-poor attitude and a cheap bargaining ploy. 


I think Datsyuk probably should have been back right after elimination to receive treatment and assessment going forward (and brought his family along to visit because they are important too). That would have been the fair thing to do for him and the organization considering everything they have done for each other. Instead we are 1 game before the season starts up again and we don't know what his status is. 



This is the issue i have


From mlive


Pavel Datsyuk (knee) practiced and said he hopes to play, but didn’t sound too sure.

“I hope,’’ Datsyuk, who wasn’t particularly long-winded, said.

Asked if he feels much better than he did before the Olympics, he said, “Similar.”

Asked if his status will be determined after the morning skate, he said, “I hope. I don’t know. Hard to say.”

Asked if this injury will bother him the rest of the season, he said, “I hope so one day the pain is left. Now it’s still the same.”



so he can play through this injury while playing for his country, but he can't play through it for the red wings? i'm sorry but i'm not giving him a pass for that.

Agreed. The entitlement and sense of ownership over Datsyuk is getting a little ridiculous here...


the red wings do own him. He is under contract and paid good money to play for the red wings, not russia


i know i'm in the minority here, but he had no business playing in the Olympics if he's so injured that he can't play for the wings
