In Topic: Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Yesterday, 05:27 AM

He's walking away from $5.5 million, the contract was front loaded.


You must have missed the part where he didn't get $2 million of last year's salary because he's opting to go back to Russia, so Ya he's losing $7.5 million

That means we will probably never see him in a wings lineup


Right. Cause we've NEVER had that type of player on the wings

I don't think we lose anything either because we get Maple Leafs 3rd round pick next season if we don't get it this season..?


Ya we get it next year for sure. No 3re round pick for us this year, via the zidlicky trade. Guy was selected in the third round, and we get him with our worse third round pick after he's had two 40+ goal seasons since being drafted. I'd say we win this deal big-time

I can't think of any logical reason why Holland would have pushed for 2 years when Pavel only wanted 1, that would never happen (it would be the other way around, 100% of the time).  Unless there is certain other variables at play (not in Datsyuk's case) where they get to UFA quicker and cash in, etc., the player is going to want term.  The trade off to get that term is to take slightly less on a per year basis.


It was 3 years, I misspoke when I said 2 years. But, I see your point, my point is Holland pushes for that 3 year contract believing that will stop pavel from leaving to Russia after his 1 year deal is over. I don't know how you can say %100 of the time a GM would want a shorter deal. There's lots of factors that go into finding the right deal on both sides. Younger players for sure want longer deals. But guys like datsyuk who are debating leaving to Russia might want the shortest deal possible. And yes he was talking about finishing his career in Russia before her signed the deal

What if Holland was the one who pushed the 2 year contract and datsyuk only wanted one year? And Holland told him if he wanted to leave early he could. Anyone think of that? Datsyuk has never been selfish, he's always put the wings first. Maybe I'm wrong, but we'll never know
