Every team is dealing with injuries on their rosters right now.
I know everyone here is concerned or upset about the hit, but I look at teams like Carolina that lost Staal for a much longer period and acknowledge that injuries are part of the game. The hit was clean, and there should be no suspension or fine. Every team is going to deal with injuries, and the Wings are going to be no different.
Dats could be back in as early as 2 weeks which would make him a go for the start of the season.
