Well the old way was just getting him hurt so why not try a different training trick?



Or we can see it as he is healthy and that's a good thing(trying to be positive)

Kovalchuk makes way more in the khl, and he made a lot here. Movie could definitely make more in the khl.

Not to mention native language family etc could weigh in on decisions

Sign her up Kenny be the nastiest D-person we would have!!!


Okay after that obviously sarcastic remark


How could they NOT suspend for the first time!! Someone needs to sit this young "lady" down and see what gear is locking up cause this is not a good thing. Crosscheck after a shot no biggie swing for the fences using someone's head as the t playing beyond the edge.

funny thing is at the end of the video posted the other favorite whipping boy Danny C is standing as Ozzie comes off the ice. So I am guessing both our "favorites" were stars for that game. My how times have changed

Ya, there is no way you can compare a rookie to a 12 year vet.  Who would do that? Especially the best two way forward in the NHL...C'mon!



KRSMITH17, if you take Tatar and Datsyuk and put them as rookies together, they are VERY comparable.  When Pav started, he was FAR from the player he is today, he was a 3rd line center playing with Hull and Boyd.  He actually had a stigma about him that he couldn't score in the playoffs (he had 15 points in 4 years.)  It wasn't until 5 years into his career that he shook that off his back (16 points in 18 games.) And it wasn't until that same year that he got his first votes as a Selke candidate, finishing 20th in voting. No one is saying he is as good as Datsyuk today, what they are saying is Datsyuk started out similarly and it is not out of the realm of possibility to foreshadow Tatar maybe taking same path to greatness.  No one knew in 2002 that Pavel would be the player he is today.  They knew he had potential and showed some flash of something special, but to become a near Hart trophy winner, nobody could see that.  Tatar could very well be as good as, or even better than Pavel after he is in the league 12 years from now.  Nobody knows...but it isn't way off base to compare both of them as rookies. That would be like comparing Pavel in 2002 with Fedorov in 2002.



One thing to bring up in this discussion was that Dats was the 3rd line center on an absolutely stacked team in 02. Tats was relied upon a bit more to even make the playoffs. Not saying Tats will be the god like creature Dats is but lets all pray for it.


OMG you switch one letter at the front and they are interchangeable!!
