I seem to remember hearing that Marchenko was highly rated for this draft as well, but he had made it known that he would only come over if he were drafted by Detroit. Hence why we were able to pick him up in the 7th.

Ahh, but you did tell me to "get it right." I had it right.

No you didnt, because no sane person would choose to drive 30 hours each direction every week or so when flying is easier, faster, safer, and depending on the price of gas in russia, cheaper. The only reason you described it as a 30 hour trip was to make Pavel look like an *******, which he isn't.

That still doesn't explain a 30 hour flight assumption  :lol: . 

I didnt assume a 30 hour flight time, I assumed that Lefty either didnt know or was exaggerating the flight time between St Pberg and Datsyuks home town and was pointing out his mistake.

Not sure? To test out his new BMW ? See the country side. Idk if you're looking for an actual answer but the point of my original post was his reference to the driving time between St. Petersburgh and Datsyuk's hometown which is 32 hours. For some reason you thought he was talking about a 30 hour flight. Idk where you got 30 hour flight time from btw lol. 
 
Datsyuk's new team is about 6 hours away from his hometown by flight and 32 hours by drive. 


Not sure why I assumed he would travel by plane to see his daughter? Because when I imagine the illustration of a Venn diagram, Pavel Datsyuk would be located at the intersection of the following sets:
A) Needs to travel a great distance
B) Has the means to afford a plane ticket
C) Isnt a complete moron

He probably means driving 30 hours. (It's a 32 hour drive to his daughter Lefty get it right) 

Yea, and if he walked it would take about 2000 hours. Why the f*** would a professional athelete and millionaire drive anywhere for 30 hours?
