I think of him more as a modern day Lashoff but I only go off his play the past few years.

 

Isn't Brian Lashoff the modern day Brian Lashoff?  I realize the same could be said about Brad Stuart, but at least he is older.

Have we tired of the "Franzen's career is over" conversation only to start the "Datsyuk's career is over" conversion?
 
Haha, I'm guessing you mean cause he was around for some rivalry years 

Haha - I did not foresee that interpretation. No, I hope that Datsyuk remains a productive part of the team as long as his former 'professor' did.

I was just making the comparison that Datsyuk was about as much a part of the rivalry as Rob Blake was.

I've seen a couple of articles where they talk about some of the players, but what I've managed to find in a search today is not as good.  They are definitely talking about having it be alumni from the Rivalry Years. 
Confirmed are: 
Good guys:  Shanny, Lidstrom, Larionov, Cheli,
Bad guys:  Roy, Blake, Forsberg, Sakic
 
Links for that info:

I'm quite sure I saw others but can't find them now.  At any rate, this is a good start.


Yes, I was sure we would see Blake... even though he barely qualifies as having played during the rivalry years.

Maybe Datsyuk will play for the Detroit alumni team.

Since the alumni game is stocked with players from the rivalry days, the uniforms should also reflect that history.  Like maybe a picture of the Statue of Liberty holding a turtle. 


Have the rosters been announced? I'm hoping that we don't see a Colorado roster of Jari Kurri, Theo Fleury, Dave Andreychuk, Brian Rolston, Dale Hunter, etc.

Does that qualify for "master baiter" status?

Sorry, had to go for the low hanging fruit there.


He's a decent baiter. His cousin Mose, though...
