Especially after the whole ordeal about threatening to go to Russia when he was negotiating a new contract. Well, I didn't believe Datsyuk lacked heart, and the people who did sure look silly now. Same thing with Kovalchuk too. A "selfish" guy who can't play defense and who doesn't pass to his linemates. Kovy is the captain of the Thrashers now. Well, what do you know? People who use that phrase often end up looking foolish.
Kovalchuk was made captain for two reasons.

1) To make him stay.
2) To increase his trade value.

And Datsyuk isn't doing too well in this year's playoffs.
