I've been watching NHL hockey for about 22 years and the only other players who I can equate to Datsyuk in terms of excitement are Bure and Ovechkin. Datsyuk is the only player in the NHL at the moment who puts me on the edge of my seat every time he has the puck. He creates a chance almost every time he touches the puck and, more often than not, does something spectacular with it. Pavel Bure was the same way. Whenever he picked up the puck you could sense the anticipation and electricity in the crowd. It was the same way with Ovechkin the year he scored 65.

I sometimes find myself wondering what it would be like be a fan of another team when Datsyuk has the puck coming against you. There must be some impending sense of doom whenever he carries the puck across the blueline.
