Well, Datsyuk was on fire between mid-November and mid-January - 39 points in 28 games in that time. Do that over a season and he's got the Art Ross and Hart in the bag.
But since mid-January it's been 10 points in 15 games, probably caused by injury, and the Wings still went 12-2-1 in that time span which shows that this team can buckle down and preservere even with a limping Datsyuk.
It's unfortunate for Pavel's career though as issues like this may keep him out of the Hall of Fame, he could really use an Art Ross or Hart or at least another top 3 finish.
