Rightfully so, Datsyuk is a top 5 center.

Klefbom is the only one that could be an impact player, and that wouldn't be anytime soon.....

IMO if DET wants to retool then this could be a good option.
Klefbom is almost NHL ready and a healthy Whitney is as good as anyone they have on D. Shores up the D for them and gets them Gagner and Omark
