If Datsyuk was 20 years old today, hfboards would be loaded with posts about his "sick dangles"
Frankly, I'm not so sure about this. Datsyuk never stood out in Russia. Skilled? Sure, but so were a bunch of other kids playing Russia. Datsyuk had skill, but he didn't set the Russian League on fire. There is a reason why Hakan was the only one who scouted him. And Russia was well-scouted in the late 90s. Jarnkrok for example, has been far more dominant in SEL.
