Datsyuk's numbers might not pop out, but I find it very unlikely that he doesn't get in. You have to keep in mind who votes on this. Hockey people and his peers hold him in the highest regard. Even if he leaves in two years to finish in Russia I have a feeling he is still pretty close to a slam dunk. Especially if Russia wins Olympic gold and I think they should be favored on home ice to do just that.

They say they count the players impact on the International level and in other leagues. It is the hockey hall of fame not just the NHL. On top of a lot of the awards he has won, he was the Russian league mvp during the last lockout and has a championship there as well. A Gold medal in the WC. He has quite a list of accomplishments, Zetterberg is the Wings guy that needs to keep up strong play in order to get this honor.
