Kronwall has one for the next several years and Datsyuk has a partial. Find it interesting Kronwall put one in, might tell you what some of the players are thinking. If Datsyuk doesn't commit to sign here next season and the team struggles, I expect he would be available as shocking as that would be to many. If they think he is going to Russia after 2014, they will want some assets, if he won't sign a deal by fall of next year things could get very interesting. Even as a known pure rental he will bring in a boatload, in that scenario Holland can't afford not to listen in my opinion.
If Datsyuk were available, I'd want the Oil to be all over it. He'd be a great mentor for Yakupov. Not sure what a fair price tag is for 1-1.5 seasons of Datsyuk. Gagner, Musil, 1st?
