You will find a rare amount of detroit fans not willing to trade Datsyuk straight up for Ovechkin
Are you serious? First, Ovechkin is a winger and a poor defensive winger. It takes work to be a poor defensive winger. Second Datsyuk is one of the best defensive centers in the NHL. Datsyuk is pretty clear number 1 in terms of Russian players. I suppose Malkins dominance against weak competition is too strong to fall any more than 2nd.
