Being 34 doesnt make Datsyuk a useless vet. Datsyuk is one of the most complete players in the NHL, probably only behind Crosby and maybe Stamkos. Even at 34 he still produces, just shy of a PPG player last season. Arguably the best hands in the league, and has some of the best offensive vision. He has the unique ability to conrtrol the game on any part of the ice and has incredable hockey IQ, a dream to any team . Until his number decline I dont see Detroit trading him.

If however they were to deal him for a rebuild, Mcdonagh alone would probably not do it. Id look for: Mcdonagh + B Prospect + High pick at minimum.
Umm.... If anything Newyork would turn this down first, value is more than there... Datsyuk is entering his twilight and has about 3 good years left. McDonough could very well be a top 10, certainly already is a top 20 in this league and he's young.
