Tough to say this...
But I will say this... Pavel brings his A game more often than Fedorov.

Fedorov's had speed/strength/skill to dominate a game, territorially.

Datsyuk's speed is underrated. His backchecking is the best I've ever seen. His stickhandling is the best I've seen. His passing is among the best I've seen....

I'd like to see what Pavel Datsyuk could have done in the 80s and early 90s.

I see a guy like Adam Oates with 1400 points -- Oates was nowhere near the player Datsyuk is.
