No, it doesn't make his leaving for Russia a silly idea, you're right. It makes his leaving for Russia, partly because he's playing with Abdelkader, a silly idea. Personally, I think it's most likely that next season is Datsyuk's last in North America, and I've thought that for a couple years or so. But I don't think it has anything whatsoever to do with his linemates this season.
Personally, I feel like people took the "piano" comment and just ran with it. As though Datsyuk was going to say anything other than good things about a teammate. If Datsyuk just wanted a guy who could win board battles and get him the puck, I can think of at least 3 forwards who do it better than Abby...
Happy to be proven wrong though.
Not sure what the piano comment is, but I think Datsyuk saying nice things about a teammate and reports that he requested Abdelkader play on his line are two separate things.
