It's sort of a backhanded compliment when people say BS like "Pavel is the most entertaining player ... I'll give him that."

The haters on the main board use that tactic a lot. Usually, they call him flashy instead.

Never mind that Datsyuk just plain works harder than anyone else. Never mind that he won nearly twice as many faceoffs as anyone else... and that he won like 4 times as many defensive zone faceoffs as anyone else..

Meaning -- he's starting a ******** of shifts in the defensive zone.

Entertaining? Of course. But he's also the hardest working player on the ice. The most effective player on the ice. The best player on the ice in a starting number of games (our team and the opponents).
