Without seeing the coefficients and formula applied on a player-by-player basis, it's hard to speculate specifically about Datsyuk. It's possible that Datsyuk gets an inordinate share of the credit in these situations, which could be related to different sets of luck among line pairings. I don't know enough about Pavel to know the number of unique line combinations for him.
It's also possible that (even strength, which is what is being measured) he truly is more relevant than the other stars.
