Wings fan here just gonna chime in a bit..
Datsyuk played center last night against Buffalo, he went 10-2 on faceoffs. He did looka bit out of game shape though and thats partially why hes on that line. But listing Helm Datsyuk Alfie as the third line isnt exactly true. The wings roll on the top 3 lines really evenly.
I would say Datsyuks is the first on paper but some nights the young kids take over and look by far the best out there and others they look like rookies and barely get played
