A lot of people on here have been saying for years that Artie is a Datsyuk-lite. He's obviously not at the same level, but he plays in the same mold. Even a 60-pt Datsyuk-lite would be a tremendous asset on any team.

Datsyuk-lite? Are we being serious here? Love AA, but I can't see him developing into even 10% of what Pavel is as a player.

60 point very defensively responsible player who can handle the puck.

Arty's 22 and has already shown the defensive responsibility and flashes of the puckhandling skills.

That's the very definition of Datsyuk-lite. We're not saying he'll be as good as Datsyuk, but he can surely play the game like Datsyuk.

He's already more than 10% of Datsyuk, sorry.

40-point center with very solid defensive skills, a talent for picking pockets, and while not a physical player doesn't shy away from contact either.

Go watch Anisimov. See how many times he steals the puck in the neutral zone and turns defense into offense.

Artie has serious skills. He isn't polished or consistent yet, but he has the capacity to be one of our better players. 60 points isn't his ceiling, either, by any means.

The kid really needs to work on keeping his head up or that career is going to be pretty short. Otherwise, I completely agree with you.

The good thing is he's taken some serious lumps and come through without any ill effects. Call it luck, or toughness, but either way it lets him learn his lessons without missing any time or suffering ill effects down the road. He's been drilled a number of times but hasn't missed a game in three years.

So tired of hearing this. First, he improved in that capacity in his 2nd year. And second, he has NEVER missed a game due to injury in his 4 year professional career. That's not to say that he will never get hurt, but it isn't the problem you are making it out to be.

Sather traditionally gives players less if they are not in a arbitration year.
