Datsuyk has another year left with the Wings, He cant sign in the KHL until after next year this would be a clear violation of his current contract he can only resign with the Wings after the playoffs not with a team over in Russia this has to be false I'm sure it's just more leverage on Datsyuks part to get a better deal out of Detroit.
I agree i think it's just a ploy to try and get more money out of Holland, Even though I'm sure that Holland would give Dats a blank check and tell him to fill it in.
Dats doesn't need to play around if he really wants a lot of money, so I'm thinking is just Russian media speculating.
How many Selkes/Selke runner ups? Probably top 5 forward in the league. Undisputed top 10. Lots of other NHL teams ready to bend over backwards if the Wings won't. If he does want to go to Russia after next year, I won't complain either. Done so much for this team, thanks for all the awesome.
While the media was focusing on Toews and Hossa being quiet this series, they overlooked the fact that while Datsyuk and Zetterberg have been great defensively, they both need to step it up offensively if this team has a prayer in Game 7.
