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.
Agreed the NaySayers were saying that the Wings would collapse after Yzerman retired and we only won a cup in 2008 and almost another one in 2009 If Datsyuk does decide to go to Russia after next season all the more power to him we have enough talent coming down the pike that we will be okay for years to come.
