Datsyuk has the better hands, and he also has a very long stick for his height, which makes it even more impressive IMO.

Datsyuk, pretty easily. Kane's hands are impressive, but Datsyuk's hands are pure magic.

/thread, no point, we already know the answer

Kane has better (quicker/faster) hands, but Datsyuk does things with a puck that no one else in the league can do.. and because of that, I think his hands tend to be a bit overrated. People see what Datsyuk does, his dangles, his moves, etc. and assume that it's all hands but Datsyuk doesn't out-quick you with his hands (though at times, obviously, he does) when he dangles you, he out-thinks you. It's almost like he knows what the opponent is going to do before he does it, and couple with his hands, makes players look ridiculous. He's always one-step ahead. He puts the puck into an area he knows the defender can't get it, then knows how they'll react, and then makes them look ridiculous.

Kane's definitely in the top 3, but I think Datsyuk is the undisputed best.

I'd say Datsyuk has the best hands in the league. Kane is right behind him though.

If it makes any sense, Kane has better hand-eye coordination, but Datsyuk has better coordination throughout his entire body. His dekes have much more to do with lower body explosiveness and his core. And he has the best timing in the league, which is more of a mental thing.

Obviously Datsyuk, but I like what Kane can do at high speeds. Real slick.

At this point in their careers? I'll take Kane by a very slight margin.

The almost weekly poll. I'd have to go with Kane this time around.

Kane has unbelievably sick mitts.

But Datsyuk, not close. HFBoards overrates the hell out of Dats but this is the one area of his game for which there can be no argument.

Kane - Faster
Datsyuk - More creativity, pure control

Depends on what you prefer

Datysuk, he's incredible. Most underrated player of our generation too. Don't know how he's never in the discussion for best player on the planet.
