Datsyuk-Zetterberg is one of the hottest duos in all of hockey right now and the wings are going to try and ride them into the playoffs. It makes sense that Pierre meant that we go after him as a FA.

ovechkin is on record saying datsyuk's the best passer he's ever seen. now, if people are talking about paying zubrus based on his interaction w/ ovechkin, that would justify stretching even more for datsyuk. i'm thinking if 'keep number 8 happy' is part of our mantra, he'd pick the russian over the lithuanian, given a choice.

I cannot agree with signing an UFA just because it would make Ovechkin happy.

We've been down this road with Jagr. It ain't happening again. Sign the best player for the team...not for Ovechkin's feelings.

That being said....I think Datsyuk would indeed be a good center for AO just because he's a decent playmaker. If that's the feeling from Mafki and the FO...then it's all good if they sign him.

alls i'm saying is if we need a center for his line (which we do), all things being equal i'd prefer it be someone with whom ovechkin's familiar and comfortable. after all, people are saying we should pay zubrus more b/c ovechkin likes him.

do you think makfi would run a deal for a center by alex before he pulled the trigger?
