Recommended Posts

Man would I love Datstyuk as a Canuck.

Errr.. No thanks.. Nope, this does not help the team whatsoever.  We have a Datsyuk in Petey.. Correction, we have a Petey.  How is Kovalchuk working out for LA?  Over the hill slow players are not suited for the NHL.  The man has tremendous skill, but he is slow by todays standard, and he would take a roster spot from someone else.  And how much of the year would he spend injured?  Hire him as a skills coach, and he can help the entire team that way.

Would expect any return would be to a contender, wanting a last kick at the can.  If it's Detroit, then apparently not and just to play NHL hockey.

lol, he's 40, and a C

 

But it would've been intriguing watching him and Pettersson have some fun with the puck.

he must have not got the memo yet that Chiarelli got fired. That Koskinen contract must have rippled through the KHL :lol:

No thanks. He's 10 years past his prime, getting slower every year and not even a ppg in the KHL.

No interest in having him here at 40 years old.

 

Would rather a fresh duo of the Sedins coming out of retirement.

I'd assume he'd go back to Detroit and I hope he does. None of this Brodeur in a blues jersey nonsense

Sundin in Canucks jersey. Naslund in a Rangers jersey. Iginla in an Avalanche jersey. Datsyuk in a Canucks jersey? :bigblush:

I don’t think he fits the tempo of the Canucks style.

 

sure fire hall of famer and I guess it would really depend on what he is going to expect for a contract as to how many teams would be interested at this point.

9 goals in the KHL in 30 something games. He would have about as much impact as Jagr did for the Flames.

I'd rather be just stays retired and leaves his legacy intact.  We already have the next Datsyuk in EP40.

Someone should check if EP and Datsyuk have ever been in the same room together...

Hire him to help work with Goldie's two-way game.  For all the flack he gets Goldie is talented but just needs to stay committed.  Pasha was elite at that.

Probably his agent trying to gain leverage in contract negotiations with KHL teams.
