Social media has undoubtedly told you already. Hockey's greatest magician, best two-way forward and supreme MVP of all living things is staying in Russia for the KHL All Star Game.
Gary Greenstin told the Free Press that Datsyuk, who has been playing for CSKA Moscow in his native Russia during the lockout, has the OK from the Wings to play in this weekend's KHL All-Star festivities in Chelyabinsk, which isn't far from Datsyuk's hometown of Yekaterinburg.
And then he's flying back, because...
"Pavel loves Red Wings organization. He make his name in Detroit," Greenstin said today. "He belongs to them, and Detroit belong to him."
Greenstin, who is apparently of North American descent but seems to speak English as a third language, didn't mention whether Little Gary Bettman plans to suspend Datsyuk from the NHL because he elected to actually play in an All Star Game.

About Abel to Yzerman
Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
