The Balalaikas Are Ringing Out: Dats Sticking In Russia For A Few Hours More

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.

Gosh that last post sounds like I have found the Club car and drank all the booze left over from last season.

Mostly from half finished glasses of swill some still tasted like NyQuil and Gasoline…

Sounds aboot right.

Drop the puck already eh? I might not make it till Play off season.

What happens when a junky hasn’t had his fix in over six months, and someone dumps a large pile of Meth on the table?  Think I might find out this season.

Seriously.  We’re wandering in a sahara of soul-sucking terrible writing.
