Datsyuk Still Out, Olympics In Jeopardy?

from Chuck Pleiness of Red Wings Front,

As for Pavel Datsyuk, it’s beginning to look more and more like his chances of participating in the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, are getting slimmer and slimmer.

“Nope,” Wings coach Mike Babcock said shrugging his shoulders when asked if there was anything new on Datsyuk.

Datsyuk is the captain for Russia.

Asked if he would be back before the Olympics, Babcock said, “I don’t know. I’m just like you. I just keep asking.”

Everyone who has an injury which has sidelined them for significant time the last few weeks should take the olympics off so they can heal. Alfredsson, Ericsson, Monster, Howard,  Z, Pavel…  All of them should be getting healthy.
