Oh, Datsyuk on twitter:

“I hope I know him more. More than one year. Now I miss him.”

Your number is something deeply personal; It shows just how strongly Datsyuk feels.

Besides being one of the funniest guys in the NHL (and maybe in all sports), Pavel is a quietly and deeply religious man. This is just one example of that. And as 42jeff indicates, Pavel is, and always has been, pure class.
