Datsyuk Wants A Contract By September 1st

from the Russian Hockey Digest,
In our negotiations we came to the finish line. I announced to the Detroit’s General Manager Ken Holland that he needs to make up his mind relatively to Datsyuk by September 1st. Pavel is willing to play in the NHL. Red Wings’ first priority right now is to sign a contract with Datsyuk. As you can see, we have the same goal. September 5th is a deadline to get players on a roster in Russian Super League. It’s clear that Datsyuk can’t wait the entire month in uncertainty. He would play in Dynamo. What salary is Datsyuk expecting? I and Mr. Holland decided not to announce any numbers. But it’s well-known that Detroit signed 18 players already for 31 million dollars. So, there is a room, especially that each club may have an over-budget of the cap of 39 million dollars until October 1st.
