Dealing With Datsyuk

According to the translation by Snapshots at Mlive, Omsk is claiming "By Russian Law, Datsyuk is Ours". Not surprising to me, they are in a battle with Dynamo but I am going out on the limb and think this is business, you know CYA (cover your a**). If you recall, a few days ago, one of the chiefs from Omsk said, if we lose Datsyuk, to Detroit, it is not our fault. The latest Datsyuk is Ours is just another way of deflecting the blame of losing Datsyuk to Detroit. Just my opinion, but I have seen this before and it is a common Russian strategy. We should know something about Datsyuk's final destination sometime today. update 5:53am, via the Detroit Free Press,
Zetterberg said he had talked to his buddy throughout the summer, and he hopes Datsyuk, a centerman, will be back. Coach Mike Babcock said the same thing last week. "We need him," Zetterberg said. "He's a good player. It's new rules. It's tough to get everyone you want. Hopefully we can get him back. I think he wants to be back here."
