Do You Want To See Pavel Datsyuk Back In The NHL?

via Bob McKenzie tweets,

Heard some idle chatter that 40-year-old KHLer Pavel Datsyuk might consider a return to the NHL next season but his agent Dan Milstein says: “Every year we sit down and talk about options but (returning to the) NHL isn’t something he has entertained.”

Datsyuk, BTW, turns 41 in July. ARI currently owns Datsyuk’s NHL rights, until July 1, when he would become UFA in the NHL.

He said if he did return he would only play for Detroit. Doubt he’ll return either way.

No, I don’t want to see him return anywhere in the NHL.

I don’t need to see him in a “Fat Michael Jordan With the Washington Wizards” phase.

Love the guy, but no. Still feel a little sour about him leaving in a 3 year contract, anyways.

Regardless, him coming back would do nothing to help his reputation. There’s no way he would come back and play at the same level as when he left.

Great reading comprehension.

“Every year we sit down and talk about options but (returning to the) NHL isn’t something he has entertained.”

You’re angry again, but I get it, no doubt years in mom’s basement has created lots of hate, it must be directed somewhere.

I, sir, will gladly accept your emotionally-unhinged barbs, for the greater good! smile smile smile

You should probably log off for a few, go show your ass outside if you have to show it somewhere.
