The Malik Report

A link merits an entry when it’s Datsyukian

The one major flaw with TSN's absolutely spectacular online offerings involves the fact that they are not embeddable on other websites. As such, they're usually relegated to "hey, look at this" status until YouTubers translate them to watchable formats (see: Kronwalled), but this one merits mentioning right now:

TSN's compiled a top ten list of Pavel Datsyuk's best goals and shootout goals. It's almost 3 minutes long, and I'm sure you've seen them all before, but they are worth your time all over again.

UPDATE: We All Bleed Red on YouTube posted the video:

Not bad for a player without much natural talent, if we are to believe Glenn Healy...

I remember some pro hockey player saying they watched the #1 goal on that list, the one where he’s skating on one skate, and that he and his buddies tried the same move. He said they gave up after a half hour or so of continually falling, worried they were go to hurt themselves badly if they kept trying.

For the multi-sports fan, appreciate Datsyuk, Miguel Cabrera, Calvin Johnson, Justin Verlander while they’re still in Detroit—once in a generation (I know, I’ve said it before).

That goal on Turco is in my Top 3 goals of All-time from all players.  (Admittedly, most of those “all players” are Yzerman)

Looks under-talented to me.

Watching this video makes me realize how much I’m going to miss having Nashville in the division.

Meh.  I’ve seen better.

No.  No, I can’t say that for certain.

Probably my favorite Dangles goal is this one.  To this day, I still wonder, “How does he do that???  That’s just not normal…”
