Datsyuk Has “Lots” To Think About His Game

Chuck Pleiness of Red Wings Front with a post-skate update on Datsyuk,

Pavel Datsyuk appears to be getting closer to returning from his lower-body injury.

“Good,” Datsyuk said when asked how he felt. “I can skate now. It’s much better. We’ll see what happens tomorrow. (It’s) not walking up, it’s when I skate. I feel better every day. (I) can’t say anything more.

“It’s much better now,” Datsyuk continued. “(I’m) looking forward to skate tomorrow and it’s day-by-day. (I’ve had) too many injures this season, maybe it’s my age. I also have lots to think about my game.”

more including Ericsson excited to return to tonight.

I hope he is not thinking about pulling a Rafalski

He has expressed that he wants to play back home before hanging ‘em up.

I understand it, but I would not be happy if he left.

Jesus H Christ, does he have cancer?  This has got to be post concussion stuff from that elbow.  Groin pulls don’t have you re-evaluating your career.  Would explain why they’ve been so mysterious about it too.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
