The Malik Report

Ansar Khan of Mlive with a report on Datsyuk and Ericsson today after practice,
“Looks like everybody fast, ice is so small, goalie so big, net so small,” Datsyuk said after practice Friday. “I hope everybody slow down and be careful with my age.”
Datsyuk played on the wing with Darren Helm and Daniel Alfredsson. He might move back to center on Saturday.
“We played him on the wall because he wanted to,” Babcock said. “He practiced in the middle today, but I think he’s going to play on the wall again tomorrow. We’ll just see how he does.”
Said Datsyuk: “It’s first game I played in one month, it’s a little easier to play on the wing. But I’m hoping I play tomorrow at center.”
Asked if he thinks he can handle more minutes, Datsyuk said, “That’s coach priority. If he trusts me more I’ll play more minutes.”

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.
