Dan Milstein On The Pavel Datsyuk Talk

01/24/2019 at 1:46pm EST

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Speaking to the Free Press Thursday, Dan Milstein, who has represented Datsyuk as his sole agent since 2014, said Datsyuk might consider returning to the NHL three years after leaving. If so, the agent believes there’d only be one club in the mix: the Detroit Red Wings.

“It has been blown out of proportion,” Milstein said, regarding Google translations of what he told Russia’s Match TV. “Pavel is not ready to retire. I talk to him six, seven times a week. I have talked to him about a possible return to NHL, but that is all....

Milstein said he has not spoken to any NHL executives about Datsyuk and won’t until “he tells me is considering coming back to the NHL.

“I believe if he wants to come back he would consider only one club.

"He spent entire career in Detroit. If he wants to come back, I believe he would only consider the Red Wings.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
