Datsyuk To Retire After Next Season?
I've never heard of this guy's site before, so I have no idea how credible he is. He claims to have a very good source inside the organization but I have no idea if he's legit. Either way, check out this article.
Rumor: Datsyuk goes home after 13/14
In case you're not in the know, that's Abel 2 Yzerman, the most rabid Wings blog you'll find on the internet. Take what you will from the post, but Datsyuk was fairly candid about how he'd miss the KHL when the lockout ended, and non-committal about extending his NHL stay after the current contract.
If this turns out to be true, then that's a crying shame, even if I understand where Datsyuk is coming from. Then again, it's just a rumor, even if it's a convincing one from where I'm standing. The Chief (guy who writes the A2Y blog) is usually more hyperbolic than Damien Cox, Eklund and myself combined, but there's just something about this one that I can't shake when I put it together with Datsyuk's own comments at the end of the lockout.
