Good read on Datsyuk. Dude really reminds me of Magic Johnson on skates.

DETROIT -- Pavel Datsyuk doesn't like noise. He doesn't like yelling and he doesn't like hockey sticks smacked like beaver tails on the ice. Not while the game is on.

Johan Franzen found that out early. After a shift on Datsyuk's line, the Russian made sure to speak with Franzen on the Detroit Red Wings' bench. "Don't yell," said Datsyuk quietly. "'I know where you are."

Franzen smiled thinking about it. He is in his third season in the NHL, played in Sweden's elite league and in international competitions, but he hasn't had many linemates who claim to see everything on the ice and then back it up with their play.

"He's sick," said Franzen, using English slang as a compliment. "You think that he doesn't see you, but he knows exactly where you are. And he hates when you yell for the puck. Hates it. He wants the other team to forget about you and then he gets you the puck."

Pavel Datsyuk is an admitted pass-aholic. He would much rather pass than shoot, rather stick-handle than set up for a one-timer.

"I like passing," said Datsyuk. "When somebody scores in an open net after my pass is the best. If somebody says, 'Would you rather score or have somebody score off your pass?' … I'd say pass."

Datsyuk's shot needed work when he started in the NHL.
Now in his sixth season in the league, Datsyuk has improved greatly in that department. His teammates have teased him in the locker room about wicked high slap shots that he unleashes in practice and on occasion in games.
"When I played in Russia, I practiced more passing," said Datsyuk. "I passed a lot more than shoot. I didn't have a strong shot. I didn't have much sting on my slap shot. Now I do. My slap shot needed more work.
"We have bigger rinks (in Russia). Everybody tries to be closer to the net to shoot it. Here, every shot is danger. In Russia, you can have the best shot and it's still not dangerous. It's a different style over there."

Aside from being a bigger part of the Russian game, passing is also a natural inclination for Datsyuk. The forward spends significant time after practices working on skills like saucer passes and games of keep-away.

"People who don't play hockey probably don't even see 20 percent of the small things he does," said Franzen of Datsyuk. "He knows all the tricks. Hitting the other guy's stick so he can't get the puck. It looks so easy, but it's not. You don't want to play against him."

PIT 4 OTT 3 (OT)

Pens win the opener. Sid with an assist, Geno with a goal. The PP really struggled without Gonchar and Whitney, though.

F the Sharks! But at least you arent the Kings. Selanne is resigned and ready for a full season of pain for the rest of the NHL. Sure he is 38 so my only concern is tired legs come March. This team, I believe, will be better than 2007/08. Of course being bounced in the first round didnt help but Perry and Getzlaf having another year under their belts is going to help offensively much better than last year. My baseball is officially done so on to hockey!

NJ 2 PIT 1 OT

I'm actually not mad that we were ahead the whole game and allowed NJ to tie it with just a few mins left and then win it in OT. We had no business being in this game at all. Flower kept us alive the whole game. We were totally outplayed by NJ. I'll take the point.

Kopi signed till 2016.

Sorry Socal...Malkin and Crosby won't be enough for Kopi.;D


SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA (TICKER) —The Los Angeles Kings locked up All-Star center Anze Kopitar to a lucrative seven-year contract extension on Saturday.

Terms of the deal were not officially disclosed, but the Los Angeles Times reports that the contract is worth $46.7 million.

Kopitar, the 11th overall selection of the 2005 draft, has blossomed into one of the league’s brightest young players over the last two seasons. He led the Kings with 77 points last year - 32 goals and 45 assists - and earned his first All-Star Game appearance.

“Anze is a special player, but he has also shown a strong work ethic and the type of character we believe is necessary to help shape the core of our team,” Los Angeles general manager Dean Lombardi said. “Along with some of our other young core players, the commitment Kopitar has shown at a young age should continue to improve and elevate his teammates and the franchise.”

The 21-year-old Kopitar is the first Slovenian ever to play in the NHL and played two seasons for Sodertalje SK of the Swedish Elite League before joining the Kings for the 2006-07 season. In two seasons, he has 52 goals and 86 assists over 154 games. He has one year remaining on his current contract.

“This is really exciting and a little overwhelming, to be honest,” Kopitar said. “I am happy to be apart of this organization for the next eight years. I can focus now on hockey only, and on doing what I want to do, which is to bring the Stanley Cup to L.A. I am also excited to remain with a great group of players who have gotten the same commitment from our organization.”

I think clearly the top two teams are the Wings and Sharks in the West. Sucks the Kings had to open the first two against the Sharks.

Anyway Kings claim D Kyle Quincey off waivers from the Red Wings according to a Red Wings blog.
