Still Picture Time!


Three things:

1. "Detroit defenseman overwhelms Preds"

Wow. Pavel Datsyuk is a center. Yes, he is very good defensively, but he's a center.

2. "Datsyuk shows his rare offense"

Datsyuk's point/games played totals the last six seasons:
2009/10: 70pts/80gp
2008/09: 97/81
2007/08: 97/82
2006/07: 87/79
2005/06: 87/75
2003/04: 68/75

3. "Usually a set-up man, Pavel Datsyuk suddenly has turned into quite a goal scorer."

I understand what they mean. He's racks up the assists every year. You know what else he does? He scores a decent chunk of goals. His goal totals the last six seasons: 27, 32, 31, 27, 28, 30. I wouldn't consider that "rare." In fact, only fifteen players have scored more goals than Datsyuk since 2003/04.
