When Pavel Datsyuk decided to leave Detroit and call it a career, we knew he was going oversea to play in his mother country. Datsyuk joined Ilya Kovalchuk and the most stacked team in Russia; the SKA St. Petersburg. Believe it or not, the Magician is only 7th in scoring... on his team. Still, Datsyuk is one of the KHL's biggest marketing assets and his spot on the All-Star week-end was a lock as soon as he signed his contract with the SKA.
With moves like these, no wonder why the KHL wanted him back so bad.
