Report: Wings Don't Expect Datsyuk Back before November


Helene St. James of the Freep posted a story late last night about how the Red Wings are not likely to put Stephen Weiss on waivers today in order to hit the buyout period that ends on June 30th. In explaining her reasoning, she buries the lede in saying that while Datsyuk's agent says he'll be ready to go by October, the team doesn't expect him back before November.
