The Red Wings say goodbye to the 2015-2016 season, and possibly one of the best players in the club's history.
This post isn't meant to be a breakdown, or an analysis. The comments are not to shellack the team, or the organization. This is solely centered around the number 13. The Magic Man. Pasha. Pav. That is all.

It's been real. I hope to see Pavel back for another season, but this really hurts. A lot.
I grew up watching Pavel Datsyuk. I was inspired by him after watching the Russian Five. The way he played the game was symphonic. A true maestro of puck-handling and two-way play. Bar-none, one of the best Red Wings players of all-time. Thank you, Pavel. I hate to say goodbye like this, so let's hope it isn't goodbye. If it is, then thank you for doing what you did. You made the game beautiful.
