Pavel Datsyuk says he will leave the Red Wings after playoffs

Pavel Datsyuk wants to go home. His career has been here. His wealth has been here. His celebrity has been here.

But his heart is somewhere else. It’s in Russia — with his teenage daughter and his roots, both of which he wants replanted into his life.

“I’m thinking I go home after this season,” he said, in a long discussion at the Northville home of his agent and friend, Dan Milstein. “I may not be done with hockey, but — it is hard to say — I think I am done playing in NHL.”

While this may be a shock to fans, it cannot be to the Red Wings. The truth is, Datsyuk has been squirming to go home since 2012, the year he played in Russia during the NHL lockout.

To add a player, Wings must subtract salary

The phone calls have started to come daily.

The NHL is in its final countdown to the Feb. 29 trade deadline, offering teams a last chance to try to improve before the playoffs. The Red Wings will be looking — but they have to be especially conscientious buyers.

Could the Wings make a push for Dustin Byfuglien

The Wings do like Winnipeg’s Dustin Byfuglien, a right-handed shooting 6-foot-5, 250-pound behemoth, as a top-pair defenseman or top-six right winger, but they’d need to clear space for his $5.2 million salary — and to be certain he’d re-sign, as he’s a pending unrestricted free agent.

St. James: Red Wings should look into Drouin trade

An intriguing situation has developed in Tampa Bay, one that should interest the Detroit Red Wings.

Jonathan Drouin, a top-three draft pick, wants out, and it’s worth it for the Wings to see whether they could land him.
