Milstein posted a video of Dastyuk chopping wood -- Pavel Datsyuks morning workout and family breakfast at the cottage.

I still believe hes spending most of his time trying to catch the big one.
Is Pavel Datsyuk returning to Red Wings a real possibility?
DETROIT Rumors of Pavel Datsyuk returning the NHL have been getting louder and louder this year. That's because his contract, which the Red Wings traded to the Arizona Coyotes in 2016, is about to expire this summer. Under Ken Holland, there had been discussion of a possible return to DET for next season. If he does decide to return to the NHL, it would have to be with the Red Wings . Newly-named Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman, who now faces a rebuilding project, could have another tough decision to make soon about someone also beloved by the fanbase.
