On the players he watches in the NHL:
Ovechkin or Kovalchuk but there's so many, I like younger guys, it's me same, it's very young. It's tough to play NHL.

On watching Datsyuk for the first time in his hometown: Yeah, it's first time, he's not player in the NHL, it's before play NHL, he played for the same team I would play for.
