Pavel Datsyuk could leave the Detroit Red Wings and return to play in Russia following this season, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

If Datsyuk does leave the NHL it would be due to family reasons. Neither Datsyuk nor the Red Wings are commenting on the situation. It is expected that Datsyuk, his management team and the Red Wings will sit down at the end of the season to discuss a final decision.

Datsyuk, who turns 38 in July, is still under contract with the Red Wings next season – he is slated to become an unrestricted free agent in 2017. Even if Datsyuk leaves, his $7.5-million salary cap hit would remain on Detroit’s books since he signed his latest contract after he turned 35.

That just doesn't seem fair. I understand why some of these rules are in place but the black and white interpretation seems unfair at times. I know it would be very difficult but discretionary enforcement on these types of things seems to be the most fair approach.
