Datsyuk Makes Justin Braun Wish He Was a Part of the Braun Family Business

Of course, Braun is now owned by Procter & Gamble and so San Jose Sharks defenseman Justin Braun couldn't go back to Germany and make razors even if he wanted to after being embarrassed by Detroit Red Wing Pavel Datsyuk last night. His actually being from Minnesota might also have something to do with that.

Then again, there's no shame in being beat by a wily veteran who tallied three points total (the goal and two assists) in Detroit's 5-3 win on Tuesday. For his part, Braun had an assist and now has three points (all helpers) in his three games with the Sharks. He may just very well end up being this year's Jason Demers (out with an upper-body injury), who was last year's Marc-Edouard Vlasic, who had done his best emulating the original one-year-wonder in San Jose, Matt Carle in 2006-2007, who is actually doing relatively well playing for the Philadelphia Flyers right now after a short-lived nightmare of a stint in Tampa Bay.

The lesson in all of this is this: Braun needs to get the hell out of San Jose as soon as possible, preferably on his way to Philadelphia, whose state of Pennsylvania coincidentally has a huge German population. The other lesson: Datsyuk eats rookie defensemen for breakfast.
