This evening's crop of Red Wings-related news reflects this afternoon's crop thereof: we've got some Daniel Alfredsson Senators fall-out talk and some Wings roster discussion. Let's start with the Alfredsson stuff this time. We know that Senators fans are more than a bit pissed off by the way the divorce went down, and the fact that it's incredibly evident that more than money was involved (never mind the "perception of worth" or "lowballing") in the souring of a relationship whose lines of communication seemed to fray, and that's completely understandable. I'm not the kind of person that rubbernecks and gawks at car accidents (frankly, it's dangerous as much as anything else), and I don't want to come off as someone who's taking glee in another team's loss--I mean, imagine a Cup ring-less Nicklas Lidstrom saying, "I don't think the Wings can win a Cup, going to Chicago, seeya," and you start getting a...

Because we needed to know right booking now…The Senators may or may not retire #11

Ugh. This story just popped up on the wires, via RedWingsFeed, and I'm starting to think that Red Wings fans are going to get incredibly tired of the Ottawa media's seeming desire to rub as much salt in the, "Daniel Alfredsson defected to the Red Wings" wound as humanly possible...In maybe five days, never mind by August or September. The Ottawa Sun's Don Brennan...

Detroit Red Wings rejoin NHL's offensive elite

The addition of Stephen Weiss and Daniel Alfredsson could move Detroit’s offense back toward the NHL’s elite.The pieces should fit together nicely. Weiss is a natural center who slides in behind No. 1 pivotman Pavel Datsyuk. The Red Wings used the since-departed Valtteri Filppula at center so that Zetterberg could play on Datsyuk’s wing.Unfortunately, Filppula struggled in...

Daniel Alfredsson, What Are You doing?

Honest Question

Are you happy with today? I was, but then a moment of reflecting upon our acquisitions and non-acquisitions made me see the light. We lost Damien Brunner and Valtteri Filppula to free agency. We gained Stephen Weiss-not-VVeiss and Daniel Alfredsson. So what? If we remove context, and someone says to me, seemingly out of the blue on any other day, that the Detroit Red Wings will...
