Found July 09, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post, "He wants to keep playing," Hejduk's agent, Jiri Crha said Monday in a phone interview. "If there is any team that really wants to use him for his offensive skills, he still believes he could do it." The Avs, however, don't appear to be interested. Hejduk, 37, is an unrestricted free agent and Crha said the Avs have informed him he is not in their plans. "They are very honest about their different plans. They don't believe he can play in their top six of forwards," Crha said. "We just saw a player (Daniel Alfredsson in Ottawa) who left after 17 years with the same team. That's the reality of the hockey life." Hejduk scored only four goals and 11 points in 29 games with the Avs last season, sometimes being a healthy scratch or playing on the third and fourth line.

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...

Ottawa Senators reload after Daniel Alfredsson's exit

Daniel Alfredsson, What Are You doing?

Last week, the lifetime Ottawa Senator, Daniel Alfredsson signed with the Detroit Red Wings, prolonging his already lengthy 17-year career.  Alfredsson was drafted in the 1994 NHL draft by the Senators during the sixth round.  He has been the captain of Ottawa since 1999, yet walked away from the city that embraced him in the twilight of his career, rather questionably. Photo...

Contract Talk For The 35 Year-Old And Over Player

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, Daniel Alfredsson and Jarome Iginla are not as popular as they once were in their long-time NHL homes, but each made a nice gesture when signing with a new employer. For all of the comparisons that have been made between the once-iconic captains, one that slipped through the cracks last week was the unique team-friendly deals they each agreed...

The Detroit Sports Show: Daniel Alfredsson, Josh Smith and What’s Next

It’s been a busy start to free agency for both the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons. The Wings made a huge splash, landing former Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson and versatile center Stephen Weiss, while bidding farewell to Valtteri Filppula and Damien Brunner. And the Pistons used a huge chunk of their available change to bring in Josh Smith, then re-signed Will Bynum...

Which players should the Red Wings move before the season...

All Don Cherry

Last week, Grande Prairie Daily Herald Tribune Editor-in-Chief Paul Ouellette had a chance to sit down with legendary coach and TV personality Don Cherry and get his thoughts on some hot topics in the world of hockey.

Red Wings evening news: ‘old’ Wings, Hall-of-Famers, prospects and grades

Most of this evening's Red Wings-related news (and given my travel commitments, this may be the overnight report, folks) touches upon topics that you and I've discussed during the mid-day post and overnight report (as well as the releasing of the Wings' summer development camp roster), but I had to laugh when I read the Wall Street Journal's Mike Sielski suggest that...
