Thursday, 40-year old forward Daniel Alredsson narrowed his list of potential teams down to three, the Ottawa Senators, Boston Bruins and the Detroit Red Wings.
Initially it was being reported that the longtime Ottawa Senator wouldn’t make his decision until free agency began today and early reports out of Ottawa are indicating that things aren’t looking good for an Ottawa return. In fact according to Sportsnet out of Canada, the Red Wings look to be the front runners for his services.

Last season the right winger scored 10 goals, 16 assists and had 26 points in the lockout shortened season for Ottawa. Prior to that Alfredsson has been a consistent 20+ goal scorer and would certainly provide that right handed shot the Wings are currently seeking.
The Wings also have a few of their own free agents set to hit...
