Stephen Weiss looks like he’ll be the Detroit Red Wings’ new second-line center, with Valtteri Filppula headed out the door. Weiss and the Wings agreed to a five-year, $24.5-million deal on Friday, TSN reported. That’s an average of $4.9 million per season — or, slightly less than the $5 million per Filppula initially was believed to be seeking.
Filppula’s number still...
Well, former Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula got his money, and he gets the chance to replace Vincent Lecavalier...
As per @Real_ESPNLeBrun, Valteri Filppula agrees to 5 year deal for $5M per year with TB.

Filppula was one of a cluster of players in which Tampa had interest. Yzerman certainly knows him from...
It was all but a given that Valtteri Filppula had played his last game with the Detroit Red Wings, and now that’s official. Filppula signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning (and GM Steve Yzerman), multiple outlets reported.
The Red Wings had tried to get Filppula locked into a contract extension prior to this past season, then continued to chat with...
Okay, let's get down to brass tacks here.
1. The Red Wings swung and missed on Vincent Lecavalier. Why? He wanted five years and a no-trade clause, and he apparently has little concern for the concept that a team that has a shaky defense and no starting goaltender also has no cap space, barring trading Braydon Coburn and putting Chris Pronger on the LTIR, anyway, so what the...
Ottawa's a division rival. Hi. Ken Holland stole your captain.
Florida's a division rival. Hello. Ken Holland stole your co-captain.
Boston's a divsion favorite. Greetings. Ken Holland nabbed Daniel Alfredsson from under your noses.
And he might not be done yet. Continue reading "Eastern Conference? Meet Ken Holland, The Real Ken Holland"
As the Detroit Red Wings sit poised to add free-agent forward Daniel Alfredsson, they may have to bid farewell to Damien Brunner and Daniel Cleary. Both players, plus Valtteri Filppula, failed to reach agreements on new contracts with the Wings before noon Friday, making them unrestricted free agents.
Wednesday was the first day that NHL teams were allowed to contact other teams' unrestricted free agents, and the Detroit Red Wings started burning up the phone lines early trying to determine which players, if any, have an interest in coming to Detroit.
The Wings reached out to several players, but it appears their main targets are centers Stephen Weiss, Mike Riberio, and Matt...
It's not a big signing given the magnitude of what's happened today, but it's great for the Red Wings and great for someone who was a walk-on with the University of Michigan and a try-out who earned an AHL-only contract with the Grand Rapids Griffins:

Ken Holland and the Detroit Red Wings returned to the forefront of the league's free agency frenzy on Friday by addressing their needs for additional scoring help by acquiring RW Daniel Alfredsson and C Stephen Weiss. In addition to the expected promotion of Calder Cup Most Valuable Player Tomas Tatar to Detroit this fall on a full-time basis, it appears that trio will offset...
The Detroit Red Wings' annual summer development camp takes place from next Wednesday, July 9th, to Monday, July 15th. The Red Wings released a pre-draft preliminary roster for the camp, the Left Wing Lock's Sarah Lindenau listed the try-out invitees, and now the Left Wing Lock's posted the entire roster--though it's subject to change:
Announcing the #drwdc...
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...
The Detroit Red Wings have agreed to a one-year contract with Daniel Alfredsson.
Detroit got the deal done soon after NHL teams could sign free agents on Friday afternoon.
The 40-year-old Alfredsson scored 426 goals and had 1,108 points with the Ottawa Senators, who failed to keep their captain for at least another season. He won the Mark Messier Leadership Award after scoring...
On Friday, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Valtteri Filppula agreed to a deal that will pay the Finnish center $25 million over the course of five years and will carry a $5 million cap hit for the Winged Wheel. The 29 year-old just came off of a season that saw him score nine goals and seventeen points over the course [...]
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...
Making the rumored deal I posted earlier official. The Detroit Red Wings sign former Ottawa Senators captain, Daniel Alfredsson to a one year deal worth 3.5M. Alfredsson could make up to as much as 5.0M with different bonuses by the end of the season. Alfredsson, 40, has played his entire career in Ottawa and will now face him former team [...]
