Now this is interesting.

 

@RealKyper: Early indication this morn is Alfredsson #Senators doesn't look very good at all and a real possibly he may move. #RedWings frontrunners
 
Not a huge fan of this.

 

It's official the Detroit Red Wings have signed Daniel Alfredsson.

 

 

 

Must just be a verbal agreement since he can't sign until after 12

 

 

That's a false account. Handle actually reads "McKenLze".

I'm actually kind of excited about this. While he's not in his prime and we could you a bigger threat. A short contract with alfie could allow a nice buffer while the young guns come into their own. We still need one more acquisition though

Nice catch, I completely missed that.

I'm pumped if this happens. One year deal, risk free. The guy can still play, can come up big in the playoffs. Perfect one year hold over until some of the youngins are ready to step up into a top 6 role.

fake Bob Mck.  They superimposed his verification check-mark on their their twitter background.  Nothing official yet.

As a one year stop gap, two at most, I am ok with this.

He will do well on Dats Wing (IF Bob Mc is right), and is a proven commodity giving the Wings the ability to split Dats and Z.

 

It also give Tatar Anderson Nyquist another year or so to fine tune their chemistry and skill.

 

I would like to see:

 

Abby Dats Alfie

Brunner Z Mule

Tatar Anderson Nyquist

Miller Helm/Emmerton Eaves/Tootoo

 

Not the best line up the Wings have ever Iced, but I have also seen worse!

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

I'm fine with Alfredsson, as long as it doesn't stop the Wings from still pursuing that second line center.

If this move is combined with say just bringing Cleary back as well, then not nearly as content.

I don't think it makes any sense whatsoever.  I try to defend Holland as much as possible, but signing a 40 year old Swede...I'm dumbfounded.  I also don't like signing other team's icons.  He's a Senator.  Modano was a Star.  Even the Ray Bourque thing left a bad taste.  Just not what the Wings need at this point.  Not to mention he has orange curly hair and wears a girly headband.

Not the biggest fan of this idea, but here's what I do like about it: if he comes here, it'll be for one reason and one reason only, and that is to win an effing Cup - and this season.

@DarrenDreger: I firmly believe Alfredsson is leaving Ottawa. I believe Sens are aware of this. I also believe Detroit is the frontrunner. #TSN
