Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

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

 

 

I did NOT favorite that tweet.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger 1m

Red Wings likely destination for Alfredsson, but clearly because of legalities no deal has been agreed to. On the wing with Zetterberg?

If he wanted a Cup so bad, he should have come here when we still had Nicklas Lidstrom. I still like the signing as long as we still get Grabo.

Hopefully we get Alfredsson and better yet I hope he convinces his countryman Nick Lidstrom to come back and join him.

Youth is overrated anyway. 40 year olds win you cups.

He's never gonna learn. Why Alfredsson? Pay extra for Brunner, roll with the kids, don't sign anyone for frig sakes, but please no more 40 year olds.

Please god no. Like seriously. The wings haven't made any significant UFA additions I have liked since Hossa. Can we stop with the old timers please?! I understand loyalty to our own UFAs to a point but taking a spot away from our youngsters for someone else's old guys is grinding my gears.


Too many vets come here as a last stop for retirement because the atmosphere is relaxing for them without a bunch of young guys amped up all the time. This isn't a retirement home - its the motherf***ing Detroit Red Wings. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Multiple sources suggesting Daniel Alfredsson not likely to return OTT. DET appears to be frontrunner. Stay tuned to see where this one goes

 

 

 

I can't say this was among the top moves I'd hoped Holland would make.  Will be interesting to see if it really happens.

Modano, Bertuzzi, Samuelsson, Alfredsson. Nope, starting to look like a retirement home. I just gotta hope Boston goes harder after him.

Per Darren Dreger, it sounds like Alfredsson will be on his way to Detroit. Informed the Sens last night. #TSN #NHL

When Alfredsson returns to play the Sens in Ottawa he's going to bet booed BADLY.

 

And for good reason.

 

How many times do we play the Sens 6 times?

Expectation is Alfredsson will go to DET. Since he's 35+ player, base salary likely in $3.5M range with bonuses taking it up to $5M total

Alfie = Modano/Sammy 2.0. This better be a 1 year deal or I s*** my pants.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?
