Back to Alfredsson practicing with the Senators, Brendan Savage mentioned this in an article about Helm:

I know it's a different situation with Alfredsson, but in general I don't think it's as big of deal to the players having former teammates work out together.  Wonder what jersey Flip wore? 

 

Saw something earlier that he actually had his Wings gear on

I can't help but wonder why Kesler doesn't stay in Vancouver year round. This region is amazing in the summertime.

I'm sure he has his reasons. Maybe he just wants some peace and quiet from the fans and media.

being a michigan native, he might just miss it at home.. wonder how much (if at all) kesler wants to play in detroit.

Can you imagine how the young guys on our team must feel about this? I mean in the positive sense. Like, suddenly, Hey, Daniel Alfredsson's on your team! O RLY?

So that's also pretty much an official no to Cleary coming back, right?

It sure seems that way. I think it was all but official when Samuelsson couldn't get bought out, though. That would have obviously at least created a path for Cleary's possible return.

Here's another shot of Alfie:

Simple, Vancouver has an imense amount of scrutiny during the season so I think players might prefer some quiet months with their loved ones. I don't blame him one bit for that, Vancouver is a very tough market for every hockeyplayer.

Yeah like I said in my second paragraph there.

And especially when you consider Keslers personality. He was so guarded and secret about his return even though the doctors had cleared him. He was actually kind of a **** about the whole thing.

I guess I can see him wanting to get out of town, no matter which town he is playing in.

Ansar Khan @AnsarKhanMLive 

Babcock said Datsyuk will play with Zetterberg and Weiss will play with Franzen. Hasn't decided other wingers on top two lines.

 

Babcock hasn't decided if Alfredsson will play with 13/40 or Weiss/Franzen. Said Abdelkader could be on top-2 line or 3rd line with Helm.

 

Babcock said Alfredsson will play the right point, alongside Kronwall, on top PP unit.

 

 

 

deserves an own thread?

I lean towards wanting to see 40/13/11 & 93/90/14 myself

Has to be music to the ears of some to see that Abs might play on that 3rd line.

Personally, I'd like to see 93/90/21 on that 2nd line. Mule might not be a goal scorer, but Tatar sure is. Only issue there is that he'll be up for a deal after this season.

Fixed.  I think the kid will be a consistent 55-65 point guy int he NHL when he's in his prome but he hasn't proven anything yet


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!
