I wonder what teams were interested. Yzerman the GM so he's definitely familiar with Filppula

I'd take Weiss for 4.9 over Flip for 5 flat. Though I think it could be argued its a lateral move when its all said and done, I think the change of scenery for both players will do them good.

I kept this thread because people had already posted in this one about the signing, but for future reference:

Don't ever post an Eklund rumor in this forum. They belong in the rumors forum.

Second, any threads regarding signings need legitimate confirmation from a reputable source.

i think this is an upgrade for detroit. they get weiss for slightyl less than what flip ended up getting, and weiss has been a slightly better scorer over his career (.52ppg vs .6ppg) which will be an upgrade. and of course the anecdotal evidence would say that weiss will be much better at scoring playing with the top 6 detroit has when you are out there with 13 and 40 creating space. weiss is only 1 year older so not a huge deal.

At least Yzerman got him. We'll see him in our division quite a bit and it'll be weird seeing him in blue but it was obvious he wanted out of Detroit.

Makes perfect sense from Yzerman's standpoint. He's already familiar with Fil, and he just lost a center in Vinny Lecavalier. Looks like we'll be seeing a lot of Filp now in our new division! Bring it on!

As far as I know an E5 is not , nor has ever been considered a "rumor."

I apologize.
