Ha ha ha.

Gotta be Cleary negotiations ongoing as the reason.

Hopefully it's not cursed from Modano's stellar season here. (Not commenting on his play, his season was an unfortunate one)

Ugh. That number.

Yeah, I was hoping he would go a different direction. Oh well...

I agree that the still-potentially-up-in-the-air Cleary situation may be the hold up on Alfredsson.

I thought Tatar said earlier he wanted to switch to #90 from #21 for the Red Wings this season? Obviously Weiss would have the seniority factor between the two of them.

I'm fairly certain Cleary is coming back eventually, so Alfredsson may be rocking a new number.

Or IF Cleary comes back, he gets a nice payment for giving up the number.

Or if Cleary is signed after the season starts alfie will already have the number

from malik report :

Holland also sounded...Let's say a little conflicted, as I heard him speak with Savage...regarding Daniel Cleary's future with Detroit given that the Wings would need to both clear salary cap space and a spot off the 50-man roster to re-sign him:


"I don't know that it's done," Holland said. "We were just talking about it. We'd love to have him on the team. We think he's a versatile player. I made him an offer prior to free agency. He didn't think it was enough. If we wake up in the next two days and he's signed (by another team), I'd certainly understand. If he stays out there and he's available and we're able to do some things, then we might have something for him

I could have sworn I read somewhere this off season that Cleary already said if he comes back to the Wings, he will give up his #11 for Alfie. I'll see if I can find where I read that.

Sounds like a definite no

I wonder what the holdup is...I see Weiss has #90

what the heck is up with nobody wearing #15? I first thought Danny D would take it, but no. There has to be a good reason why nobody wears it...Weiss would look good in it too...better than 90.

They're prepping it for retirement the same night Lidstrom gets his retired :bye:

Pretty sure that Riley Sheahan wore #15 when he was up with the big club.
