With the way the Wings are playing right now, the alumni showdown sounds much more appealing!

Probably at some point. I believe NHL Network shows it either the day of or the next. Not remembering exactly.

He's righting all the ships. He's going to play in a CSKA jersey and a Red Wings jersey this year. I feel like all is right with the world.

I've long been more excited for the Alumni game(s) than the actual WC itself. This certainly furthers my excitement, for sure.

Anyone else think Feds today can contribute more than a good portion of what we have now on the roster (namely Franzen)?


Busting out my Fedorov jersey today for this wondeful news :D

Me too!

 

I for one was pretty upset how things went down between Feds, and Holland (mostly pissed at Fedorov), but I must admit - he'll always be a Detroit Red Wing in my mind, and I'm looking forward to his return...Hoping the crowd will give him a standing ovation.

Some awesome news! So many legends are gonna be on this alumni team. If only they could play more than just one game. I'm gonna have to break out the old dvd's and watch some of the old games to reminisce. Although I'm still hoping and wishing that a certain Captain Stevie gets announced as well. Doesn't hurt to dream I guess.

...as folks have stated, let the healing begin! (although I never turned on him like some.)

 

This is the first step in #91 getting put up next to #5 where it belongs! No matter what the argument ,the Red Wings of the 90's and early 00's are not the winners they were without Lids or Feds! They both belong in the rafters.

 

 

...anyhow, having Feds, and Igor there on the ice will be awesome! Is Fetisov planning on playing? All that leaves is coaxing Kozlov there and we will be set, because you ALL know Vladdy will make an appearance on the ice in some shape or form!

It makes me sad that "kids" these days (quotation marks because I guess I could count as a kid) have no conception of how obscenely good this guy was, how complete a player he was. I mean, you can say that about any great player of the past, but I think Feds is sort of special because he's really not that far removed from The Modern Era at all. (He's only, what, 43?) Put another way, Feds in his prime could probably still dominate in today's NHL. And, really, exceedingly few players in the history of the game have been the kind of complete package he became.

Correct. Pretty sure each game is featuring an entirely different roster for both teams tho.

Excellent news.  Let the rehabilitation begin.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I keep coming back into this thread to see if this is real life. And then I smile and squeal like a fangirl.

BoS Fedorov Fact #1: I slept with the Nike White Russian poster above my bed for 6 years. I ripped it down the day I found out he left the Wings. I later regretted that decision, and bought another one on eBay. It has remained rolled up in a poster tube in my old closet at my mom's house since that time.
