What is up with all the crying? It will be a one year deal that won't handcuff the team going forward. If we had Alfie's production in this past playoff run we probably beat Chicago. If anything it would give the Wings someone to win it for, assuming the right pieces come together
12 games into the season Alfie will be out with a season/career ending injury for us - this is how these things go. See Modano and Sammy. We just hand out retirement cheques here.
