The Datsyuk stuff is disappointing, so is Weiss' news. However I read in the mlive article that Samuelsson is on IR after sustaining an injury in GR, so that gives us even more flexibility going forward.
The rumor I heard down at the Van Andle is that he went home to Sweden. Not sure what will happen with him and his contract. I can't see him walking away from all that money but it would be nice to free up more cap space.
