In Topic: Fedorov back on the wings?

27 February 2008 - 06:33 PM

Feds had his first interview as a capital and some reporter asked him if he was surprised to be trated..he said no but he said he was surprised he went to washington. Then he mentioned that everyone was telling him that he was going to end up in detroit and his response to that was Sure I'll be glad.

God he thought he was going to be in motorcity again lol..it'll come feds it'll come this summer.

heres the press conference it's after the 9th minute.

They'll do so without Jiri Novotny, who gets a game off to rest his shoulder. C Sergei Fedorov will not play tonight, but all signs point to him playing in St. Louis on Sunday.

The buzz in Detroit is that Fedorov is on his way to the Red Wings at the trade deadline. Scott Howson spent half of the morning skate in conversation with Wings' GM Ken Holland and assistant GM Jim Nill. At one point, they'll all three let out a hearty laugh. Maybe Howson asked for Pavel Datsyuk.

Anyway, it's a little premature to say that Fedorov is on his way to Detroit. It wouldn't shock me, but I don't think he'll be moved until right before the deadline. We shall see.

No way that is all it would take. Is Detroit even really looking at Feds? wink.gif



apparently they are

On a Detroit radio show just now, they were interviewing Kevin Allen of USA Today who said the Wings are going to make a pitch for Fedorov.

One other name comes to mind when you say Forward/Defenseman...


Dustin Byfuglien.

Quincey for Byfuglien?



I really don't think Chicago would give him up

Yes, that's pretty much what happened. Of course the club is allowed to change its mind about the terms of the deal and as for Sergei's "word" on the exact events, that's all he said, she said as far as i'm concerned. There was an offer, the Wings for whatever reason decided to cut one year off of it. That was their right. As for why Sergei would go to Anaheim for the same amount over a 5 year period versus 4 makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Why would you do something for 5 years when you could do it for 4 years and the same amount of dough? Something doesn't add up. Sergei said it himself, its a business and frankly, that wasn't a very savvy business move. He should've accepted the offer. He'd have been one of the top paid players in the game for the next 4 seasons and the entire history would've been rewritten. Was he so angered by losing 1 year that he couldn't get over it and decided taking a worse offer from Anaheim was the right move? If he understands the business side and he wanted to stay in Detroit then he would've signed that 4 year deal. The whole Fedorov wanted to stay but we forced him out argument is bulls*** in my mind because he had a sweet honey of a deal sitting right there and he took a worse deal to move to Anaheim. Nobody pushed him out the door. He may have felt like second fiddle to Yzerman and he may have felt like he got screwed by the Wings taking a year off the deal but the deal was still better than the Anaheim deal, so why bolt for Cali? Answer: He wanted out of Detroit. At least that's what I think.


He wanted a long term contract. The longer the better because he knew that this contract was probably going to be his last and he wanted a 5 year deal. That's it that's all there's nothing to understand out of it..what's the big deal for Holland to not give him that extra year..it goes both ways so it wasn't completely sergei's fault
