He already said he doesn't want to play in the AHL anymore.
Unless the Wings sign him on as their #6 then he ain't coming back.
Maybe he can find a way on to the #7 spot if Lidstrom retires. Otherwise, as he cleared waivers would he really find it that easy to get a one-way contract with another team?
At any rate, we need him in Grand Rapids...Im sure we can find a way.
