I think this qualifies as "holy shit" news: the Red Wings have agreed to a contract with former Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson. We're waiting on details, but it sounds like it's going to be a 1-year deal worth $3.5M with bonuses and whatnot. After 17 seasons in Ottawa he has decided to move on, but we'll leave the speculating of that up to our Ottawa friends.

This likely means that Dan Cleary is gone, as Alfie should take his spot on the wing. This also means that either Damien Brunner gets re-signed or the Wings go after another forward to take his place. All of that is still up in the air.
