Samuelsson ‘extremely’ disappointed he can’t get in Wings’ lineup | Red Wings Front
I don't know what to say. Personally, I have always liked Sammy. That is partially because he's Swedish, but also because he's really not a bad player. No, I would never have given him the contract he was given, but remember, hindsight is 20/20.

There's also this:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Wings GM Ken Holland said Sheahan won&#39;t be making trip to Florida with team.</p>&mdash; Chuck Pleiness (@wingsfrontman) <a href="https://twitter.com/wingsfrontman/statuses/416600673631756288">December 27, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Let's Go Red Wings!
