For now, it’s a rumor, but Sergei Fedorov *could* lace up his skates for CSKA Moscow one last time | The Malik Report

I wouldn't mind Zidlicky or Hainsey. But the Wings won't sign a defenseman. They like the 8 they already have under contract.

We're not rebuilding though. Winning it all next year. You can take that to the bank right now.
