Quick Hits: Red Wings' Prospect Tournament Schedule

Red Wings News

Weighing the pros and cons of the Detroit Red Wings re-signing Daniel Alfredsson (with poll) | MLive.com
The biggest pro with re-signing Alfredsson is that he co-led the team in points last season. He will probably not hit that mark this year, but he will certainly contribute a significant amount of points. Enough points to warrant his roster spot. The con is that he does take up a roster spot, which could be given to a player like Tomas Jurco, and that the Wings only have a little over $5 million in cap space, with DeKeyser still unsigned.
