Fantasy Impact: Daniel Alfredsson has signed a one-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings.

Say it ain't so, Alfy. After spending his entire career in Ottawa, Alfredsson jumps ship to the Red Wings. The Wings have a better shot at the Cup than Ottawa, but by how much? Perhaps the Senators wanted to go in a different (see: younger) direction?


From Bruce Garrioch (I know, I know): Alfredsson told the Senators the decision was not based on money. He wants the chance to win a Stanley Cup before his career is over. #Sens.


Alfredsson had 26 points in 47 games last year, and he added another 10 points in 10 postseason games. He may not be a 103 point guy any more, but he can still play in the top six in any NHL city (and he will do exactly that in Detroit).
