perplexing to say the least...that is some emotion to cross.
from game six photo to sharing a lockeroom.

marian will get to operate way, way in the background with the wings.

Now I'm really glad I didn't get a number 18 stitched on the back of that blank pens sweater I have.

Molinari may be prickly from the PG, but he's rarely inaccurate.

Detroit is simply the very best, post lockout franchise in the league.

The Wings had almost 10 Million in cap room to play with...so, they were easily able to get this dowb in financial terms...

If we lost him, at least we lost him to the best team in the league...

We now need to focus on Orpik and some forwards....

Wow, as I said in another thread, this one is going to sting for a long time. Time to move on and get something done with the remaining guys, but thank you Hossa for leaving a terrible taste in my mouth on this one.

I could see Hossa letting Shero know first, and Mr. Molinari's sources
from there.

Still a lot of options:

Naslund/Jagr/Huselius/Demitra/Satan/Avery/Bertuzzi need to sign at least 2 of them...
