A Stanley Cup ring is a shiny, mesmerizing thing. Alfredsson decided that with his time winding he had to make a drastic, bold move to take one last swipe at it.

Good luck to him. No matter what happens from here, his career will never be the same.

-Michael Grange of Sportsnet on Daniel Alfredsson leaving Ottawa to sign with Detroit.  More from Grange on Alfredsson.

The interview Alfredsson gave explaining his decision to leave Ottawa is one of the most honest, circumspect, realistic interviews I’ve ever seen from a professional athlete in my lifetime. I mean that.

It’s no wonder Canadian journos hated it…

Well, they did get some revenge…

The Senators are young and rising and made another big jump by adding Bobby Ryan in a trade from the Anaheim Ducks Friday, while the Red Wings are a talented yet aging team that are close to making their last stand.

And adding Alfie made them soooo much older it practicaly guarantees the Wings’ “last stand” will be fought by guys in walkers and wheel chairs. smile
