Alfredsson On The Wings And Olympics

from Sport Bladet (rough translation),

You changed the club after eighteen seasons in the summer and went from Ottawa to Detroit, and has now played half the regular season there. How do you think it went?

- There was some difficulty at first, but then it got better and better.And it was important to know that I played me to a place in this squad, I do not only with the old credentials and it feels, I've been in the competition and took a seat.

They (Sweden) talked a lot at the press conference that you may have a specific role, especially in the power play, and maybe not as much ice time as you are used to. How do you feel about that?

- We have not talked in great depth about it, but yes, I play a lot of powerplay with "Zata" and Kronwall here in Detroit, and it has gone well.What I then get the role and ice time in general ... it's a bit like that, I can assert myself in the competition and will do my best to get to play as much as possible. I do not go there and just pleased to be in place.

You have been in the Olympics both gone really well and when it became less successful and should know what it takes to achieve success?

- It is clearly to be at its best at the right times. We have to be on top in finals matches, then just. And I have high hopes of this team, we have many players who are both talented and have experience at the highest level .. Such as "Zata" and Kronwall comes in with superb leadership.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
