"When you do it every day for a couple of weeks we'll see how it feels," Alfredsson said. "Make sure it holds up and it's not just feeling good for a little bit and then you're in and out all year long. That's not what anybody wants.

"Every day it's been progressing good. As we push more and more it's going to be more telling."

Alfredsson will decide before the team leaves for training camp in Traverse City on Sept. 17 (on ice starting the 19th).

"If Alfie tells me he can't play hockey, my decision has been made," general manager Ken Holland said. "If Alfie tells me he feels great, and he wants to play hockey then we have to sit down and talk.

"He wants to play. He wants to be fair to the Detroit Red Wings. And he wants to put himself through an everyday test that starts this week."
