Good Afternoon!

Well it appears Detroit is in a pickle. Datsyuk's contract apparently does not have an out clause, which means he will play all season in Russia. His russian deal is apparently worth 6 million a season, which is more than Detroit was offering. DiPietro has signed a one year deal worth 2.5 million. This is a little odd, as he is their franchise goalie. Even so, I don't believe he'll be traded. I am still hearing Zetterberg has signed a multi year deal worth 2.5 million with Detroit, but it has yet to be officially announced. Damphousse has officially retired.

Still no decision for Bondra. I expect the Wings to jump in this race. Still hearing the Flyers, Thrashers, Devils, Leafs and Capitals are all somewhat interested in the veteran winger. Orpik is rumoured to be close to re-signing with Pittsburgh. All for now, more to come
