    Default Alfie to the Red Wings

    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I would imagine that there's a lot of disappointed Sen fans right now.

    Does he think it's 1997? They ain't winning the cup next year. Must be a "play with my fellow Swedes" thing.

    With a shift to the East, they actually have a pretty good shot of going deep. They will be one of the few teams that actually plays defense in the East.

    besides, until the horn sounds ending their season, you NEVER count the Red Wings out. Mike Babcock is one of the best, if not the best, coaches in the league.

    Brian Murray: "I can say this: I'm disappointed," Murray told The Sun after hearing what was said at the news conference. "It seems Alfie isn't totally informed of what went on. That had to do with J.P. - didn't tell me the truth during the week. He kept saying 'I can't get in touch with Alfie. I will get back to you with a number.'

    "He never got back to me. I never heard back from him after the phone call on Tuesday (July 2). Alfie called me himself on Thursday night to tell me that he was leaving. I said to J.P. during the earlier conversations I can't pay you $7 million. That's what they asked for for the year.

    "I offered $4.5 million. I said, 'Both of us hopefully are flexible and we will talk.' (Barry) said he would get back to me. I just took for granted that would happen and it never happened. I never heard back. I have not J.P. since the $7 milliion (demand in New York) Saturday meeting we had. It was $12 million for two years and $7 million for one. That's disappointing."
