    Truly a sad day in the Hockeytown area. Sergei was always one of my favorite players, and I actually met him in the Detroit Airport once...
  3. Things are going to be really tough for the Ducks next year because everyone is going to play against them like they are Stanley Cup finalists, not "doormats" like they have always been. After losing Kariya and Oates I figured Anaheim would be just like the 'Canes and miss the playoffs next year, but they could be pretty good with Fedorov in the lineup. Don't forget Prospal either, he isn't well known but he is a damn good player. He only had about 10 fewer points than Fedorov last year.

    Funny, Fedorov signed for $8M in Anaheim, but turned down $10M to play in Detroit. Must be personal reasons because I don't know what hockey player wouldn't want to play for the Red Wings.

    Huge Wings fan here:bassist: I think Feddy will be a better fit with Anaheim than he was in Hockeytown. I'm not saying he didn't do great things in Detroit, but he was an unhappy camper on many occasions in Detroit... mostly ice time issues. He's more of an individual player than a team player(imho) and playing with the Ducks should give him the ice time he wants... and deserves. He'll cherish being THE #1 star in Anaheim. Hopefully getting rid of Federov will also get rid of some of the controversy surrounding him every year so the Wings can concentrate on winning one more cup;)

    I'm a huge wings fan and I'm glad he's gone. He'll get everything he wants in Anaheim, and he'll be the only star. He'll also be playing in a very defense oriented system out in Anaheim, which I don't think will be best for him. Oh well, I never really cared for Sergei anyway, he either does very well, or not so well, and is very inconsistant.

    ...I'm mildly surprised he didn't end up with the Avalanche.
    I would take the league minimum to play there next year(even if I were a superstar).

    3 Cups and 1000 points,not a bad career:D
    Sergei's ok.He wants to be in LaLa land,he's a party guy.
    He's also 33,I bet he lasts no more than a season in Anaheim before they buy him out.
    As Europeans go,he's got some grit,but at that age with the type of competition in the NHL now you have to stay on top of your game.With all the distractions out there he's gonna fold.He ain't no Messier.
    He was a skilled player though,one of the best puckhandlers I've ever seen,who could skate AND shoot,wicked shot.
