Fil opts for salary arbitration, will return

Forward Valtteri Filppula filed for salary arbitration and will thus remain with the Red Wings. The restricted free agent cannot accept an offer sheet from another team now.

Filppula was a $698,039 salary-cap hit last season. The Red Wings have just under $3.5 million of cap space under which Filppula and one other forward's salary must fit.

Then there's next season when Marian Hossa, Henrik Zetterberg, Johan Franzen Mikael Samuelsson, Jiri Hudler and Tomas Kopecky all become free agents.

I fear the 2009 off-season is going to be stressful. I trust Holland though.
