Zetterberg signing announcement

The Red Wings will hold a press conference at 2 p.m. tomorrow presumably to announce a long-term contract signing by Henrik Zetterberg. With Zetterberg locked in for what could be a long-term deal (10 years) for a cap hit in the $7 million range, general manager Ken Holland can now turn his attention to the team's other potential free agents -- Marian Hossa, Johan Franzen, Jiri Hudler, Mikael Samuelsson among others.

Welcome back, Bruce! (long time no see!)

This is great deal for the future captain of the team. Let's hope his back is ok, moving forward.

Go Wings!

So glad to have you back, Bruce!

Now that Holland has signed Zetterberg for around a $6M cap hit, who do you think he is trying to sign next?

I'd love for it to be Hossa, but the play of Hudler and Franzen has been so good this year that I'd hate to see them walk as a consequence.

If only we could keep them all...
