TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. - New Detroit Red Wings forward Stephen Weiss says the franchise's perpetual contender status was a big reason he decided to come to Detroit.

The Red Wings opened training camp Thursday in Traverse City, Mich.

Detroit signed Daniel Alfredsson and Weiss and extended Pavel Datsyuk's deal, giving the franchise a better chance to have success as it shifts to the Eastern Conference this season. The Wings also re-signed veteran forward Danny Cleary on Thursday, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal for $1.75 million.

With established veteran stars like Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg already in the fold, the Red Wings aim to improve their offence from a year ago, when they struggled to score.
