NHL Free Agency 2013

Chance to chase Cup leads Alfredsson to Red Wings

Friday, 07.05.2013 / 6:35 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Daniel Alfredsson may be down to his final chance to win his first Stanley Cup championship. He's moving his family to Detroit to try to make it happen.

Alfredsson, the now former Ottawa Senators captain, signed a one-year contract reportedly worth $5.5 million with the Detroit Red Wings on Friday to chase what he called his dream with an organization that has won the Stanley Cup four times since he came into the NHL in 1995.

Alfredsson was the longest-serving captain in the NHL at 14 years and had spent his entire 17-season NHL career in Ottawa, going to the Stanley Cup Playoffs 14 times and the Stanley Cup Final in 2007. He said it wasn't until he could start talking to other teams as a free agent earlier this week that he decided moving away from Canada's capital city would give him the best chance to win the Stanley Cup.

Emery excited about second chance in Philadelphia

Friday, 07.05.2013 / 6:15 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Ray Emery left Philadelphia with what he called "a funny taste in his mouth" after the 2009-10 season and saw the opportunity of free agency as a chance for a bit of redemption.

The Flyers on Friday signed the goaltender to a one-year, $1.65 million contract to return to Philadelphia, where he will compete for playing time with Steve Mason.

The move brings Emery back to a place where he spent 29 games during the 2009-10 season. That run ended in February when he sustained a hip injury that later was diagnosed as avascular necrosis and nearly ended his career. Surgery to repair the condition sidelined him for nearly a year.

"I left myself with a funny taste in my mouth with my experience there," Emery said on a conference call Friday. "I'm not saying it wasn't enjoyable, but that I really felt we could have done better, that I really could have done better than what was done there."
