10:41 AM ET 09.01 | Like everyone else Paul MacLean was surprised by Daniel Alfredsson's decision to sign with the Detroit Red Wings, but the Ottawa Senators head coach says it's time to move forward. "I was disappointed like everybody," MacLean said Friday afternoon. "At the same time Daniel's earned the right to make that decision and he's made it and moved on and we're moving on. We're going to progress without him." MacLean believes the Senators have enough leadership within its current group of players to fill any void left behind by Alfredsson's absence. "It's a great opportunity for a number of our players to step into that leadership void and show they can be a bigger part of the team than maybe they've been in the past," MacLean said. "It's not just one guy that's going to step up, one guy will represent as Daniel did with the captaincy, but leadership isn't just a one person thing or a three person thing it's an everybody thing. With me it's everybody and that's still going to be the expectation."

I'm too old for that lifestyle as well shipper. If I pulled an all nighter now, I'd pay for it for 3 days!

One would think your excited to have Lin....I mean another Swede or something. Great player, and wish him and the Wings luck. That's one team I have never been able to dislike...... Maybe Stevie Y or Greg Stefan perhaps was the reason, and then there was that guy who fought.......ummmm.....Probation! I mean Probert! Loved him! Then I liked when the team was pro Jewish, as they were very Kocur! :) best I got after an eve with the older lady and some message oil....I always want a sandwich! Must be the beef scented lotion!
