An interesting UFA tidbit from Khan

Added to the bottom of MLive’s Ansar Khan’s story about the Wings’ signing of Valtteri Filppula:

The Red Wings were interested in Corey Perry on a one-year deal but he signed with Dallas. They kicked the tires on former Red Wing Gustav Nyquist but weren’t even in the ballpark with their offer of two years at $4.5 million per season. He signed a four-year deal with Columbus for $5.5 million per season.

I have been blogging about the Red Wings since 2006, when MLive hired me to work their SlapShots blog, and I joined Kukla's Korner in 2011 as The Malik Report. I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.
