Daniel Alfredssons season will not get started on time but the Detroit Red Wings wont rush him. According to the Detroit Free Press, the 41-year-old Alfredsson has not skated in 10 days and is not expected to be in attendance when training camp opens this week. Daniel had a strong summer training and was feeling great while skating here but suffered a setback on his fifth day of high intensity on ice sessions," Alfredssons agent J.P. Barry told TSN. "Its the same back issue he has been dealing with for a few years. He needs some time to let things settle and then determine whether his back is up to the rigors of another full season. He will be patient for now before making any decisions. "The setback is a little bigger than Alfie thought," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press on Monday. "I know he still wants to give himself every opportunity to see if his body will allow him to play. Were going to be patient — give him the time to make his decision. At this point, I dont expect him to be coming to camp." Alfredsson, who finished second on the team in scoring with 49 points last season, is an unrestricted free agent after leaving the Ottawa Senators to sign a one-year contract in Detroit. "I think I owe him the class and dignity to allow him to get to a point where we sit down and make a decision about his future," Holland added. "Whether we sign him to a contract or not will be based on feedback from his body. Before we even get there, we have to see if Alfies body is going to allow him to play. The Red Wings play their first pre-season game on September 22 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Nike Shoes From China .
