Okay, it wasn't the Enzo (which is yellow and cost him $650,000) that Sergei crashed. It was his "burgundy Ferrari," as the Free Press calls it (can't even get the real name of the car, great reporting guys). From the tiny picture in the paper, it looks like it could be a 456M GT/GTA. I can't tell for sure. So the accident wasn't quite as big a deal as it could have been. Sergei was turning on Woodward to go north using the Bloomfield Parkway crossover at about 2:55 AM. The police said there was no indication that alcohol was involved and no charges were filed. He was coming home from the big birthday party he threw for his mother. The Free Press says Sergei is torn over the contract dispute. Fedorov, you'd feel so much better if you would just take a pen and sign that contract. If you do that, you won't be betraying the millions of Red Wings fans out there and you won't be leaving the area you love so much. Plus, you'd have a real good shot at winning the Cup again, which is more than you could say if you sign with New York or LA. Unless you go to Colorado (you better not!) or Toronto, you'll be taking a huge step down. Right after the Wings were eliminated Brendan Shanahan and Chris Chelios asked Sergei to stay with the Wings. It's nice to know that some of the bigger stars still have loyalty to the team, even if others don't. The Freep also has sort of a draft preview that tries to encourage us, even though the Wings only have really late picks this year. The only thing that encourages me is the fact that hardly any of the Wings' core was drafted early. The only pick the Wings have today is #64, at the end of the day, probably a short time before 4:00 ET, when the draft ends for the day.
