Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli, who was familiar with the Super Swede from their days together with the Senators, heavily pursued the veteran winger and chose to sign Jarome Iginla when Alfredsson selected the Wings. Axelsson tried to push his old buddy Alfredsson towards Boston, the club couldn't compete with the kind of love he was getting from the host of Swedish players in Detroit.
While former Wings' great Nicklas Lidstrom had a discussion with Alfredsson, it was captain Henrik Zetterberg who pushed him over the top to choose the Wings and convinced him it would be right for his family.
There will be no rings this spring in Detroit.
This wasn't the finish Daniel Alfredsson would have scripted.
This next move is a big one for Alfredsson.
If he decides to retire then he accepts the fact that he's willing to hang up his skates without getting that elusive ring and comfortable with the fact closest he ever came was a trip to the Cup final with the Senators in 2007.
"It pretty much came down to a selfish decision in terms of I have not won a Stanley Cup," said Alfredsson on July 5, 2013.
After leaving Ottawa for chance at winning the Cup
Senators were officially eliminated from the picture last summer, the choice came down to either Detroit or Boston.
The Wings certainly went further than the Senators did this season. Detroit made the playoffs while Ottawa took a major step backwards after going two rounds last spring. In the end, Alfredsson's decision will be questioned.
Not only did the Wings fall short of Alfredsson's expectations when he signed there, they were also booted out of the playoffs by the other team that was chasing him when he made that fateful decision to leave Ottawa.
After 17 years with the Senators, the 41 year old Alfredsson was gone in a flash. Unable to get a deal, he headed for greener pastures with the Detroit Red Wings because he wanted to win a title before retirement.
The final buzzer sounded Saturday on the Wings' season and possibly Alfredsson's career when they were eliminated in Round 1 of the playoffs with 4 2 loss to the Boston Bruins in Game 5 at the TD Garden.
Generally speaking, Alfredsson goes through the same cycle every summer by taking some time off and then after some rest decides if he has what it takes to do the off season training to make his return.

Should he Michael Kors Belt Brown return next season then he'll have to decide if the Wings are indeed as close to a Cup as he maintained they were when he accepted a one year deal with the club last summer. Detroit didn't look like it this Hermes Belt New
By all accounts, Alfredsson's season with the Wings was successful. He was a solid contributer with 18 31 49 points in 68 games, but there were concerns when he missed Game 3 of the Boston series with a back issue.
It turns out the Wings played five more games than the Senators this season. Yes, Detroit extended its run to the playoffs to 23 straight seasons, but they were up against a team that appears headed for a long spring.
"The fire still has to burn," he told me more than once.
The thinking on Twitter after the Wings were sent packing is the Senators should make a pitch for Alfredsson and try to bring him back next season. He told reporters in Boston if he does return he is leaning towards the Wings.
It has been 295 days since the Senators captain put his legacy with the organization at risk when he chose Motown over Bytown but the memories of that day were stirred up Saturday after what happened in Beantown.
The reaction in Ottawa to the Wings being eliminated wasn't surprising: Many Senators fans were pleased to see Detroit get knocked out because there's still bitterness over Alfredsson's decision to leave.
"I feel with Ottawa, they're getting closer and closer and definitely going in the right direction and Armani Belts Price
The question everybody was left as Alfredsson shook hands with the Bruins was: What's next? He hasn't ruled out playing next season but wants time to make up his mind before informing the Wings if he'll play.
