Williams Rejoins Wings
Posted August 06, 2009 - 10:11 AM
Williams broke into the NHL with the Red Wings in 2000 and was with the team until a 2007 trade that sent him to Chicago for Kyle Calder. Since then he has also spent time with the Atlanta Thrashers and the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Williams is the second forward the Wings have signed this week, joining Patrick Eaves, who signed a one-year deal on Tuesday.
In 376 career games, Williams has 85 goals and 120 assists.
Financial terms of the deal were not announced.

And there's also the fact that signing a known quantity in Williams takes away from some of the buzz of of the Eaves signing. Eaves is an unknown. An almost complete unknown given he's spent his entire career in the East, and it generated some chatter. Eaves is a project. Williams isn't controversial, isn't expected to do a ton, and his deal means the Wings aren't bringing in anyone else.
