Jason Williams has officially returned to the dark side:
The Red Wings have added a second forward to their roster this week with the signing of veteran right wing Jason Williams.
Williams joins Patrick Eaves -- who also signed a one-year free agency deal with the Red Wings on Tuesday -- as veteran forwards brought in to potentially be counted on to file the roles of departed wingers Mikael Samuelsson (Vancouver) and Jiri Hudler (Moscow Dynamo).
Williams, 28, spent the first six seasons of his NHL career with the Red Wings, scoring 49 goals with 67 assists during that time. He was traded to Chicago for forward Kyle Calder at the 2006-07 trade deadline.
The Preds may be Vader but the Wings have the patent to the Emperor all to themselves. Heck he even looks kinda like Babcock -- just needs a stick of gum.
I hate to see this one unfold as the Jackets and Williams really were a good match last season. He seems like a good guy who genuinely enjoyed his time in union blue. Unfortunately the numbers didn't add up for him to stay.
Williams had to do what was best for his career which I get and apparently that is signing again with that evil red empire.
It pains me to say this but may the force not be with you.
