I’m not buying any of these conspiracy theories about Daniel Alfredsson and his decision on whether to play again or not.
I don’t think he’s looking for more money or another year. I don’t think it is in any way tied in with the Senators next promotional campaign. In fact, I think he’s already made up his mind.
Bryan Murray wouldn’t sound as optimistic as he did over a recent conversation he had with Alfredsson if he didn’t know No. 11 will be back for more.
I just think that Alfredsson, along with the rest of the world, is waiting to decide when there will be more to come back to.
Why should he say he’s going to play if the current CBA negotiations turn into another work stoppage/lockout/strike?
I believe just as soon as the league makes an announcement, so will Alfredsson.
If the former is positive, so will be the latter.
Oh, and welcome back Bobby.
Of course you weren’t blackballed. Me and the other moderators were just slow in getting to the pending comments.
