It Will Be Daniel Alfredsson’s Night In Ottawa

from Andrew Duffy of the Ottawa Citizen,

As a draft-eligible junior in Sweden, he was so little regarded that he was passed over by every team in the NHL. It wasn’t until he was 22 years old and a forward in the Swedish Elite League that the Ottawa Senators plucked him out of the sixth round, 133rd overall. He was — like everyone else chosen so late in the 1994 draft — a gamble, a long shot, a hunch.

“We liked what we saw, but he was a little undersized,” remembers then Senators GM Randy Sexton. “It was no slam dunk that he was going to play in the NHL.”

Alfredsson will retire Thursday with more NHL goals (444) and more points (1,157) than anyone else selected in that year’s draft.

Even more improbably, this quiet, private man from Gothenburg, Sweden will retire as the most beloved hockey player in the modern history of the Ottawa Senators: an icon in a city still coming to terms with its Alfie obsession.

The Fading Ottawa Senators

from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen,

They’re now fifth in the chase for a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, allowing Toronto, Florida and Washington to all leapfrog past them in the past couple of weeks.

For all the Senators fans laughing when Nashville spanked Toronto 9-2 on Nov. 18, the Maple Leafs have since strung together a 4-0 record.

The Senators, meanwhile, are licking their wounds following their lost weekend here, which included a 4-1 defeat to Tampa Bay Saturday and a 3-2 loss to Florida Friday.

And what’s staring them in the face? An away-and-home series against the New York Islanders, who have just completed an 11-3-0 November to remember. That will be followed by a trip to face Metro Division-leading Pittsburgh Saturday and a home game against Pacific Division leading Vancouver Sunday.

No More Excuses For Paul MacLean

from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen,

The coach also took a not-so-subtle shot at his leadership group for the sloppy performance in Friday’s 3-2 loss to Florida and the overall inconsistency during the current road trip.

“Preparation,” he said. “Leadership and preparation. Getting prepared to play the game in the National Hockey League. There’s no gimme games. You have to be prepared to work and play and if you’re not prepared to compete … the biggest thing for me was our competition level against St. Louis was where it had to be against a very good team.

“Our competition level against Detroit and against Florida was not near good enough. That’s what we have to get rid of in our game. The excuse of being young or the excuse of being on the road, or the excuse of it being a tough building, or this and that … we’re not interested in excuses. We’re interested in results.”

While In Motown, Bryan Murray And Daniel Alfredsson Go For A Spin

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Bryan Murray went for a car ride with an old pal Monday in Detroit.

Former Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson invited Murray along for a little ride about town, allowing the two to catch up.

"I ran into him today and he asked me what I was doing and he said, 'Let’s go for a drive.' It was nice," the Senators GM told ESPN.com Monday ahead of his team’s game against the Red Wings.

Just goes to show that despite Alfredsson’s dramatic exit from Ottawa before signing with the Detroit Red Wings in the summer of 2013, time heals all wounds.

Evening Line- Elliotte Friedman on Daniel Alfredsson

I wouldn’t call us friends, but there aren’t many athletes with whom I’ve had a better professional, working relationship. When speaking to kids or doing question-and-answer sessions, you get asked who the best guys are to deal with. He was always on my list.

-Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet on Daniel Alfredsson.  Read more on Alfredsson from Friedman.
