Bryan Murray On The Alfredsson Rumors

from Ian Mendes of Sportsnet,

Bryan Murray doesn’t understand all the commotion surrounding Daniel Alfredsson.

From the general manager’s perspective, he doesn’t buy into the speculation that the captain of the Ottawa Senators will be moving on to another team via free agency this week.

“I guess it’s the big issue in town. I didn’t realize it was that big an issue because we’re going to get it done, I assume,” Murray said on Thursday.

In the past 48 hours, stories have circulated that other teams are targeting Alfredsson as a potential free agent.

Several teams — including the Boston Bruins and San Jose Sharks — have reportedly held discussions with Alfredsson since teams are now allowed to negotiate with unrestricted free agents.

Daniel Alfredsson stated some time ago that there will be a 18th and final season in the NHL for him and he still hunting a Stanley Cup ring in his collection.
Most (or?) suggests that Alfredsson will sign a new contract with Ottawa shortly but in an interview with GT hour before the window tells him that he has an open mind and are ready to listen to all the commandments.

- Now I have not talked to my agent today, but we assume that more clubs will hear of it, says Alfredsson to GT. 
Alfredsson confirms that there are ongoing discussions with Ottawa about an extension. 
- First State is negotiating with Ottawa then we will see what becomes of it.
