Could The Bruins ‘Steal’ Alfredsson From The Senators?

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

The Boston Bruins have reached out to captain Daniel Alfredsson to gauge his interest in going to Beantown when the unrestricted free agent market opens Friday at noon, league sources confirmed to the Ottawa Sun.

Speaking on a conference call with reporters Wednesday morning, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli wouldn’t speak specifically about the club’s 40-year-old captain but confirmed Boston is looking to rebuild its right side.

He also said he feels it could be a good destination for an older player looking for a chance to win a Stanley Cup.

Talks between the Senators and Alfredsson’s agent J.P. Barry are continuing Wednesday to try to get a deal done. If the club doesn’t have a contract in place by Friday at noon it will be the first time in Alfredsson’s career he will be allowed to test the market.

Alfredsson’s camp has made it clear he wants to return to Ottawa but the two sides have to decide what his market value is to make a deal. Listening to Chiarelli, a former Ottawa assistant GM, the Senators could have competition.

Yeah, sure.  Have a Fils for next to nothing while you’re at it, Jacobs.

If Alfie leaves Ottawa, it will be because he’s hoping to win a cup elsewhere. That’s a choice that’s always been his to make, and while I don’t think anyone could begrudge him making it now, I think he probably would have made it already if that was his biggest motivation.

As far as money is concnerned, I don’t think there is any team in the league that values Alfie more than Ottawa.
