from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,
Daniel Alfredsson may very well be the best all-around player in the NHL, but in collecting a salary of $4.338 million (all terms US), he’ll be just the fourth- highest-paid Senator this season….
“I’m not going to renegotiate my deal,” said Alfredsson, who shrugs at not being the highest-paid player in his dressing room. “That’s the way it goes. There’s a lot of facts that go into it. I signed before the lockout and took a 24% cut right away. I was part of the process, to do that deal. Both me and Billy Guerin thought about it, we both had just signed long-term deals ... you’re going to lose a lot of money ... and that’s a big part of it. You put another 24% more on my contract and it’s not a bad deal at all.
