Reasons Why Alfredsson Could Retire

from Ian Mendes of Sportsnet,

Let me preface this blog entry by saying I really don’t want Daniel Alfredsson to retire. He’s an absolute pleasure to deal with on a daily basis and after watching him score 27 goals this season, it’s clear that he can still play this game at a high level.

But we need to acknowledge that Thursday night could mark Daniel Alfredsson’s final regular season home game at Scotiabank Place. The fans have realized this, and once again, they are planning to chant “Alfie!, Alfie!” at the 11-minute mark of each period against the Boston Bruins.

While the prevailing hope amongst Senators fans is that their captain will return for one more season, here are five reasons why it might be a good time for Alfredsson to retire this summer:

No. 1—The Perfect Season

Nobody could have scripted this season to go any better for Alfredsson and the Ottawa Senators. They’ve been one of the feel-good stories in the NHL, so wouldn’t this be a great way for Alfredsson to go out?
