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.

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?
