from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Ales Hemsky's stay with the Senators was likely short and not so sweet because he may not be back in an Ottawa uniform next season.
League sources told the Sun Tuesday talks between the Senators and Hemsky's camp have broken off and unless there is a change of heart on his part he's expected to test the UFA market on July 1.
The 30-year-old Senators winger, acquired from the Edmonton Oilers at the deadline in exchange for two draft picks, was believed to be looking for a deal in excess of $5.5 million per-season from the club.
Sources say the Senators were not prepared to make that kind of offer and there was also concerns he's determined to test the market."
