Senators Need To Keep Alfredsson

from Chris Stevenson of the Ottawa Sun,

Alfredsson’s expiry date has become a topic because his contract expires at the end of this season.

There are three option years attached to the deal with this kicker: as revealed in the Sun, if Alfredsson plays 70 games and gets at least 70 points this season, he has the option to accept $3.8 million (all terms US) for next season or declare himself an unrestricted free agent.

If he doesn’t hit the 70-70 combo, the Senators have him for $3.8 million, a bargain. But the Senators certainly don’t want to run the risk of having their captain become a free agent.

Talks between Senators general manager Bryan Murray and J.P. Barry, Alfredsson’s agent, are in the preliminary stages.
