Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun (via Toronto Sun):
The Sun spoke with league types in the last three days to see how likely it is Alfredsson will be moved. Here are some factors the Senators will have to weigh:
No. 1: Alfredsson’s salary is an attractive $1 million in the final year of his contract and that’s a bargain basement price for a player with his capabilities. But he still carries a $4.875-million cap hit because that’s the average annual value of the deal. That could be tough for a lot of teams to swallow.
No. 2: Since Alfredsson signed the extension after he turned 35, he will still be a cap hit even if he decides not to play next season.
