Senators post Daniel Alfredsson tribute video

Here's the Senators' tribute video to Red Wings forward Daniel Alfredsson:

Update: Here's a bit more from TSN:

Update: Per the Canadian Press's Stephen Whyno:

Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said in an interview with TSN that there was "no ill will" toward Alfredsson from the organization's perspective.

"I don't think there was ever any anger," he told TSN via satellite from Barbados. "It was more just basically the shock value of what transpired, and that eventually fades away and you just move on. We have a hockey team that we're putting together that we want to be a contender.

"It happens in professional sports, in every sport, and you just move on."

Melnyk declined comment when asked if Alfredsson would be considered for a job with the Senators after his playing career was over, citing that he didn't want to violate league tampering rules. He expressed some openness to the idea of retiring Alfredsson's No. 11 someday.

"There's no question he's probably the most prominent person in the organization in (the) modern-day Ottawa Senators," Melnyk said. "It's not a gimme, but I can tell you what, if I was a betting man, I would bet on it."
