Alfredsson Speaks Out On The Lockout

from Ken Warren of Senators Extra,

Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson had some choice words for NHL owners Wednesday.

“Like everybody else, I’m disappointed that the owners chose to have this tactic from the very beginning,” Alfredsson told The Citizen. “They chose to give a low-ball offer from the get-go. It was kind of clear what they wanted and I don’t see anything changing anytime soon.”

In a normal NHL world, Alfredsson would be leading the Senators against the Canadiens at Montreal’s Bell Centre in the season opener Thursday, hoping to build upon the momentum that led to the team’s surprise playoff berth last spring. Instead, NHL players are spread out around the world, awaiting for a resolution in the lockout.

The Senators captain says he’s “past being frustrated,” believing that the NHL had a lockout in mind from the start of negotiations towards a new collective bargaining agreement.
