When Reds and I had Alfredsson last year I asked around on the Senators board about him playing the point. Here are some of the responses I got...

Quote:
All of 02-03, 03-04 and 05-06... rarely otherwise.
Quote:
He played the point on the power play a lot back in the Jacques Martin days. Consistently our PP had Hossa-Bonk-Havlat up front with Redden & Alfie on the point. Since the lockout he has mostly played up front and I don't think he played the point at all this season with Gonchar & Karlsson manning those spots.
Quote:
Him and Redden were godly together back in the day. He must have score 10+ from the point back in 05-06.
In response to the above...
Quote:
His 48 PP points along would have made him 17th in scoring among D-men.

Also, those 3 years were the best our PP has ever been. Not sure that it ever cracked the Top-10 otherwise.
