If I had to make a guess I think he stays and retires with the Senators. If he did want to go to a contender, I think Vancouver would be a really nice fit. He then gets to play with some of the best Swedish players right now, the Sedins and Edler, for a very solid chance at a cup.
See Ray Bourque. Ive never been left to believe that Alfredsson was a guy that valued a cup over being loyal. A cup would solidify his career. A cherry on top. He might not come out and say that but I think deep down that's were his.heart lies. Hes too proud to admit he.wants a.cup publicly.
