This is assuming Ottawa cannot overcome the Spezza/Karlsson/Cowen injuries.
He wont be traded and its due to building trust among players. Asking Alfie to waive his NMC and be traded to get some picks or whatever is not sending the right message to its players.

Leafs found this out clearly with Mats Sundin.

Alfie would have to WANT to get traded and for him to want to do that......would mean he doesnt want to play in Ottawa anymore. Its a catch 22 situation.

He wants to be traded for one chance to win ..........what? One playoff round? Two?

Then what does he do?

Hes already won the presidents trophy. Already been in the finals. He has a gold medal. His number is already retired , he just has to stop playing.

I bet he would rather retire than play for another team. Same with Jarome Iginla.

Iggy will sign a 3 year deal , and Alfie will probably sign 1 year deals until he cant hack it anymore.
