It would be more like the Bourque situation. They would trade him *IF* he asked them to. I don't think Alfredsson will ask. But in the scenario where he felt like he wanted to go out with a Stanley Cup ring, then the Sens probably honour him so much that they'd actually go along with his wishes, even in the face of any PR backlash (although Sens fans too might be ok with it).
