There is no way Ottawa does not maximize the return for him. Paul Freakin' Gaustad cost a 1st round pick last year at the deadline.
I know its a late pick, but if Alfie decides on Boston, then it wont matter what anyone else offers. I think Sens will go with Alfie's choice and try to get the most out of that team. And Boston is a contender with familiar faces like Chia, Chara and Kelly. Just my opinion.
