He could be one of the most interesting names changing hands this season and I have to believe the Senators maximize the return.
Maybe, but that was in the Sinden era. Maybe Alfie would remain a good soldier to the end and let the Sens maximize their return, but in these PC days, if Alfie decides on Boston, there wouldn't be much the Sens could do about it without looking bad.
