They had not pursued him at all. This was all very unexpected for Ken Holland, it went very fast and that it had its foundation in a very lowball offer from the owner Melnyk regarding a one year extension in Ottawa that Alfredsson felt was basically humiliating. The price offered was based on the last year of Alfredssons contract that had just expired (real money - not cap hit). This was all very interesting stuff I thought.
I've heard the same story. Can't belive they treated him like that.
