I frankly don't get that view. Even if he said I'm leaving for more money he should be respected for what he's done. Plus he's already said it straight out it was a selfish decision, so that can hardly be news almost two months later.

Alfie has played in Ottawa for nothing but bargains. He's close to a career point per game player and has earned on average about $3.5M/year. In eight years of salary cap, his cap hit was always below $5M. I can't even begin to imagine how much money he's brought to that franchise, rather than the other way around.

So to say he's greedy now, just because he wanted a new challenge and to play with some other veteran Swedes(that IS a factor), I'm not buying it. Sorry it didn't follow the sentimental plan, it rarely does in sports.
