No doubt. I think I heard it on TSN. James Duthie was talking to Alfredsson about Pop Tarts or something. And he was just joking around and popped the question. Alfredsson gave a response... but to see the headlines, "Alfredsson guarantees Stanley Cup" is just ridiculous.

Alfredsson never said they'd win the Cup this season. I think he just meant that the Cup will be won by this group of players, whether its this year, or 3 years down the road. I think it was a complete over-exaggeration. I was watching OTR, and people were holding it against Alfredsson that he guaranteed the Cup, when they were talking about his character (after he tossed the broken stick)
