Surgery is probably best option we've got with Alfie:
1. If it works out - he can keep playing and we don't waste cap space.
2. If it doesn't - we can keep him on the LTIR and make use of the cap exception if necessary.

Worst case scenario is he gets healthy, then retires.

This is if the plan was to put him on LTIR in the last year from the beginning. If the plan was not to play the last year, THEN it's retarded to not have added 2 low pay years like a lot of player's contracts have.

However i don't believe that was part of the plan. I believe the plan is to play out the remaining years of his contract.
I didn't really make myself very clear previously, apologies i was at work and typing pretty quickly. I agree with you in that at time of contract signature the ideal plan was that Alfie would continue to play out the full contract. I do, however, believe that part of the plan took into consideration that there was a decent chance that he may not be able to play out the entire length of his contract. As such i think management had a belief that with alfie's health they could likely wriggle out of potential cap problem down the line via the LTIR. As such it was part of the plan, albeit, a broad plan.

I can't remember the environment with players signing front loaded long term contracts at the time of Alfie's extension. I checked when the investigation into Hossa and Pronger's contracts took place and it was the summer after Alfie's extension, for some reason i originality thought Alfie's extension came after and that would provide a logical reason into why they didn't add years. Obviously not.

Like i said I do still think that putting Alfie on LTIR in the last year of his contract was part of the broad plan

Alfie probably did the surgery himself with a pocket mirror, a rambo knife and some duct tape.

He'll be fine.

Ok got some news about Alfie's injury from his mom herself.

I met them today at my shop shopping, apparently his parents are here for a month or so. Alfie's new born actually turns 1 month today.

On Alfie, she said he can only move his head in certain ways, but she kind of worded it a bit differently so it could be a language barrier kind of thing where she was trying to say something else, but she did say they expect him to fully heal 100% in 4-6 weeks.

So yeah, met Alfie's parents today, turned a **** day into a decent one.

Imagine anyone thinking that a 38 year old player with a chronic back injury would retire...

You might want to at least wait until training camp before pulling the smug know it all routine.

We're talking about a man that laughs in the face of recovery time. He's probably going to be doing the surgery in his full hockey gear so he can get on the ice the second the surgery is over.
