Alfie should sign an 11 year deal.

We'll have more older prospects arriving and we can add an UFA this offseason. Why not? Let's just win the cup with Alfie.

There are also other factors too. When you're 39, the amount of time and effort you have to put into the offseason so you can prepare for the rigors of a 82 game season is extremely trying. Also keep in mind that he has four children and he might feel that this could be the perfect season to end with - leading a team picked by "experts" to finish dead last into the playoffs (potentially), being captain of the All-star team, finishing around 70 points (hopefully!). Some athletes would love to go out on top.

Considering the yr he is having he might just come back for the last yr of his contract but if he does I would expect that Melnyk will buyout & renegotiate his deal to at least what he makes this yr. I hope he comes back it, would be good to see him play with the two swedes coming over next season.

There is always the possibility of trading him to a team that may have a better shot at winning the cup than Ottawa. I can only really think of the Bruins or Vancouver or Detroit right now but with Ottawa playing so well it`s hard to imagine him leaving or being traded. He may want to go out on a high but it`s winning cups that matter rather than a good regular season, nobody remembers good regular seasons they remember cups. This team has become very entertaining on the ice & very interesting off the ice to talk about.

This is awesome, and count me on board the 'One more year' chant train. I think with the way this season's gone, it's pretty much a given that Alfie is not going anywhere by the deadline.

As for the salary issue, we all know that what he makes if he plays next year means nothing to him. He and his family are set for life (and then some). He only cares about feeling good and the team being competitive. Alfie is one hell of a role model.

I may be wrong, but I don't think you can instantly renegotiate a contract with a player you just bought out.

"Contracts can be bought out for two-thirds of the remaining value for players over the age of 26, and one-third of the remaining value for players under 26. Players who are bought out cannot return to the old team for at least one year."
