We're talking about Daniel Alfredsson here, not Jaromir Jagr...

To those asking about money - still a chance they offer him an extension with a signing bonus to get more cash in his pocket this year.

I am pumped about his return though!

Beautiful news, and what a beauty for coming back for 1M.

I don't think there's many fan bases who love a player as much as we do.

Our top 6 just went from pathetic to questionable!

Silfverberg Spezza Michalek
Latendresse Turris Alfredsson *Latendresse replaced with Regin if he ends up sucking

Could be worse!

What's just as cool is Alfie seems open to the idea of coming back next year if things go well.

"I won't say this is my last year."

"I'll play out this year and take it from there."

Maybe he does the Selanne thing. Take it a year at a time, playing into his hundreds, because he's still effective.

Then you know nothing about Alfie. Money means nothing to him, and loyalty means everything. This is the same player that was the first to step up and voluntarily renegotiate his contract and defer his salary when our team was on the verge of bankruptcy.

Alfie = Deity .
