Ottawa is more of a contender than any of the florida teams at this point. All the sens need to do is add one or two more people to the team and work on there offense troubles and they will be good to go.

Edit-Wow, i did not see that trololol at the bottom of the screen being that it was yellow and i just could not see it clearly on my computer screen. It shows up perfectly in the reply screen though.

I love alfie, have a poster of him outside my office.

But i ask you this:

Assuming he makes $5M (on the high end, but just assume), are the sens better off in 2013-14 with Alfie, or another $5M UFA ?

This question asks that you ignore the emotional angles, but fully factor in his leadership and influence on the young players.

I'm not sure i know the answer, but i do know that he will make a lot of $ that could be spent differently.

In my heart I knew he'd be back. But it's still so sweet to get the news!

I think he may opt for less money being that he wants to make a run for the cup again and he probably knows full well that the team needs to add at least one more player in order for that to happen.
To answer your question though. I think alfie does need to be on the team for one more season to coach the young players a little more. I also think that the team needs to add a ufa player to team. So since alfie is resigning, i hope the sens are still able to sign a ufa player onto the team.

Pay him as much as he wants. Alfie has the heart of this team. I'd be happy to have him five years from now, even if he's playing 5 minutes a game on the fourth line.

Can't wait until his four sons go a perfect season as our first PK line.

Am I the only one thinking it wouldn't be out of the question to see him take as little as a 3M per deal?

Alfie is the heart and soul of this team and most of the young players look up to him and still need his guidance/presence in order to develop. Having him on the team for one more year has no downside whatsoever. Not to mention that the organization owes him all the respect for what he's done for this team and city. This shouldn't even be in question if you ask me.

I am also thinking that. There are many reasons why i think he will take less money.

Actual serious question? So you're asking if we are better off with Alfie or, say, Clarkson, Bickell or Dupuis? Even Clarkson is probably going to make more than $5m. Maybe we can throw $6.5X5 to cheese-string shoulder Horton. Or add ANOTHER centre in Weiss at $6.

This team is better off with Alfie no matter the cost.

I'm am so freakin' happy. I knew he was coming back but couldn't bare handle it until it was official even if him retiring was just 5% chance.

This will be enormous in terms of additional development of our young swedish stars, his olympic chance AND a potential deep run.

Most importantly, we keep our Captain and see who is fit to carry his legacy when he does infact call it quits.

I love you, Alfie.

No, I could see him playing for $2M plus bonuses. He's done it before, doubt he really needs the money. Leave some space for more quality. Equally, also see Murray handing him a blank cheque.

Even if he gets a lot of $$$ (say, $6M) it would probably be for one year only anyway, so there's no downside. But yeah, he'll probably ask for less. Lots of interesting negotiation angles though: NTC? Asking for less but at the condition that a big FA is signed?

What are the next reachable milestones for him? Other than 1111 pots (coming very soon!), can't think of anything.

Alfie is currently 56th in all time scoring leaders with 1108 points and has a chance to jump to 49th passed Nick Lidstrom and Michel Goulet!! It would take a 40 point season to get this done.

A 58 point season would have him pass Bobby Hull for 48th and roughly a 70 point season would have him 47th passing Fedorov.

*note Thornton and Iginla are near Alfie in career points and could finish higher or lower than Alfie. The only solution is to trade for both of them and bench them
