They think it was more of a "you send me an offer" "no, you send me an offer" "okay, forget it."

Murray said as much yesterday that he hasn't made an offer.

This entire ordeal has made me regret ever becoming a hockey fan.

It wasn't worth it for this.....

I wish Alfie had just retired

Nothing makes sense anymore

You have a city who loves you, 20 000 people chanting your name, 14 years, longest serving captain. Why? Why now?

They said here is the blank cheque.....you fill in the rest....I would say that's an offer, maybe not an official number, but they said name your price.

Yes he will, because of Murray's inability to resign a 41 year old veteran who was close to retiring, Murray will be fired on the spot.

I'm not at all upset with Alfie. I suspect he's insulted because Melnyk won't spend to the cap to give him one last shot at a Cup.

Should be an interesting day. If we sign Clarkson and swing a trade for Kane I'll be ecstatic. If we do nothing I wouldn't expect to make the playoffs.

Fan outrage is always loudest than what you've done.

I don't want him back. If we're a top team, I don't want to trade for him.

If he retires and he wants a job somewhere, we shouldn't offer him one.

It's like buying a car. If you discuss the price and then decide you don't want to buy it, there was no contract offer. Doesn't mean they didn't talk.

Gives him two shots at changing teams for a cup. If it doesn't work out and Detroit do not do well next year, he will be dealt to a contender.

If this happens, I will puke.

Worst of it is, he'd been ringing the retirement bell last little bit... and said playing with the kids on the team brought the spark back...

Now turns away like this?

I can't believe that there wasn't a 'What's the best offer you got, we'll match it' conversation... Especially since reports were that they'd agreed on a single year contract.

Ok........

He literally just Sundin'd us. I don't know if I will respect him anymore. Not only did we lose a very solid player, we lost a huuuuuuuuuuuge part of our leadership in the dressing room, mentoring for our countless rookies, and even more. I would not be surprised to see us fail to reach expectations next season if we don't sign anyone. Losing a top 6 F and a top 4 D who played like a Norris contender is rough, not to mention when they're both vets with a huge presence off-ice on a team full of youngsters.

Go Sens.....

We are a rudderless ship now. Gonchar and Alfie were a huge part of our success.

I think we all need to postpone the trip to the cliff/bridge/suicide factory, at least until we actually hear from Alfredssson & Murray. There's way too much unsubstantiated talk going around right now about "what actually happened".

People with the "Murray needs to be fired" lines should probably calm down and hear the whole story before passing judgement like that.
