Sounds good, but Alfie's contract was front loaded, and that's why he played for 1 million last year.

Alfie may be a union guy in your opinion, but he was slammed internally by the Union for taking less.

And the SENS were stupid enough to not give him an extension on his contract, so they lost him.

I hope no one on this site is ignorant enough to boo him when Detroit comes to town Dec.01

And if you do, I hope someone walks right up to you and gives you a thumping! It'll be like the kiss cam, with everyone clapping!

Respectfully disagree. I am going to "Aflie Alfie" my heart out in every game that he plays in Ottawa. If I have to choose between Alfie and MacArthur I choose Alfie, if I have to choose between Alfie and Ryan, it gets harder...but Ryan has no record of playoff performance, no record of leadership, no record of anything...so yeah, Alfie for now and Ryan future.

Also, how else are people going to send a message of dissatisfaction to management over this? Maybe if Murray and Melnyk are gutpunched enough they'll realise that keeping your franchise players is kinda important. If it helps Spezza/Ryan/Zibanejad/etc. stay here then it will be worth a few boos.
