LF'ers -- I also asked this on the Senators board, but....
Did Alfredsson recently guarantee--in print or via electronic media--that Senators would win the Cup this year.
If so, and you could send along the URL, I'd like to see it.
he didn't guarantee that they'd win this year- he guaranteed that they'd WIN IT. so basically, he's saying that during the tenure of this CORE that they have now, eventually they will win. i don't have a link, but remember reading the story on either SLAM HOCKEY, or TSN
The way I understood it was that he guaranteed a cup victory in response to a question. Much like the "would you consider retirement Joe?" I don't think Alfredsson ever said WHEN they'd win. I'm not 100% sure but I believe I saw a clip on this on tsn.ca A/V page.
