Alfredsson and Sens Reach Deal

The Ottawa Senators and Daniel Alfredsson have reached a deal that will keep the captain in a Senators’ uniform for the rest of his career.The deal has a length of 5 years, worth 32 million dollars along with a 7.5 million dollar signing bonus. It also includes options that could extend the deal to 8 years at close to 50 million dollars.

This is great news for the Senators and their fans. It shows that new owner, Eugene Melnyk, is commited to winning now and in the future. Last year, this deal would not have been able to be done, but the Senators organisation is finally financially stable. Now they can keep the likes of Hossa, Havlat, Chara, Redden, etc in Ottawa for a long time.
