Something Bruin? – B’s reaching out to Alfredsson
For Ottawa’s hockey fans it is downright unfathomable to consider Daniel Alfredsson wearing any other jersey than the Senators’, but Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli isn’t letting that get in the way of trying to make it a reality.
TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN reported today that Chiarelli – a former Senators executive himself – reached out to Alfredsson’s camp and spoke with them “at great length” in hopes of luring the pending agent to Boston for the coming season.
Chiarelli was believed to be interested in acquiring Alfredsson at the 2013 NHL Trade Deadline, but the Senators – still in the playoff hunt at the time – did not opt to move their franchise face.
The 2012-13 season marked the final one for the 40-year-old Alfredsson on a four-year deal he signed prior to 2009-10 worth an annual average value of $4.875 million. His 2012-13 salary was $1 million.
