INSIDER TRADING: COULD THE SENATORS MOVE ALFREDSSON?
If the Ottawa Senators slide in the absence of both Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson, what should they do in regards to the future of captain Daniel Alfredsson?
LeBrun: It’s going to be really sensitive for sure. There has been no player as popular in the history of the Senators. Senators GM Bryan Murray can’t control other teams calling him and that’s going to happen if the Senators fall off because of those injuries.
I believe one of the teams that will pursue Alfredsson very seriously are the Boston Bruins, who have some cap room after trading Tim Thomas. There are some obvious connections in Boston with Zdeno Chara – Alfredsson’s former teammate from Ottawa – and general manager Peter Chiarelli who worked in Ottawa.”
