Daniel Alfredsson Signs With Detroit
Daniel Alfredsson will not return to the Senators next season, sources tell the Ottawa Suns Bruce Garrioch.
If true, its a shocking report, considering Alfredsson is (was?) the Sens captain and has never played for another team during his 1,000-plus-game career.
An unrestricted free agent, the 40-year-olds choice is apparently down to Detroit or Boston.
Definitely worth noting at this point: yesterday, the Ottawa Citizen published a detailed story on Eugene Melnyk that suggested the Sens owner isnt close to as rich as he used to be.
