  • Report: Alfie is done

    Three weeks shy of his 42nd birthday, Daniel Alfredsson's comeback bid is about to end.

    Sources tell The Dreger Report that Alfredsson has decided not to play this season and while the Red Wings have been informed he is likely done, they have not heard directly from Alfredsson.

    Alfredsson has been plagued by an injured disc in his back over the past few years, a lingering problem that he is able to manage off ice, but is continually aggravated by the wear and tear of game action.

    The veteran forward, regarded as one of the NHL's most respected leaders, earned his place among the game's top two-way forwards based on a relentless work ethic combined with a creativity that produced 444 goals and 713 assists for a total of 1,157 points in 1,246 NHL games.

            I'm grateful to all of the players who have made the Sens successful in the past. Some dudes just know how to burn the hell out of a bridge.

            LIVE IN THE NOW!

              Sucks to see him go out like this. He'll be remembered as Ottawa's best player ever...probably until Karlsson leads the team to success. He'll also likely be remembered as the best captain in Ottawa history for a long time.

              Hopefully he signs a one day deal in Ottawa.

                Retiring just a year earlier would have been much better but meh.

                  Elliotte Friedman wrote a great piece of Alfie.

                  - Alfie told him in 2007, between the Sabres and Ducks, if the Sens won the Cup he'd retire. He's still not sure if Alfie was being serious, or testing his ability of trust for Elliotte.
                  - Had a great relationship with Alfie; he agreed to do interviews with Elliotte despite not technically being made available during pretty upsetting times. After Cup loss/after Pomminville goal.
                  - In 2010 Alfie was learning management assets for hope of a future job

                          Was wondering what Mendes would have to say about this. Thanks for posting!

                            Not a big fan of one day deals. I think it would suffice to make the announcement at/before a Sens-Wings game.

                              A sad day for hockey. What a beauty. Hopefully Karlsson learned some things from him about being a great captain.
