Team(s) Interested: Ottawa Senators- The season just started 2 weeks ago, but it looks as though there will be frequent rumors linking the Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson in possible trades. The 38 year old has a $4.9 million cap hit for the next 2 seasons and this current deal could be his last. He has never won the Stanley Cup during his career (the farthest the Sens went with Alfie was the Cup final in 2007). The longtime Senators captain has been a fan favorite for years, but it may be time to end the relationship. A possible situation could be that Alfredsson, who doesn’t have a NTC, could request to be traded to a Cup contender, like Pittsburgh, just like Ray Bourque did about 10 years ago. A trade that could work well for both teams is Alfie and Sergei Gonchar for Paul Martin and James Neal or a 3rd round draft pick.


About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
