Alfie to not return to the Sens for his potentially last season in the NHL. Guess he wants to go the Mats Sundin route, come back after hinting at he was done only to leave his career team for a stanley cup contender and end up not winning it anyways.
Cheer up, it got a whole lot better when Murray replaced him with MacArthur and Ryan. Especially since the only real roster asset it cost them was Silfverberg.
Personally I don't think the Wings have a better chance than the Sens at a cup this season. Alfie could have just signed a cheap 2.5m deal or something, cause Ottawa looks scary now. Not sure they're contenders yet, but I don't think any teams are going to see them as pushovers. Hell if Anderson maintains his level of play (big if) I'd be downright terrified of a healthy Sens team.
If we can keep a healthy team, which Spezza should be and Karlsson returns to his form prior to injury (his playoff performance this year was not overly impressive) Ottawa may stand a chance of making it at least to the conference finals for 2013-2014 season.
