Would Alfredsson Accept a Trade to Boston?
To add to my previous post about the possibility of Iginla or Ryder the new name being linked to the Bruins is Ottawa veteran, Daniel Alfredsson.
Here's Pierre LeBurn's take on the situation:
But in the event the injury-riddled club can’t overcome its massive loss of talent, it certainly raises the the question: What lies in Alfredsson’s future? I can think of several contenders that would love to add him to the mix. Could Alfredsson be enticed to leave his one and only NHL club to take a shot at a first-ever Stanley Cup?
One team that I believe will show serious interest in Alfredsson, if and when the time is right, is the powerhouse Boston Bruins. With the trade of Tim Thomas’ contract, the B’s have lots of cap room to add pieces before the April 3 trade deadline. The connections, of course, are obvious: GM Peter Chiarelli used to work in Ottawa’s front office and B’s captain Zdeno Chara is a former teammate of Alfredsson...

Of the NHL goalies who have more than one game appearance, only two goalies have even-strength...
The Ottawa Senators’ injury woes continued as goaltender Craig Anderson left last night’s 3-2 win over the NY Rangers with a right ankle injury. Ben Bishop came on in relief and wound up giving up both goals in the third period before triumphing in a seven-round shootout. Anderson stopped all 21 shots he saw before leaving as Ottawa posted its third straight win.
Last spring, the Rangers and Senators played a grueling seven game series that at times got pretty nasty with Carl Hagelin injuring Daniel Alfredsson with a hit from behind and Chris Neil concussing Brian Boyle with a hit to the head.
Another hit that may still have repercussions is when Michael Del Zotto caught Neil with his head down behind the net in Game 4 and dropped him...
