It’s hard to imagine Daniel Alfredsson playing for anyone but the Ottawa Senators, but it sounds like the Bruins are going to at least look into seeing if Alfredsson would like to play for another team.
The 40-year-old informed the Senators last week that he would be returning for the 2013-14 season. However, Alfredsson is set to become an unrestricted free agent on Friday when free agency begins. When that happens, he’d be free to sign elsewhere, a notion that terrifies Senators fans everywhere. One potential landing spot? Boston, reportedly.
ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun and the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch both reported Wednesday that Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli has interest in Alfredsson. According to the reports (both via Twitter), the B’s reached out to Alfredsson’s camp already.
Chiarelli, who conducted a pre-free agency conference call with reporters Wednesday morning, wouldn’t comment directly when asked about any potential interest in Alfredsson. The Bruins’ interest ...

It’s purely speculation at this point, but in his latest 30 Thoughts blog over at CBC.ca, Elliotte Friedman puts the following out there:
23. Most bizarre story: Can there seriously be an issue between Daniel Alfredsson and the Ottawa Senators? Can you imagine Boston -- now in need a right-winger -- even being able to bid because this gets to Friday?

Eugene Melnyk's finances have entered public crosshairs over the past couple of months. The Ottawa Senators' inability to sign Daniel Alfredsson prior to the opening of unrestricted free agency negotiations is only fanning the flames. Boston's already placed a few timely phone calls, and could make a formal offer to the Swedish...
Daniel Alfredsson and Mikhail Grabovski were added to the mix of free agents linked to the Red Wings on Thursday, although nothing has really changed as far as Detroits acquisitions wish list is concerned.
Stephen Weiss continues to be the Wings' top priority, as well as trying to hammer out agreements with Daniel Cleary and Damien Brunner.
The Wings are also interested in...

Interesting tidbit from the Ottawa Citizen's Ken Warren about Ottawa's internal cap in their summer to-do list for Bryan Murray: it's apparently at or around $50M, which doesn't really leave the team a ton of room to operate after Daniel Alfredsson's extension. The 6th Sens had a nice little write-up on this.
With pressures mounting on the Senators to re-sign one prominent and impending unrestricted free agent (UFA), the Senators made a splash today by inking… Nathan Lawson to a one-year, two-way contract.
I suppose under normal circumstances, it would be reassuring to see the organization retain a goaltender who not only has NHL experience but some familiarity with the...
Paul MacLean, the NHL's coach of the year, has signed a three-year extension with the Ottawa Senators.
MacLean won the Jack Adams Award this past season as the league's top coach after leading the injury-riddled Senators to a 25-17-6 record after the NHL lockout.

Lawson started his career as a hockey player at the Olds Grizzlys, where he was active from 2001-04 in the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

In what was supposed to be a press conference to reveal head coach (ahem and 2013 Jack Adams Award winner) Paul MacLean’s new three year contract extension, the occasion was hijacked by the ‘uncertain’ status of negotiations taking place between Daniel Alfredsson and GM Bryan Murray.
Without even waiting for anyone to question why the organization had come to terms with...
