    Before he got injured in 08 he was leading the league in points too, you could probably argue he was up there for the best player in the league.

    A little bit doom and gloom around the Sens board lately so I decided to look up Alfie and see what was going on. He had 2 interviews relatively recently, 1 about the late Bryan Murray and other hockey related topics and another about tennis match. Interesting to see he's been more active as of late. (here's a link https://ottawa.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1187395)

    One day I would love for the Sens to be sold and Alfie be hired as President of Hockey Ops, it would fit far to well.

    A man can dream

    (btw I didn't know which thread to post in and this was the closest I could find Alfie related)

    Karlsson .. not close for me. I liked Alphie better as a leader but ... Karlsson is on another level talent wise.

    I'd argue that Hasek is more talented than Karlsson. Hasek was the best hockey player on the planet in the late 90's. Obviously, the Hasek the Sens got wasn't anywhere close to the Karlsson that played for the Senators since Hasek was past his prime.

    On the ice, I take Karlsson over Alfredsson. It's hard to judge anything beyond that because I am not in the room.

    Ugh Hasek. If it wasn't for that lockout, and the Olympics . . . that was when the Senators had their best shot.

    That and the loss to Jersey in the conference finals . . . two most bitter memories as a sens fan.

    Literally the definition of our 07 cup run. I felt like Alfy did everything that year to win... 1 man wrecking crew.

    To answer the question, its Alfy. Karlsson is a close 2nd and Stone is 3rd (just wish the latter 2 had longer Sens careers to compare........)

    It's still Karl and it's not close.

    No way is Stone top 3 or even top 5. He has never in his life been as good as the versions of Spezza, Chara, Hossa, Yashin, or Heatley that played for Ottawa. Stone is more like Redden level, which is good, but we're talking about top 10 scorers and guys who got major award consideration.
