It was Daniel ****ing Alfredsson. He was worth it to us, especially considering he had just played for $1 million the previous year. Look at the massive ****storm of bad PR that was created because of it. Signing him would have been worth it just to avoid that. It makes the org look like complete ****, and conversely it would make us look infinitely better had we shown loyalty and paid him for all he had done for the franchise. Look at what San Jose is doing with Jumbo. Whatever he's getting paid, he's worth it to them just to have around. It was the same as us with Alfie, except Eugene Melnyk is a ****ing idiot.
