Despite the loss of six regular players Alfredsson believes that the Senators are currently in a very good position for a possible participation in the Stanley Cup series.
On the other hand, the many rumors of transactions that concern him have surfaced in recent weeks. There was even talk of the possibility of the Boston Bruins being the toughest team to acquire their services. Director General Bryan Murray had to speak to clarify some of the details in this case and he did not go through four paths to bring out the truth of this whole story.
