Speculation over Daniel Alfredsson’s future, the latest on two promising Flames prospects, and an update on the Canadiens search for a general manager.


Will Alfredsson return for one more season?

OTTAWA SUN: Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson said his four children would love if he returned with the club for another season, as they enjoy being part of the team. He has one year remaining on his contract but hasn’t given a timetable for a decision. His teammates are also urging him to return.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: I might be wrong, but I get the feeling Alfredsson will return to play out his final season.

CALGARY SUN: Flames prospects Sven Baertschi and Lauren Brossoit had fine seasons with their WHL teams, giving Flames fans some hope for the future.

LA PRESSE: Francois Gagnon reports the Canadiens have contacted NBC hockey analyst Pierre McGuire regarding their vacant GM position.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Just think, if McGuire gets the job, every player he acquires via the draft, trade or free agency will be a MONSTER! 😉
