07:26 AM ET 07.09 | Has Daniel Alfredsson done enough over the course of his career to see his No. 11 raised to the rafters at Canadian Tire Centre? Of course, right? "We'll see," Senators president/CEO Cyril Leeder said Monday. "I'm not going to prejudge that now. That's an announcement that should come at a different point in time." How about the front office or management job with the team that was said to be waiting for Alfredsson when he decided to quit playing? Does the offer owner Eugene Melnyk publicly made remain on the table? "I think that's still to be determined," said Leeder. "I don't think that was a foregone conclusion, that Daniel was going to come and work for the organization. I know that had been talked about by a number of people."

Gotta agree with Otis and BG. Retiring Alfie's number is for after he retires completely.

I'm on board with Otis, BG Dave, Rex and Spiny. Danny.....not so much.

Ottawa should have signed Matt Cooke to kill Alfie.

You're taking it too far. Cutting his Achilles tendon's enough. :-)

"I can tell you this: all those things you mentioned, we definitely will not be doing them for Dany Heatley."

It may be too early to discuss it......but it's going to happen. Front office job? Not so sure.
