07:48 AM ET 11.28 | When Daniel Alfredsson returns on Sunday, he'll bring with him a welcome development in Ottawa -- a sold-out building -- one that will help somewhat with the team's bottom line, but another revenue stream looms. The NHL's colossal new $5.2 billion broadcast deal with Rogers, which begins next season, will dramatically increase revenues for all teams, including the Senators. ... That said, [Eugene Melnyk] maintains that spending money on developing younger players is a wiser investment than throwing money at an aging veteran. In other words, he's apparently learned his lesson after the failed experiment in signing Alex Kovalev to a two-year, $10 million contract. If, however, general manager Bryan Murray believes there is a missing piece available at a reasonable cost, he says he's all ears.

Daniel Alfredsson? Forget the old fa*rt! He should've retired 5 years ago! Tomas Tatar is the man! Did you see that kid burn the Bears last night? Why! He looked like a young Pavel Datsyuk! How do the Red Wings do it?

You also have to have a steak in it. But Tartar definitely has some sauce.

It's an odor they picked up Monday night and has lingered ever since.

Oh, I see. I was thinking more along the lines of tartar sauce and fish sticks. I've never been fond of steak tartar. Too French for me. Except for this ....

That's right, you're whole theory of shootout loses still count as loses, but shootout and overtime wins actually count as loses. That's sharp stuff.

Still not eating crow eh? Your boys got worked last night.
