Also, Daniel Alfredsson bids adieu to Ottawa in Ottawa, and Ryan Suter has a disease; guess which one Ric Jackman is a 36-year-old defenseman currently playing for the Nippon Paper Cranes of the Asia Ice Hockey League according to Wikipedia.  During his somewhat brief NHL career, the right-shooting blueliner scored 77 points in 231 NHL games while picking up a Stanley Cup ring with the Ducks in 2007.  Hey, maybe he could be a 3rd-line pairing for the Stars' D this year to balance things out,...

Islanders Gameday News: What's it all about? Alfie.

*Warning: Tonight's game may contain some Islanders-like product, FIG picks for tonight's rematch versus Ottawa can be left here.

Today's post focuses on another strong performance by Alfie against the Sabres. Alfredsson made quite the statement on November 3, 2005 when both he and Martin Havlat scored four goals to lead the Senators offensive outburst against the Buffalo and earn Ottawa a 10-4 win.
