Video: Senators’ captain Alfredsson discusses his future

May 24, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT

With the Ottawa Senators now out of the Stanley Cup playoffs, the focus turns to what the future holds for captain Daniel Alfredsson.

Was Friday’s game – a 6-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinal eliminated the Senators – Alfredsson’s last in the National Hockey League? He is 40 years of age, has 1,178 regular season games to his credit and is a pending unrestricted free agent this summer.

“I haven’t yet,” Alfredsson told reporters when asked if he had given thought to his future.

“All I can say is it’s been a great year in terms of the group we’ve had.”

    If he doesn’t come back to the ice, he may have a long career ahead of him as a prognostic. He nailed his last prediction.

    “it’s been a great year in terms of the team we’ve had.”

    Way to write your team off when you are still in the playoffs.

    Bye-bye Alfy…a veteran captain like you should’ve known that you don’t say what you said after game 4. Way to show faith in your team.

    Go Pens

    Huh. For the last 15 years, I thought Leaf fans were the biggest douches on the planet. Turns out the honor belongs to our friends in Pennsylvania. Amazing what a technicality-induced double first overall pick can do for the ego.

    If Ovechkin said what Alfredson said, he would have been vilified. Good riddance Danny. Also, how is Cindy’s mouth? I guess he did good work on the refs to mess her mouth up that bad.

    Alfredsson is a class act and I hope he comes back. Would love to see him in the Olympics also. Sens have a good young team with a bright future

    That was the saddest Sens group of underachieving so-calld players i’ve ever seen. Go back to drinking Alfie, ur nose is going thru withdrawl
