Daniel Alfredsson strongly hinted Thursday that he had a verbal agreement with the Ottawa Senators to work out a more lucrative contract for the 2013-14 season after he agreed to a team-friendly deal the last time around.

Alfredsson said the Senators asked him in 2009 to add an extra year worth $1 million to his contract to help bring the salary cap hit down with both sides expecting Alfie to retire before the 2012-13 season. According to Alfredsson, following the 2012 season he approached the Sens' front office when he decided he wanted to play another year. The sides then agreed to look at a contract extension to help balance out Alfie's $1 million salary for 2013, Alfredsson said. The negotiations went "nowhere," Alfredsson said Thursday, but he decided after the season he wanted to play one more year and expected the Sens to honor their agreement from the year before. We all know how that ended. For his part, Sens GM Bob Murray disagreed with Alfredsson's claims and said the former Ottawa captain "threw him under the bus" during Thursday's news conference. Murray said he believes Alfredsson's agent also misrepresented negotiations.
