Was Alfredsson aiming for Niedermayer?
Mon, June 4, 2007

Do you think Daniel Alfredsson was aiming at the Ducks captain near the end of the second period?

Could this play be a turning point for the Ducks? Will it give them any extra motivation to finish off the Senators at home in Anahiem?

Have your say in our forum.

Sadly, hockey as we know it has become a joke...idiots and true disgraces like Chris Neil actaully dive in the air elbow first at a players head ( a smaller player, as is always the case with Neil, who becomes a human turtle when a larger, tougher player approaches ) and a true wanna-be, but never can be hero like Alfredsson have made the sport a mockery. And the officials who are supposedly the best this league has to offer choose to ignore the blatent attempts to injure and focus on the ridiculous and obvious dives of a carnival clown like Ray Emery instead. Alfredsson is the symbol of hockey today...pathetic and sad..So stupid that you actually gave your opponent the incentive to beat you..Congratulations hero..your legacy as a choker is complete

There's no doubt Alfredsson was aiming at Niedermayer. Like Brett Hull said it was a gutless thing to do. His stupid actions will cost Ottawa the cup and will cost Alfredsson -- the players won't forget.

The Sens better start playing gritty or they'll be back in O-town having some Beaver Tails.

Alfredsson will never be even close to the leader Messier is!

He didn't mean to hit Niedermayer. He was just trying to send a message like a ship firing a shot acrost the bow and Neidermayer got in the way. It's not Alfie's fault that Neidermayer moved in the way. Alfie is a great leader. Even Muckler says he's like Messier. SENS in 7

Absolutely! Alf is a wizard with the puck and could thread a needle with it if he wanted to. Winding up in open ice just over his own blueline is a clear intention he wanted to hurt Niedermayer. If he didn't want to hurt him he would of dumped the puck in lightly to kill the rest of the period. He knows that!

this column is great! Love It. Only the real true blue canadian hockey fans show up here. BTW...Alfie = guilty...however, to be an effective player you've got to play with an edge.

Well there is without a doubt that Alfredsson tried to shoot the puck at Niedermeyer on purpose. But he has never had the guts to stand up and fight like a man. Who would want him to be captain of their team?

Words of many letters do not make one intelligent, and those who do not elucidate on the appropriate topic, but instead direct the conversation to maligning loyalty, do not inspire respect for oneself or those one associates with, Mr. O'Leary. Leaf fans have nothing to do with Alfredsson's pathetic lack of sportmanship, which is the topic at hand. This is like watching the London Knights and Plymouth Whalers whining and head-hunting when they lose - we have the right to expect more from someone who is supposed to be a professional and a leader, instead of deliberate attempts to injure. And btw, Darcy Tucker's brother in law is no longer a Leaf. Just two more examples how true hockey fans cannot respect the Sens or their fans.

Alfredsson is an idiot and most certainly did it on purpose, he should have dropped his gloves like a man, but then Niedermayer would have dropped him like the girl he is! Go Ducks Go!!
