Playing in Sweden won't be a get-rich-quick experience for Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson.
A report in today's editions of Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet said Alfredsson will only make $6,000 (all terms US) a month while he plays for the Frolunda Indians, for whom he'll suit up tonight.
That's a far cry from the five-year, $32.5-million contract that Alfredsson, 32, signed with the Senators last spring.
In fact, his Swedish salary won't even cover his insurance costs -- which are about $33,000 for every million on his deal with Ottawa.
"Obviously, he didn't have the whole contract insured," an NHL source said yesterday.
