Alfredsson is going to return to the Senators in a role with the team's hockey operations department.

The first order of business for the Sens should be retiring Alfredsson's jersey.

Alfredsson on the verge of return to Senators organization - Article - TSN

Former captain Daniel Alfredsson is on the verge of returning to the Ottawa Senators organization.

A source tells TSN 1200 that Alfredsson is hammering out the final details to accept a role in the club's hockey operations department. An official announcement is expected at some point before the start of training camp next month.

Alfredsson's future with the Senators organization was cast into doubt following a messy divorce from the club in the summer of 2013. After contract negotiations went off the rails with the Senators, Alfredsson opted to sign a one-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings. He retired after the 2013-14 campaign, leaving many to wonder if he would ever return to Ottawa after such an awkward departure.

But the door for Alfredsson's return was opened in early December of 2014 when he officially announced his retirement from the NHL during an emotional ceremony in Ottawa. Following that event, the frostiness between Alfredsson and the organization melted away and the long-time captain was welcomed back into the fold.

He sat alongside general manager Bryan Murray during the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, leading to speculation that he was interested in pursuing a front office job with the club.

Alfredsson told TSN 1200 in June that he was going to spend the next two months in Sweden with his family and would make a decision about his career path at some point during the summer.

Murray has said that 2015-16 will be his final campaign as general manager, so Alfredsson's addition to the front office would provide additional depth for the staff. He has previously stated he would be open to working in a variety of roles in the front office, though it's not clear at this time what his official title will be with the hockey operations staff.

Alfredsson is the Senators franchise leader in virtually every meaningful statistical category, including goals (426), assists (682) and points (1108) and served as team captain for 13 seasons.

Not all sports franchises make money. The losses incurred by these teams are easily covered by the owner's other, more lucrative, businesses.

Aquaman also owns quite a few Pizza Hut franchises in the Lower Mainland

I knew that there had to be a reason why Pizza Hut is connected to the team with contest promotions on canucks.com.

Pizza Hut, pizza yuck.

if you're having a hard time finding where to buy tickets online

Post the code on the 2015 PNE thread. I thought that there's no way Aquaman is giving me a $5 discount on Canucks tickets.

Aquaman does not simply give discounts like that.

Though aren't lower bowl tickets relatively cheap now compared to what they were a few years ago?

Yeah, I would say that lower bowl tickets to Canucks games are relatively cheaper compared to a few seasons ago.

Aquaman just makes his profit in other ways like selling more retro jerseys or jacking up the prices on a finer selection of food and drink at games. -examples like prime rib, craft beer, or lobster rolls. :

At least the aqualinis realized the product was tanking and invested HUGE into the game day experiance/rogers arena

Lions owner David Brailey could take a lesson or two from them, the way the lions are going sub 15k attendance is in the near future and It is just a brutal product for the price of the ticket relative to the whitecaps, Canadians, etc

he was on 1040 saying that all his summer sessions were booked in advance, that's why he's still around.

plus, most of his new teammates are probably out of town anyway, won't really get to know them till training camp starts.

Not gonna lie, was never a big fan of Crosby and I've always thought he was overrated but this was a good article.
he seems like a GGG.
