When it was announced that Alfie would finally speak on Thursday, I have to admit I didn't have very high expectations, especially when it was revealed there would be no media scrums afterwards. I figured he'd dance around actually saying anything and it wouldn't amount to much. But along the way, guess what happened? He was surprisingly forthcoming and candid, and even more importantly, he sound very genuine in my opinion. He doesn't sound bitter, more disappointed in the way that always makes you feel worse than someone being mad at you.
One thing is for sure, he certainly handles himself a lot better than he did on the conference call after he signed in Detroit. He didn't exactly come off as sympathetic at the time, but today may have changed that for many Sens fans. It did for me.
Has your opinion about the situation changed?
