Alfie Practices In Sens Jersey: Reaction?

So, this tweet came out Monday morning from the Ottawa Citizen’s twitter feed:


Reaction came quickly and really negative that the former captain would still sport the Sens jersey after what he has put the team and the city through over the past 6 weeks.

Personally, I don’t like it, and I am sure he has a generic practice jersey somewhere in his house (unless it has all been packed for Detroit already), or otherwise he could go to Sport Check and pick up a plain white or black jersey.

With the hard feelings directed in various directions, this move seems to smack of Alfie taunting the media, fans and even the team.  Its almost like he is saying “you thought you would never see me in a Sens jersey again right?”.

Its not like those skates are in a single pad arena somewhere out of the spotlight.  It is at the Senators training facility and those skates are widely attended.

It just seems to be in really bad taste at the moment and a poor move from Alfie.

What do you think?

    Beating a horse to death. I’m over Yashin, I’m over Heatley, I’m over Alfredsson. I’m also over Hossa, Fisher, Chara, even Daigle. Alfredsson is gone, but he still remains friends. Didn’t several Senators give Reddon a picture of all his images from various teams? They are all still friends, let them practice. As for the jersey, it looks generic, no number. Lets not be childish about all this. Looks like one of the players in the background is sporting a Winnipeg Jets jersey. Hard to tell with the focus though.

      It wasn’t a “Senators” skate. There are pros from the area who play for other teams there as well and they can feel free to wear their team’s jersey. I don’t have a problem with Alfie skating with them, but wearing the Sens logo a month after turning his back on the team seems a little out of taste.
