The Bruins have failed in their pursuit of Daniel Alfredsson. The former Ottawa captain chose the Red Wings over the Bruins on Friday, the first official day of free agency.
TSN reported it’s a one-year deal worth $5.5 million
The Bruins chased Alfredsson during the interview period. Alfredsson would have been Nathan Horton’s replacement as the No. 1 right wing next to Milan Lucic and David Krejci.
The Bruins will have to look elsewhere to fill their holes at right wing. They are down Horton, Jaromir Jagr, Tyler Seguin, and Rich Peverley. Loui Eriksson, acquired from Dallas in the deal for Seguin, could be their No. 2 right wing.
GM Peter Chiarelli wants a shooter to play alongside Lucic and Krejci.
