Usually when hockey players talk about "playing guilty," they're referring to their participation in a game following a night they stayed out way too late.

But Daniel Alfredsson's guilt Wednesday in Florida was quite the opposite.

"I always feel guilty when I hear his name," Alfredsson said when asked about Panthers coach Kevin Dineen, who was his teammate in Ottawa for the 1999-2000 season. "He's an outdoorsman, too, and we set up a hunting trip. He was up at 4 a.m., I think, and I slept in. We ended up not going. So I always feel guilty when I hear his name."

Has he forgiven you?

"Probably not," chuckled Alfredsson.
