The Bruins chased Alfredsson during the interview period. Alfredsson would have been Nathan Hortonís 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 could be their No. 2 right wing.
GM Peter Chiarelli wants a shooter to play alongside Lucic and Krejci.
