Daniel Alfredssons explanation for leaving the Ottawa Senators and signing with the Detroit Red Wings sparked plenty of reaction from the principals involved, including his agent J.P. Barry, Senators general manager Bryan Murray and even NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly. And it didnt take long for Eugene Melnyk to weigh in as well. The Senators team owner was quick to defend Murray and their side of the offseasons biggest story and took direct aim at Barry for Alfredssons exit from the nations capital. "For anyone to even suggest the remote possibility that Bryan Murray is not fully honest in his clear recollection of events should be ashamed of themselves," Melnyk told TSN on Friday. "I point the finger squarely on JP Barry, the man who blessed us with the (Dany) Heatley mess." Speaking to reporters in Ottawa on Thursday, Alfredsson said a lack of communication in contract negotiations with the Senators factored in for his choice to sign a one-year contract with the Red Wings and that his last contract had been structured under the assumption he would retire before the final year of the deal that paid $1 million. Alfredsson then said that Barry informed Murray that in late June that he wanted to play another season. "Im disappointed to hear that contract issues were something important to him that he didnt feel we were trying to accommodate," Murray said on the team website after the news conference. "I think in every shape and form we wanted this man back to be the captain of our hockey team and it didnt work out. Sometimes in negotiating all the facts arent maybe presented to the player the right way, but we certainly feel bad that Daniel reacted the way he did today." Murray added Alfredsson asked for a $7 million, one-year contract or $12 million, two year contract prior to the 2013 draft. He said the team countered with a one-year deal worth $4.5 million which Alfredsson declined and talks dwindled from there. Murray also told The Ottawa Sun on Thursday he thought Barry may not have been giving him or Alfredsson all the details over the contract negotiations between both sides - a sentiment shared by Melnyk. "If you want to play a blame game - that is where you should be looking," Melnyk told TSN on Friday. "I have a lot of respect for Daniel. I simply think he was not told the whole story or worse, was lied to. I wont be commenting on this again. We are busy and have a Stanley Cup to win." JP Barry was contacted by TSN on Friday for a response and said he stood by his comments made the previous day. "Shooting the messenger is something I have never believed in nor will I ever," Barry explained to TSN on Thursday. "Its just not productive in our business to make negotiations personal." "I decided not to respond in July when Bryan chose to criticize my role as an agent in this process. It was an emotional day. I get it. "The fact is this was a negotiation concerning impending free agency. We made multiple offers and invited them to negotiate. They provided a number on the weekend prior to July 5 and said this is all they can do due to internal budget restrictions. It wasnt a market offer in our estimation. They wanted Daniel to take a below market deal again after he had done the same several times previously and we didnt feel that was appropriate." Angels Jerseys 2020 .

MIAMI -- NBA superstar Dwyane Wade is challenging athletes to move beyond symbolic gestures and rhetoric amid protests to raise awareness of social issues dividing parts of the country.Actions speak louder than the words you say, Wade said Saturday. We have to continue to do things in our communities to try to raise the bar. The great thing about being an athlete today is you can make a stand for what you believe in, and its OK.For Wade, that meant spending his Saturday morning pedaling along a 6-mile course in Coconut Grove alongside more than 1,000 other cyclists that included minority children, adults from various backgrounds and police officers from Miami in the D-Wade CommUNITY Bike Ride. The event capped a week of promotional events Wades foundation held back in Miami before the former Heat icon heads to his Chicago hometown to open training camp next week after signing with the Bulls.Wade, who spent his first 13 season with the Heat and won three NBA titles in Miami, has spent much of the offseason engaged in social activism in both cities. He has also been at the forefront in a recent trend of professional athletes who have used their platforms to address police brutality, discrimination of minorities and inner-city gun violence.Although Saturdays bike event was planned months earlier, it came a day after a shooting spree in Philadelphia left two people dead and two police officers among five others who were wounded. The tragedy in Philadelphia follows other police-involved shootings in Baton Rouge, Dallas, Minneapolis and Miami that have gripped the country in recent months.First of all, its not OK, Wade told ESPN when asked about the Philadelphia shootings. Im not promoting that killing is OK. Im a supporter of my community, the African-American community. Im a believer in Black Lives Matter, 100 percent. But Im also a believer that its not OK for anyone to kill. Its all about communication.Wade, 34, said all sides need to do a better job of listening and respecting opposing viewpoints.I think police need to do a better job of communicating to the community of what theyre looking for and what theyre out there doing, Wade continued, speaking of the general unrest that exists in some communities. And its important for the community to have an opportunity to communicate back to them as well -- to have them explain whatever their problems [are] and how theyre handling them -- to be able to move past this terrible epidemic were seeing. Today, this ride was all about unity.Wade said his event Saturday was designed to bring everyone together for a positive examplle of interaction between law enforcement officials and residents of the communities they serve.dddddddddddd As Wade moved his bike toward the front of the line to start Saturdays race, organizers motioned for a young African-American boy to join an assistant Miami police chief to both ride alongside the 12-time All-Star.After the race, Wade spoke to the crowd about bike safety and community engagement before the event eventually turned into a waterfront block party. Its been an emotional summer for Wade, who has spent most of the summer addressing a number of social issues. In July, he spoke at the ESPYS alongside NBA star friends Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James and Chris Paul in a plea to police shootings and retaliatory gun violence. Last month, Wade spoke on panel hosted by ESPNs The Undefeated that addressed athletes and gun violence. A day later in Chicago, Wades cousin was killed as she pushed a stroller down the street in a shooting that was intended for another target.All of those events have weighed heavily on Wade and his family.When something hits you the way it hit us, it becomes [more] real, Wade said. And the great thing about my family is we come together more and try to be stronger and make more of an impact as much as we can. No matter what shape, size or color you are, you were invited out here today to understand how important community is and how strong we are when we come together.Wade also said hes been encouraged by other athletes who have answered the call the four NBA stars made during the ESPYS show two months ago. Wade has since seen a group of athletes follow San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has been kneeling in protest during the playing of the national anthem to call attention to racial discrimination in the country.Count Wade among some NBA players who believe athletes in their sport will continue to find ways to express themselves and their discontent with social issues once the season opens next month.If you have something you believe in, take a stand and get behind it, Wade said. We have this platform. ... Were portrayed as bigger than life because were on the big stage. But were everyday people as well. And its OK to have a voice and express that. We through a call out [in July] to all athletes to use their voice and their platform to do more ... to help the community, whatever race you are, and to stand up for what you believe in. And its great to see athletes standing up to do that. ' ' '
