Alfredsson's contract situation

Not really anything to say about it but I was looking for it earlier this year I hadn't seen it anywhere before:
Under the terms of Alfredsson's contract with the Senators, he is scheduled to make $5.465 million US next season. Three option years -- all at $3.8 million per-year -- then kick in at the start of the 2009-10 season.
That's where it becomes tricky. Under the terms of the agreement, if Alfredsson plays in 70 or more regular-season games and averages a point per game, then he has the right to decide if he wants to return the next season.
Should Alfredsson not meet the point requirements, then it's up to Ottawa management to decide if they want him to return the next year. The same rules exists for the final two options years of the contract.
