By Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post Dispatch is reporting that the Senators ” want a prospect, a player and a first-round pick for center Jason Spezza.”

Ales Hemsky is fine with living in hotels for the next month and, he hopes, weeks beyond that.
In fact, right now he doesn’t even want to think about where he’ll finally unpack his bags and stay awhile.
Eligible to test the free agent waters in July, Hemsky is being watched closely by Senators management as it determines if he’d be a good fit with the team going forward.
With two days to go until Wednesday’s 3pm et deadline, there’s some trade speculation surrounding Jason Spezza and the Ottawa Senators.
The Senators have an interest in St. Louis F Chris Stewart but they aren’t alone. He could be part of a deal with the Rangers if the Blues try to get F Ryan Callahan.
Chris Phillips realizes Thursday could be his last game at Canadian Tire Centre as a member of the home team.
He doesn’t need the reminder he’ll get when he sees his old friend Daniel Alfredsson wearing a Detroit Red Wings jersey.
Nobody thought Alfredsson, a Senators’ lifer like Phillips, would ever leave the organization, right?
If the Senators can pry a guy out of Buffalo to play alongside Jason Spezza, Matt Moulson should be their second choice.
Their primary focus needs to be on Steve Ott.
Bryan Murray thought he had a deal done Saturday.
Now, the Senators GM is starting to believe he won’t be making a trade before the Olympic break.
If it sounds like the Senators are taking a cautious approach on what they’ll do next, they are. Murray and his staff need to decide what they are willing to pay to get a rental and do they need someone for the playoff push alone?
“We identified what our team is right now and possible targets for possible trades,” said Dorion.
In the past, it has taken a second round pick and a prospect to get a deal done at the deadline. The options are limited if the Senators decide to go shopping. Here’s a look at a few of the names available on the trade front:
Speaking of Moulson, he’s a guy that interests the Ottawa Senators as well, a source said Tuesday.
Who might be available and who might be on the move in Edmonton?
Dreger: Sam Gagner, we know. Ales Hemsky, we know. Ryan Smyth is expected. There’s no dialog between Craig MacTavish and Ryan Smyth. The belief is that Smyth wants one more crack with a winning team to see if he can win the Stanley Cup. He’s still effective, at least in the offensive zone, so I expect his name will heat up as we get closer to the deadline.
