Ottawa Senators look to trade for top 6 forward

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:

Are the Senators interested in Matt Moulson?

Speaking of Moulson, he’s a guy that interests the Ottawa Senators as well, a source said Tuesday.

Oilers and Sens trade rumors

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.

Ottawa Senators not alone in pursuit of Del Zotto

The NHL trade freeze has been lifted and it is back to business as usual for Senators GM Bryan Murray and his other 29 counterparts.

While Murray has been working the phones heavily for the last month, he’ll step up his efforts to try to find a top six forward and puck-moving defenceman with the holiday ban officially over at 12:01 a.m. Friday.

Will The Rangers and Sens finally make a deal?

Senators know when teams struggle, trade winds blow

The NHL’s Christmas roster freeze was to kick in at midnight Thursday, meaning general manager Bryan Murray’s hands are tied on the trade front.

For now.

Sens not likely to make any moves before the Christmas Deadline

The NHL’s Christmas roster freeze goes into effect Thursday at midnight, but GM Bryan Murray likely won’t be doing anything. He has been trying to get either a top six forward or a defenceman with no luck. Since that’s the case, the roster will likely stay the same until at least Dec. 28 when the ban to make moves is lifted.

Sens lucky Leafs bust Clarkson declined their offer

The lament of every fisherman is “the big one that got away.”

NHL general managers have their own hits and misses, big fish they pursue in rough, open waters. Sometimes they reel them in, more often they miss.

Routinely, the free agent that teams DON’T sign turns out to be the greatest move of all. Genius, by default.

Ottawa Senators could have interest in Pierre-Marc Bouchard

Bryan Murray decided not to head to California to see if he could swing a deal at the NHL’s board of governors meetings.

But if the Senators GM is looking for a top six forward that might be able to play on the right side of centre Jason Spezza there is one available on waivers to be claimed before noon Tuesday.
