Is a Havlat for Michalek trade in the works?

NHL rumors: Michael Del Zotto drawing interest, on Sens’ radar

While he has definitely had his struggles, Del Zotto is still a player with plenty of potential as he is just 23 years old and is under team control for a while yet given his RFA status after this season. He’s a puck-moving defenseman when at his best and has had plenty of experience running the point on the Rangers’ power play over the last couple of seasons.

Ottawa Senators searching for 6th forward

One quarter of the way through the schedule, the Senators are still trying to find a bona-fide Top 6 forward.

The search has been internal so far, but GM Bryan Murray is also turning over all sorts of stones outside the organization.

Apparently, he’s even shown interest in a flash from the past.

Ottawa Senators could trade defenceman

While Senators GM Bryan Murray and coach Paul MacLean brought in Mark Borowiecki from Binghamton to try to stabilize a struggling blueline, the club won’t be keeping eight defencemen around much longer.

If GM Bryan Murray wants to make a trade there are several in the market for defencemen. It is one area where the Senators could be dealing from a position of strength.

Senators looking to upgrade their defense

The Senators GM started the ball rolling Saturday by calling up defenceman Mark Borowiecki from the club’s AHL affiliate in Binghamton Saturday but if this group doesn’t show a marked improvement quickly then bigger changes could be made.

It’s believed Murray has held talks with a couple of teams to try to make an upgrade and it’s believed he’ll try to shore up back end if the Senators don’t have success against the Dallas Stars Sunday at home and the Blue Jackets Tuesday in Columbus.

Something Bruin? – B’s reaching out to Alfredsson

For Ottawa’s hockey fans it is downright unfathomable to consider Daniel Alfredsson wearing any other jersey than the Senators’, but Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli isn’t letting that get in the way of trying to make it a reality.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN reported today that Chiarelli – a former Senators executive himself – reached out to Alfredsson’s camp and spoke with them “at great length” in hopes of luring the pending agent to Boston for the coming season.
