The Ottawa Senators’ decision to re-sign Andrew Hammond to a three-year contract extension might have been a boost for the franchise but it did leave something of an overload of goalies on the roster. It’s looking as if either Craig Anderson or Robin Lehner will be traded before the end of the draft. While it will be a blow to lose either goalie, the Senators are rumoured to be asking for a top-six winger as well as a draft pick for either player, although Lehner has been attracting the interest of a host of teams, with Buffalo and Edmonton monitoring the 23-year-old’s situation.
Prolific Toronto Maple Leafs right winger Phil Kessel had a rough 2014-15 season. It was the first of his six seasons with the Leafs where he failed to score 30 goals or more (sans the 2012-13 lockout season), and also the first season that he didn’t lead the team in goals.

PIT is in the market for top 6 forwards. Not easy to acquire but I expect, with Martin/Ehrhoff going to UFA, PIT will be quite young on D.
