Sens GM John Muckler aquires some much needed grit.

The Toronto Globe and Mail is reporting that last night Sens GM John Muckler aquired defensemen Todd simpson from the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in exchange for winger Petr Schastlivy.Simpson, 30, has 4 goals, 3 assists and 105 penalty minutes in 46 games with Anaheim this season. Schastlivy, 24, has 2 goals and 4 assists in 43 games with Ottawa this season.

Also TSN reports that Muckler has contacted former tough guy Rob Ray about returning to the NHL to play for the sens. He played 5 games for the sens last year before being injured, he then retired in the summer and has been working as a sports personality in buffalo since.

My personal opinion on Ray is that he should not come back as he has missed to much of the season and would just be a defense liability to the Sens coming back having not been working out.

The Sens do however need to get tough as the leafs proved saturday night and it will be interesting to see what comes out of all this.
