from Chris Lund of Ottawa Senators.com,
On trade talks:
I've called three teams so far -- actually, four -- I'll call a number more and see if anyone wants to move. There are certain reasons to move fairly high and if we don't do that maybe we're okay where we are. I have talked and nobody has really gotten back to me and I don't suspect anyone will be willing to move down but, you never know, we might have an asset that would address a need.
On slow negotiations between teams at this point:
We have a GM meeting tomorrow in Boston and I think the opportunity to talk to a variety of managers of different teams will crop up and then we'll see if anyone is really interested in engaging and trying to do something for their team.
On working with teams that have cap issues:
I think there are a couple of teams that may have to, I've talked to one or two already but nobody is in a hurry. That doesn't come in to play for some time. We'll continue to talk and hopefully see there might be somebody there. If not, we've got a pretty good group of young players. I'd like to add one more player but we'll see what happens.
