from the Ottawa Citizen,
It’s bad enough that the buyers heading into the Feb. 27 trade deadline outnumber sellers because so many teams are lingering around the final playoff positions. Basic market principles dictate that the asking prices will be high if demand is strong and the supply limited.
On top of that, organizations have to decide if a shakeup of a roster is worth the risk. In adding a player, typically a veteran who can boost a playoff run, someone on the existing roster is going to be affected, with reduced ice time or a spot in the press box.
Now, mix in the fact that, around here, the Ottawa Senators don’t exactly have a history of striking gold with pre-deadline moves.
