Senators Still Shopping

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

Right now, the Senators are trying to find help up front after freeing up approximately $3 million in cash by moving Spezza to the Stars. More than one team noted Ottawa is working the phones.

Wiercioch is scheduled to make $2 million next season and coach Paul MacLean barely put him in the lineup last year. There is no reason to believe that will change."‹

The Senators are studying all their options for a centre. They've reportedly held talks with Detroit UFA David Legwand (along with several other teams) and checked on Vinny Lecavalier.

It's highly unlikely the Senators will be acquiring Lecavalier anytime soon. Yes, the deal has been talked about, but I'm told the chances of it happening aren't good and a trade isn't close.

He has four years left with a cap hit of $4.5 million per-season. The Senators have no interest in picking up that contract and if they did the Flyers would have to eat $2 million per season.
