Sens looking to make trade

Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray is actively scouring the trade market looking to make a deal that will improve his team's chances of making the playoffs.

Murray, who signed a contract extension through the 2015-16 season on Monday, told the media earlier today, he'd like to add a piece to his roster.

"Just watching the progress in the last month and a little bit, I think that the objective now is certainly more than it was a month before," Murray said. "We are available to make a deal."

The Senators have a number of young pieces that are willing to trade in exchange for NHL-proven talent, though Murray refuses to move top prospect Curtis Lazar.

"We do have a number of players that probably are deserving of playing some games or playing in the NHL that may not get a chance because of our numbers up here that we would talk to teams about for a more veteran-type player," Murray said.

In the off-season, the Senators acquired sniper Bobby Ryan from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for winger Jakob Silfverberg and prospect Stefan Noesen.

Murray, presumably, would like to complete a similar deal before the March 5 trade deadline.

The Senators have been talking to the Winnipeg Jets about one of their top forwards -- Evander Kane, Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler -- and have expressed an interest in Edmonton Oilers right wing Ales Hemsky.

It's believed the Sens have also had an eye on Calgary Flames forwards Michael Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak.
