Senators News (March 2nd)

The Sens only received one call (link) on deadline day and turned down the offer for Erik Condra.  If there’s a clearer sign of how poorly valued their aging vets are, I don’t know what it is, but I suppose no deals is better than bad deals.  There were plenty of bad deals in the league and it was amusing to see the moribund Cory Conacher moved (presumably for Utica’s playoff run).

Another thing the deadline has illustrated is that Bryan Murray was not swayed in his understanding of the team by Andrew Hammond & Co.’s current hot streak.  He made no attempt to augment the group, so clearly he knows that the team needs changes.  Unfortunately, Murray is responsible for many of the problems on the roster, so I’m not sure he’s the man to fix them.

Prospect update (players signed are in green, those for whom decisions must be made this year are in red).  Last week I posted profiles of Tobias Lindberg and Mikael Wikstrand, so check them out if you missed them.
