Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun thinks the Ottawa Senators should land big-ticket free-agent Corey Perry this summer.  " If Melnyk wants a championship as much as he lets on, he must still toss and turn with nightmares of how Perry played such a large role in keeping him from one that spring. If he wants to sip from the Cup as he says, he must be prepared to offer Perry a deal he can't refuse when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this July."Brian Murray now general manager of the Ottawa Senators took Corey Perry for  Anaheim 28 overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. So there's a working relationship history there. It been widely speculated that if Perry leaves his current team it would be to go close to home in Ontario. Brennan outlines the reasons why the Ottawa Senators are a better choice than the Toronto Maple Leafs: "Sure, the Buds are improving.

Corey Perry On His Suspension

from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog, Corey Perry figured that he would receive some form of discipline from the NHL for his hit on Minnesota's Jason Zucker and the possibility of him being out of the Ducks' lineup was realistic. But a four-game suspension? That one didn't enter the winger's mind. "I think it’s caught a lot of people off guard,"...

Chris Kelly: Broken Leg

A little late on the news, but Chris Kelly was diagnosed with a broken left tibia after receiving a hit by Ottawa Senator's Chris Neil on Monday night. Kelly will most likely be out 6-8 weeks, meaning he is done for the regular season. This is a big blow for the third line.

Rental players are basically why the trade deadline has become such a big event to follow on a yearly basis. Contenders around the NHL spend the day acquiring players with expiring deals for their playoff runs while non-playoff teams attempt to acquire pieces to use as a foundation for their inevitable rebuild.
