From a Senators perspective, I don't see any of Heatley, Spezza or Alfredsson getting moved before the deadline.
I think Murray will focus on getting maximum value for Kuba, Neil and McAmmond. I suspect Kuba will bring back a 2nd rounder and a good prospect, Neil a 2nd rounder (or perhaps a 3rd and a prospect), and McAmmond maybe a 5th rounder. Schubert could also be shipped out for a pick.
I think the Sens would love to the contracts of Jason Smith ($2.6M) and maybe Chris Kelly ($2.125M), but I don't see any takers.
I could also see a Vermette-Barker swap as discussed earlier in this thread by a few posters. It think it makes sense for both Ottawa (need puck-moving d-men) and Chicago (who need a 2nd line centre).
