Sopel has another year left on his contract, whereas Volchenkov is UFA at season's end. We can't take on your salary dump.

As a Sens fan, I'd propose:

Barker + 1st round pick for Volchenkov.

Volchenkov can push you over the hump in the playoffs. He's the extra goalie you want on the back-end and as great as Keith and Seakbrook are, Huet would be thrilled to have Volchenkov save at least 5 shots for him every game.

It's also a perfect situation for Ottawa cause Barker has the potential to become a top pairing defensemen... and his contract hit is a little more than what Volchenkov is making right now and for 3 years.

Heck I would do Barker + 2nd round pick for Volchenkov

Again, this is all hypothetical. I hope Murray does whatever he can to re-sign Volchenkov. 3 years at Phillips money would be amazing deal
