Seems to me that the Sens are using an awful lot of their scouting resources, if these rumors are true, just to get a bottom 6 left winger. Are the Sens really one bottom 6 winger away from contending?

A defenseman makes more sense from their end. See: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=342549

Then again, a defenseman makes sense from our end too. So, it may be a matter of what type of defensman we're talking about.

Something to keep in mind--Jan Hejda is in the last year of his contract. He may be attractive for teams looking a low-cost rental to boost their defense.

This isn't out first rodeo. We've seen teams extensively scout us in the past to have it turn out to be nothing--the Rangers come to mind. We'll see if anything comes of this.
