I believe Lombardi was willing to move Schenn, he just wasn't getting what he wanted as a return until Richards. LA needed more depth at center, Richards filled that bill perfectly.

In the case of Ottawa, there is no doubt the team could use a second line center. But with Regin's return and kids like Da Costa and Zibanejad what is the point in giving up much to get one, when it is a temporary move?

Murray will probably stand pat this year, unless a GM makes an offer that is just impossible to turn down.
