This trade is a good move on several levels.

First the Sens get another d-man who is tough downlow and that is where most goals in the playoffs are scored.

Second, Simpson is a proven leader.

Third, it takes him off the market so other teams, (Leafs, Devils, Flyers,Isles) can't get him. The Devils usually obtain a player of this sort near the deadline and there is lot of talk about the other 3 teams addind D or toughening up.

Muckler is proving to be a good strategist as well.
