We are pretty lucky as Canadians and Sens fans to have a lot going on after the jubilation of the Gold medal game and now with the trade deadline coming up on Wednesday and the Volchenkov talks going no where. Looking at the calibre of players so far that have been getting teams 2nd round picks, you have to think Volchenkov will get at least a first. There are only a handful of quality top 4 defenceman available this deadline and I think we can agree Volchenkov is that. So this sets up Bryan Murray very well if he has to trade Volchenkov. Should he trade him and get what he can now? If he knows Volchenkov probably won't resign, will he keep him for the playoffs and lose him to nothing? Very hard decisions for Murray have to be made.
