The Ottawa Senators finally made some news yesterday as they extended Zack Smith for two years totalling $1.4 million and Colin Greening for three years totalling $2.5 million. With that, the Senators now have 9 forwards signed to one-way contracts and with Bobby Butler almost certainly getting a one-way deal, that will make for 10 forwards on one-way contracts. This might mean the end for one of Chris Neil, Nick Foligno or Peter Regin at the draft, as they could be used to move up in the draft.
