Pre-Draft Availability

GM Bryan Murray, Assistant GM Tim Murray & Director of Player Personnel Pierre Dorion spoke with the media before departing for New Jersey for this weekend’s NHL Entry Draft.  Here’s some news that came from their availability.

– Bryan Murray expects to get an answer from Daniel Alfredsson by Friday. If he were to guess, he feels the captain will return.

– Murray thinks it will be very difficult to move up.  Has contacted some of the teams at the top but hasn’t made any progress.

– Tim Murray says that unless one of the top tier defenceman fall, Sens will likely take a forward.  Would love to get a skillful, power forward but will not select based on size.  Best player available.

– Pierre Dorion indicated that the team brought in 4 prospects that they thought would be available at 17 to get to know them better.
