According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, the Senators are looking join the teams looking to pick the carcass of the Calgary Flames and have inquired about getting winger Curtis Glencross out of the Stampede City.

Glencross, if he were acquired, would instantly become the Senators’ leading goal-scorer this season, as he already has 14. Kyle Turris, Daniel Alfredsson and Jakob Silfverberg currently share that distinction with 8.

Glencross is very affordable at $2.55M and would not be a rental, as he is signed for 2 more seasons after this one.

Apparently among the asking price is goaltender Ben Bishop.  If Craig Anderson is healthy enough to return shortly, the Senators will have decisions to make in net, and Bishop has long been rumored to be the odd man out.  If that is the case and the Senators are looking to move a netminder, then getting back a solid roster player who is a solid 20G-40PTS player who has decent size and grit would be a better option at this point than getting back a 2nd round pick or later.

The trade deadline is Wednesday, and Anderson’s ability to prove he is ready to return will have a big influence on whether this deal gets done or not.
