Buyers or Sellers? Either. Ottawa has a plethora of talented young players, so it doesn't need to trade assets in order to build for the future. But this also is not quite a playoff team, and after acquiring a big contract in Dion Phaneuf, the Senators might want to clear up some cap space at the deadline. Team needs Defense.
