The Deal: The Senators trade F Patrick Eaves and D Joe Corvo to the Hurricanes for F Cory Stillman and D Mike Commodore.

The Skinny: The Senators traded a young guy in Eaves and an offensive defenceman in Corvo for a top-six forward in Stillman and a stay-at-home defenceman in Commodore. The deal addresses two hot issues for the Senators: A lack of scoring depth and more toughness on the blue line.

The Winner: The Senators. They add two Stanley Cup winners and shore up a couple of weak spots.
