OTTAWA - Bryan Murray knew he was getting a good player when he dealt Brian Elliott to Colorado to acquire Craig Anderson.

But he probably couldn’t have imagined Anderson would turn out to be this good.

“He’s one of the top players in the league, certainly an MVP on this hockey team the way he carried us until he got hurt,” said the Senators GM. “He’ll be a reason for the next few years why this team will be good. Our depth at the position, with Robin Lehner, is really exceptional. (Lehner) is a young man who will be one of the top goaltenders in the National Hockey League for a lot of years.

“One of the things we talked about when I first came here is you have to have top goaltending. The years you play without it, you understand what you’re really missing. These guys give us a chance to win every night.
