VANCOUVER - All was quiet on the trade front Sunday.

But Bryan Murray will do some shopping.

With the trade deadline set for Wednesday at 3 p.m. EST, Senators' owner Eugene Melnyk told CBC anybody who thinks they're going to sell off assets should give their head a shake.

"We're easily considered a buyer ... we're definitely not sellers," said Melnyk before the club's 4-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks in Sunday's Heritage Classic at BC Place.
