Sens & Canes Complete 4-Player Trade

The Senators have acquired defenceman Mike Commodore and forward Cory Stillman(above) in exchange for defenceman Joe Corvo and forward Patrick Eaves.

The Senators are looking to shake things up by acquiring the veteran foraward and defensemen in exchange for their younger talent. Commodore is a proven playoff warrior, and Stillman brings in even more experience along with a knack to find the net. Both were members of the Carolina cup winning team of 2006.

The Canes are looking to shake things up on a so far disappointing season, moving forward with youth. The Canes have now acquired the offensive d-man they have been searching for, but it certainly came at a price.

Stillman waived his No-Trade Clause to move to Ottawa. He and Commodore will be unrestricted free agents at season's end, while Eaves will be restricted. Corvo has two years remaining on his $2.75 mil/yr contract.
