Ottawa unhappy

As the cover of the Ottawa Sun shows, the people in Canada's capital weren't all that thrilled with deadline day. The Senators' only move was getting Martin Lapointe (though they did get Cory Stillman and Mike Commodore before Tuesday).

Ottsuncover1_2 The Sun quotes Senators GM Bryan Murray as saying he went after the Sabres' Brian Campbell. The paper says the team may have offered prospects Nick Foligno (son of Sabres Hall of Famer Mike Foligno), Ilja Zubov or Alexander Nikulin and a pick. Instead, Sabres GM Darcy Regier sent Campbell to San Jose for Steve Bernier and a pick.

"I felt like what I offered Darcy was better than what they got from San Jose, but Campbell wasn't going to stay in the East. The Sabres wanted him to go West," Murray told the paper.

Bernier is more of what the Sabres need.
