This past weekend we saw a trade between the Ottawa Senators and Carolina Hurricanes. 

Alex Galchenyuk and Cedric Paquette were moved to Carolina as the Hurricanes sent Ryan Dzingel to Ottawa. 

However NHL insider Chris Johnston reports that those players shouldn't get too comfortable in their new cities. 

Johnston reports that while the Hurricanes like Paquette, Galchenyuk will likely be on the move again and there's no guarantee Dzingel stays in Ottawa. 

“Well, I don’t think that anyone involved in it should get too comfortable. Certainly from the Carolina end of things. I think etting Cedric Paquette in for them was the key to making this deal happen. They like what he can bring. Obviously coming off a Stanley Cup in the bubble with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

I don’t think it’s out of the question that Alex Galchenyuk’s stay in Carolina is short. He’s bounced around a lot in recent years and could be on the move again here in the near future.

And the Senators have a decision to make on a familiar face in Ryan Dzingel. He’s in the last year of his contract currently, and if they don’t want to keep him beyond this season, he’ll be someone I think will be flipped before the April 12th deadline for a pick.”

Sounds like we'll have some more action soon.
