The Senators added some size and depth to their roster by acquring Martin Lapointe (non-pool) from the Blackhawks for a 6th round pick this summer.

The Senators added some cup experience with this deal, while the Blackhawks are in an obvious veteran fire sale. The deal, quite obviously a rental, could work very much in the Senators favour, but let's not forget how well the Hawks have been drafting over the last few years. They've been doing very well and if they can add more young talent to their pool, then the Hawks are all that much better for it.
