The Ottawa Senators made a huge move when they aquired star forward Matt Duchene from the Colorado Avalanche, but it doesn't sound like they are done just yet. 

TSN insider Darren Dreger is now reporting that a multiple National Hockey League franchises have reached out to the Senators to inquire about big 22-year-old forward Nick Paul, a former Dallas Stars fourth round draft choice in 2013.

Furthermore Dreger adds that as a result this may now be the time for Ottawa to make a decision on whether or not Paul is a fit for their roster, or if he's better used as an asset in a trade deal.

Paul is listed at 6'4 223lbs, but despite his impressive physical attributes he never really found a steady spot on the Senators NHL line up, instead spending the majority of his time in the American Hockey League. 

That being said it's clear there are several teams who feel his powerful presence up front would be of benefit to them, and with the Senators clearly all in at this point it may be time for them to pull the trigger on a trade deal involving Paul.
