Forget about a trade.

A new Stone Age is more likely to happen before the Ottawa Senators make a big deal to bring in a marquee name who can fill the net, according to Senators general manager Bryan Murray.

“I’m looking to get a couple of guys healthy, that’s the main thing I’m looking for,” Murray said, when asked about the possibility of acquiring a proven scoring threat.

“There are no scorers available around the league. You can talk to people, but - I suppose that if I traded one of our top-end players, you could get a guy in the short-term — but I don’t know if there’s a ‘scorer’ being offered around the league.”

The Senators could have first-line left winger Milan Michalek back from his mysterious knee injury for Wednesday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It’s also possible that Mark Stone could be recalled from Binghamton of the American Hockey League, perhaps as early as Tuesday. On Monday, room was made when Derek Grant was sent back to Binghamton.

Stone, the 20-year-old former Canadian junior star, had been sidelined with a broken finger, but he returned to play Friday, Saturday and Sunday for Binghamton, registering a pair of assists in the three games.
