News: MacArthur inked a five-year, $23.25 million extension with the Senators on Tuesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Impact: MacArthur was already under contract for $3.25 million for this season, so the new five-year deal won't kick in until 2015-16, keeping him under team control through the end of the 2019-20 campaign. The 29-year-old totaled a career-best 24 goals, 78 PIM and plus-12 rating in his first season in Ottawa, and will be counted on to fill a top-line role long-term on the left wing.

News: Borowiecki and the Senators agreed to terms on a three-year, $3.3 million contract Monday, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Impact: Borowiecki was already set to enter the upcoming season with a guaranteed NHL contract for the first time in his career, so the extension just give him some more long-term security with the Senators. The 25-year-old hasn't shown much of a knack for scoring with the Senators or at AHL Binghamton over the last several seasons, but with regular playing time, he could rank among the league's PIM leaders on the blue line.

News: The Senators want to sign Methot to a long-term deal before his contract ends next summer, but talks between the two sides have stalled, according to the Ottawa Citizen. Methot has served as Erik Karlsson's defense partner over the last two seasons when the latter has been healthy.
Impact: He's earning $3.75 million, but it appears he's asking for Brooks Orpik or Matt Carle kind of money. Orpik inked a five-year, $27.5 million contract with Washington this summer and Carle is going into year two of his six-year, $33 million deal with Tampa Bay. That's steep money for a team that currently sits 28th in payroll and is always rumored to be in money problems. Methot may get traded if the team cannot come to terms with him soon. The Sens are all about leveraging assets right now and he'd be attractive to most other teams as a defensive rudder.
