My Ideal March 5 Scenario

After the massive Sabres-Blues deal that went down last night, here's my two cents on the moves I think the Senators should, and could, make.

To Vancouver Canucks: Jason Spezza, Chris Neil, Chris Phillips, Patrick Wiercioch

To Ottawa Senators: 20% of Spezza's remaining salary for the season, Ryan Kesler, Alex Edler

Vancouver gets gritty, veteran leadership that Torts will love, as well as a cheaper, younger puck-moving defenseman. Ottawa gets tougher defensively.

To Buffalo Sabres: Mike Hoffman, Mark Stone, conditional 2014 2nd round pick

To Ottawa Senators: Chris Stewart

Again, Ottawa gets tougher defensively and offensively with gifted winger Chris Stewart (acquired by Buffalo in the trade with St. Louis last night), while giving away high scoring prospects Stone and Hoffman.

With these trades, Ottawa solidifies their forward group, and makes their defense look better. Here are the new lines:

MacArthur-Turris-Ryan

Michalek-Kesler-Stewart

Conacher-Zibanejad-Condra

Greening-Da Costa-Zmith

Karlsson-Edler

Methot-Gryba

Cowen-Ceci
