The remaining elephant in the room

Dorian is on fire with awesome trades/ acquisitions and now the Sens have a respectable offense.

So what about Nikita Zaitsev? What are the Sens going to do with a player who makes everyone he plays with worse? They missed the buyout window, and Zaitsev is probably next to impossible to be traded, so do the Sens actually play him in the top 4?

The way I see it, if Zaitsev is a top 4D next season, none of the changes made so far will matter - The Sens will miss the playoffs again. While one player does not make a team, this player sure broke the Sens defense.
