I'd have to agree with J17. At the deadline, if I was Ottawa and I was in a good position for contending for a cup, I'd perhaps give up:
1st and a minor prospect, and a 3rd or 4th liner
a 2nd and a good roster player (top 6 forward/top 4 dman), and a good prospect (but not 1st draftee's).
That's pretty much it. Ultimately it comes down to whether or not Bouw is going to resign, and there's a good chance that he doesn't resign with the club he's traded to, because all he needs to do is wait a couple months for ALL the options to come on the table. I don't think many clubs are going to trade away anything they would seriously regret losing for nothing. Especially in the case of contenders, the last thing they're going to do is remove 2-3 important roster players to bring in 1, that kind of loss in depth could hurt the chemistry of the team.
