Ottawa gets a young puck mover that they desperatley need.
Florida gets Vermette and Kelly who played well with Stillman, for some scoring depth, and Phillips solidifies ther blueline.
For this deal to work Bouwmeester is either signed or has agreed to sign before trade
Flame away
Ottawa gives up
- a top-4 D-man, when we arguably only have 3 of those right now and project to have 2 next season.
- a top-6 forward, when we have 5 of those right now... and many would debate that.
- a 3rd line center who is good enough all-round to anchor a line with 4th line wingers to make it a 3rd line.

After seeing Campbell's contract, I don't want to touch Jay-Bo with a 10-foot-pole. He's quickly becoming one of the most overrated players in the league simply because he's a UFA. He (and Campbell for that matter) have never sniffed a Norris and might never... and they're going to make $7M+? Not on my team. He'd make more than Phillips and Vermette combined.
