I'm sure it would get it done, if the Sens were the ones naming the terms. I can't possibly imagine Gainey agreeing to it, however.

And trading to an division rival is irrelevant in this case because (a) both are UFAs and (b) it's not like Montreal and Ottawa are competing to a playoff spot. In fact, Montreal has a lot more to lose by trading their young players to a division rival who could actually come back to haunt them. If Neil and Kuba both sign somewhere else, Ottawa's washed their hands clean of the deal.
