Ottawa would look damn nice after this trade though, and i think it definitely makes tampa a better team.

Heater-Spezza-Alfie
Foligno-Fisher-Shannon/Zubov/other
Winchester-Regin-Artyukhin
Ruutu-Bass-Donovan
Schubert

Phillips-Volch
Kuba-Picard
Lee-Campoli
Mihalek

if auld can then be dealt we would have plenty of room to sign a top-6 forward, but due to future salary constraints i dont see us hitting the UFA market this summer anyways (unless Melnyk makes a push for it to try to get fans to forget this season, but we could then end up in a chicago situation next offseason).
I think Tocchet is giving Arty one more year to prove he can actually play hockey other than hit hard and skate fast, so its doubtful hes moved, esp for someone like Smith.
