I could see Howson doing a little housekeeping and getting rid of a defenseman who has value but isn't fitting into Arniel's system. If Holden or someone like Clitsome could be a 7th defenseman and fill-in when necessary, and the Jackets could get something in return they need, then it's a good move.

Personally, I would say Tyutin since he seems expendable. It's not like he's doing poorly, but he seems replaceable.

But what do the Jackets need? The Jackets are set with bottom 6 forwards. They have plenty of 4-6 defensemen. They could use an upgrade on top tier players. But I'm not sure why the Sens would give up the type of player the Jackets need unless they're absolutely desperate for defensive help.
