The average age of Jokinen (32), Staios (37), and Mikkleson (23) is 30 years

The average age of Kovalev (37) and Lee (23) is 30 years old as well.

Lee has only played in 7 games so far. Staios has played in 14 games, Mikkleson in 20games. A straight up trade of between Mikkleson and Lee only works in Ottawa's favour (IMO), but a straight up trade between Kovalev and Staios + Jokinen probably works in Calgary's favour, but two players for one is arguable. Calgary would make this trade because Sutter likes his hockey players to be "top-6" guys that are eligible to draw a pension, and as mentioned, Flames need a winger over a centre. I'm not sure if Ottawa would make this trade because they too need a winger over another centre, but they also need a stay-at home defenseman since they've lost Volchenkov.
