I don't think either team would be too happy for this.

For Ottawa, Jeffrey could be a reasonably good NHL'er but he's not as good as Michalek. Kuhn and the 2nd round pick are 3+ years away from contributing, if at all. So this trade is a big time net setback in the immediate future.

For Pittsburgh, this is a team that doesn't have a ton of assets in the form of skilled wingers. Giving up a cheap player just breaking into the NHL, plus a good prospect and a relatively high pick is a lot of assets to spare...Especially for a guy with a bit of an injury history.
