I'm think of this being more of a hockey trade with someone like Bortuzzo being the sweetener needed to make up the difference between Letestu and a capable #5 defenceman. Think Goligoski for Neal+Niskanen on a smaller scale.

If the blue somehow becomes overstuffed by the deadline that's a good thing. The price of defencemen only goes up as the year progresses so flipping Niskanen or Lovejoy wouldn't be a problem. And in the event someone like Kunitz has a season ending injury the LTIR space solves any cap issues.
