I think you are overreacting here. Why exactly is he garbage? The only difference between Ott and Rinaldo or Sestito (or even Simmonds) is that he agitates better, and plays hockey better, at least in the case of Rinaldo and Sestito. They guy is a mile a minute like Rinaldo, is tough, talks ****, hits hard, and can play hockey. What's not to like? He got in a pissing contest with Lavy? Big deal. He isn't like Avery in terms of his on-ice antics (constantly diving, goading people into fights then turtling up, running his mouth about people's girlfriends, etc). He fills the same role, but does it better and does so in a more "sportsman" way. Ott would be an excellent Flyer. But, as has been noted, I'd say it is unlikely he winds up here at the deadline because of his cap-hit and NTC.
