With the sens D playing as poorly (compared to how well it could) as it is, it may be time to trade for that 6th top-4 D-man. Pothier or Hnidy (or both) would have to go to the Isles plus say Shastlivy and a pick/prospect.
Earlier this season, I offered McEachern to the Isles for Aucoin. I was argued into the ground. Aucoin is the Isles #2 Dman, therefore the Isles will demand more in return. Shast or Pothier (and that pick/ prospect) are quantity, but not quality.
Therefore I think you may have to starting modeling a deal with Aucoin coming to OTT and Phillps going to the Island. Okay okay tough choice, but IMO Aucoin is one of the NHL's better defensemen.
