The Sens won't be trading with Toronto any time soon, especially a deal focused around a former CHL player of the year who was sought after by the Leafs in the draft for another (arguably) 2nd line center (see Ottawa's centers: Spezza, Turris, Smith, O'Brien, Zibanejad, etc.).
See the post I just made. I wasnt arguing that Ottawa should be trading for bozak, and my comparison was to counter the argument that bozak wouldnt find a place in ottawa when clearly he would battle for #2 with turris. My argument was that toronto could be a 3rd wheel.
