I don't think trading a solid forward prospect for a good defense prospect is a good idea. I think the Sens will have a strong blueline in the future, and I'm more confident in our future defense than our forward group.

Karlsson just won the Norris at age 21
Cowen looks like he'll develop into a rock solid defensive D, perfect partner for EK
Ceci should be a top 4 defenseman one day, his defense needs work but there's no denying his skill, and its in a 6'3, 215lbs body
Methot is still young enough, could be a good bottom pairing defenseman
Wiercioch and Borowiecki are solid d prospects that will get a look as soon as the lockout ends
Couple other guys like Sdao, Wikstrand, Claesson realistically have NHL potential as well

Defense isn't going to be the weakness on this team. Filling out our top 6 will be the difficult part. Hopefully some of the forward prospects you listed will pan out. I don't think we should be trading guys like Prince or Puempel when our top 6 is by no means set for the future.
