Interesting you say this, because this is just what I was thinking. At the same time, I know that Couture isn't going anywhere, but to get either Michalek or Neil from Ottawa would take overpayment. That said, I would do Michalek + Neil for Couture as a Sens fan. I wouldn't add any more though. As others have said, Neil is, along with Alfie, the heart of the team, and the definition of a team guy and fan favourite. You don't see many 'grinders' like him with so many fans in the stands wearing his jersey often.

Michalek holds a little bit more value than Havlat.
Neil is worth more than Clowe + Murray (only as pending UFAs, and it would take an overpayment to move him)
Puempel is the pure winger prospect the Sharks are looking for.
Um, no from Ottawa :

Michalek > Havlat (and I love Marty)
Puempel = 2013 1st
Neil >> Clowe + Murray (both underperforming, and pending UFAs)
