Ott doesn't really fit the mold as he's no where near good enough to be a top liner, yet too good to come cheaply. But he's good at faceoffs and would add some needed sandpaper so I could see Calgary at least inquiring about him.
Also, just knowing how the Flames operate they'll probably grab Regehr, Leopold and Pardy from you.
1st + good young 4th liner. Maybe more. Buffalo really has no incentive to trade him given their organizational dearths of physical players, defensive forwards, natural leaders and faceoff specialists and the extra year on his deal.
Stafford and pretty much the entire blueline are the most obvious guys on the block. Maybe they get crazy and move Vanek/Poms/Miller, but that's something that'll go down on deadline day with absolutely no warning.
