What might happen is he deals them, then flips those assets for another player. But you can guarantee hes not coming out of the trade deadline with a weaker lineup then when he went in.

As for trade speculation, its the media. Theres trade speculation for Daniel Alfredsson, despite his team being in 5th and playing remarkable well. Its absurd to think the Sens are going to move him.
Definitely. He is not going to trade assets away that could help in a playoff run. Same reason why Nj didnt trade parise and why alfie wont be traded.

I don't think losing Bozak/Mac is going to be a big loss going forward anyway.
