with methot, a healthy senators defense

methot - karlsson
cowen - gonchar
phillips - gryba/wiercioch

if gonchar leaves - oh poopy, we need a replacement. if phillips leaves (retires in a few years) - wiercioch - gryba bottom pair.
needs - replacement for gonchar

without methot -
cowen - karlsson
phillips - gonchar
wiercioch - gryba

needs - a new second pairing.

see why we won't trade methot? he fills a need for us. he's also really good. what would we trade him for? an upgrade? sure, but we can't really get that from edmonton. a downgrade? well, that leaves us down a top four defenseman. a forward? we could use another top six forward, but we'd still be down a defenseman that we need. goal scoring shouldn't be that big of a problem with karlsson and spezza back. the defense and goal-tending has been very good. everyone is clicking. the only moves we're looking to make involve adding a top four defenseman and adding a top six forward, not subtracting them.
