Ott was Buffalo's #1 used player last year, he isn't getting dealt for injury prone Hemsky regardless of how much of his salary you keep.
Ott and Hemsky are different players, Ott was added I think when Buffalo felt like they'd be gearing up for playoff runs and needed center depth.
But since drafting Grigorenko and Grigsens and possibly heading into a rebuild, he may be expendable.
There was also the whole thing where he got into a media thing with the fanbase which leads me to think his time there is nearing an end.
I'll grant you we may have to add.
