Value is fairly close also. Tarasenko may have higher offensive upside potential, but Zibanejad is a C, is big, and plays a very good 2 way game. His faceoffs improved as the year progressed, and he showed much higher hockey IQ than what he had been billed with.

Seems like a deal around these 2 guys (maybe a small + from the Sens) would be fair and address needs, but I'm not sure either GM would be willing to roll the dice with these guys.

Personally, I'm on the fence. Tarasenko would be an excellent acquisition, but Zibanejad is still so raw, it would be difficult to ship him out without first seeing him play a full NHL season.
How about both of our teams wait to see how well each does next season and we come back to this next off-season if needed.
