I would think a pick would be more appealing for the Sens. He was a free pick-up, and they already have an excess of players entering into the pro ranks this and next year. The reason to trade Da Costa would be to give him a fair chance (I believe he can play on the NHL, not with Ottawa due to their young center depth) and to create room for the prospects coming into the AHL to develop. Getting a pick gives them time to develop the guys now, and give time for another new guy 2-3 years down the road.
