I'd love to acquire Ott. Not only does he act as a top 6 stopgap and bring toughness, but he can play in a 3rd line checking role at wing beside Gordon when RNH/Gagner come back. The Sabres are going into a rebuild and I'm sure Ott could be had, as Marcus Foglino appears to be developing into the same player. The price would be steep though, could the Oil acquire him without giving up their 2014 1st?

To Buffalo:
David Musil/Martin Gernat+2015 2nd

To Edmonton:
Steve Ott

Another deal that makes a lot of sense is Schultz the elder for Johnny Malkin. The Avs roster is devoid of proven NHL calibre dmen (EJ/Hejda are the only ones with experience that aren't a liability), and Mitchell won't be seeing top 9 minutes anytime soon with Duchene, ROR, Stasnty, and MacKinnon.

To Colorado:
Nick Schultz+2014 4th

To Edmonton:
John Mitchell+2014 3rd
