1) Ott is not a center. He's a winger who's good at faceoffs.
2) Buffalo says no. Ott is a well-liked vet in Buffalo. And he's definitely a big emotional leader on the team. The only time he gets traded is if it's the deadline and he's decided he won't re-sign here, which wouldn't help Edmonton's center situation now even if he played the position.

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
I'm sure Buffalo would love to deal Ott to add more players to an area of organizational strength without addressing any needs.
