Zack Smith, Curtis Lazar, Matt Puempel, Mark Borowiecki to Rangers

Del Zotto, Brassard and Boyle to Senators..

Rangers get some youth in Puempel and Lazar (former first round pick), some nastiness on defense in Borowiecki and some grit and PK ability in Smith 25 years old younger and grittier and can score more than Boyle...
If we are getting better players, why does Ottawa, a team on a budget, do this deal unless we retain salary? What does and RFA like Del Zotto and Brassard give them? Brass would be their 3 as well, behind Spezza and Turris. Del Zotto is top 4 for them, but will he ask for 4 milli on plus from them, once again, a budget team? Zach Smith, a controllable asset for a UFA to be Boyle? Two first round forward prospects a budget team needs?

If Ottawa and the Rangers make a deal it will be NHL player for NHL player. We may have to retain salary to make it happen. These trades where teams looking for a shakeup where we get prospects will not happen. Only contenders deal prospects for players like this or picks. Ottawa last I saw had less points than us. Why do they deal future assets when that will be what they try and bring in if they sell off pieces?
