Carolina - Ottawa

It seems like in the next 24-48 hours either Vermette or Meszaros will no longer be a Senator.. as they will either be traded or offered an offersheet..

To Ottawa: Erik Cole +

To Carolina: Andrej Meszaros

Carolina gets a young good Offensive D-man who is also pretty responsible in his own end, something I think Carolina is looking for as I hear they are looking to trade for Joni Pitkanen..

Ottawa gets a rugged winger that would look awesome on their Second line a top two line up of..

Foligno/Vermette - Spezza - Heatley
Cole - Fisher - Alfredsson

would be arguably the best top two lines in the league, (A Cole/Fisher combo would be immense and very annoying for a team to play against.)

we will have a defence of

phillips-vochenkov
lee (rookie) - schubert (no experience)
scrubs?

this is why i'm in favor of trading vermette, not meszaros.

I wouldn't do Cole+ for Meszaros and I personally have no interest in helping the sens get any better. They still have the potential to be a very good team so I'd rather trade out of conference.

What would the "plus" be anyways?

The thought of Cole feasting on the Habs 8 times a year makes me want to drive my fist through my stomach.

Obviously, depends on what exactly the "+" turns out to be, but I'm in favor of a Cole-for-Meszaros framework. IMO, what Andrej lacks in offensive ability in comparison to Pitkanen, he makes up for in his ability to stay healthy and actually take part in games.

Having said that, I think Carolina is really dead-set on shipping Cole out of the conference. I don't really care. I'd do the deal, as long is you're not hoping for a No. 1 pick with Cole.

I am not sure what would needed to be added to Carolina's side to make it even as I do not know their prospects well, so I added the +

If Cole gets traded it'll be to the West. Carolina and Ottawa just don't make good trading partners at this time.

Seems pretty fair, but Ottawa would have to trade Vermette for a defenceman and sign another one, a tall order.
