3rd rd. '13, becomes '14 2nd if Ottawa makes playoffs this season.
Basis with of the trade is McBain for Greening+, extra pieces have been added to replace depth and even the value. Carolina has an in-house replacement in Sanguinetti, Ottawa could use PP help on the back end and someone to eat up some of Karlsson's minutes.
Greening is a big, fast versatile forward who can contribute in a variety of ways. He has struggled a bit offensively this year but can be a half a point per game type guy, a top 9 forward who can help out even when he's not scoring.
McBain has been pretty good. Better defensively than I was expecting and chips in quite a bit offensively. Unfortunately, if we let him go, then Sanguinnetti is playing and that is a problem. You will see tonight, because Sangs has to be in due to Pitkanen injury and possibly Gleason injured as well.
