As a Pens fan, I like both of the concept of both of these trades but I don't know how likely they are to occur.

I'd be interested to hear from Sens and Yotes on these but I'd gather they want more in return in both instances.

I'd love to have Dvorak in Pittsburgh - they'd finally find their 3C they've been looking for all this time.

zucker sucks, he wouldn’t be in our top six lol, we’re not giving up a high end D prospect for a 5.5mil 3rd liner, and we’re not even interested in him as a cap dump. We’re specifically looking for a good, young top six centre in return for brannstrom anyway, which obviously pittsburgh doesn’t have

All of those 60 point players on Ottawa...

Zucker has hit 60 points exactly once, and it was 3 years ago. He was on pace for 39 points last year. He’s not better than C. Brown, Batherson, Tkachuk, or Stutzle, so he won’t get a shot in our top six. No interest in an overpaid, declining winger

Not at all lmao, not only is Batherson younger, bigger, more physical, and shoots right (an organizational weakness), but he’s also a better fit in terms of existing chemistry, upside, and likely to come in at a lower cap number for the next few years. Batherson was on a 50 point pace as a rookie, something Zucker has only done twice, and a mark he missed by 11 (pro-rated) points this year playing on a significantly better team. Batherson is so far ahead of Zucker that comparing them borders on insulting tbh
