There's a good argument for Ottawa helping TO with that Marleau Contract. It's high in cap hit, but low in actual Salary, it adds a much needed veteran presence to what is a largely young inexperienced team, and they can add picks to keep aiding the rebuild.
That said, I'm not doing this deal. Paul is an ideal depth piece for Ottawa's future. Big, fast, Strong, and a strong defensive player to boot. He's by no means a star, but he's a solid Depth player who Ottawa should hold onto.
Sens also shouldn't be giving an offsetting pick. Drop both prospects as well as Gaborik, and leave just the 2nd going to Ottawa, or maybe something like A 3rd and a middling prospect like engvall.
