<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Claebom</b></div><div>I think the only part of it that Ottawa balks at is the James Neal portion. They love Connor Brown (for a good reason), and Neal just isn't good any more. With Dadonov falling off a cliff for them, it's hard to justify taking on another winger who is on the wrong side of 32 and crumbling away. Positionally, Neal doesn't crack their top 4 left wingers. He's below Tkachuk, Stützle, and Paul, and they will want to play Formenton. He also doesn't crack their top 4 right wingers. He's below Batherson, will play below newly acquired JP, will get fewer chances than Dadonov, and will not get in over Watson who is a lock on their 4th line. That's not enough to take on a guy who doesn't crack their lineup.
Otherwise, yeah. Sens would say yes to the Tierney "part", and would likely be good with the Dzingel/Gudbranson return. Just don't see them being willing to part with Connor Brown unless it's an overpay, and certainly not with Neal coming back.</div></div>
Agree. Neal is too ****ing much of an anchor.
