We still have enough skill in the lineup. What is about a bit more toughness? Tootoo-Ott-Abdelkader as out 4th line? Whta would it take considering that Ott played 2nd line minutes last leason in Dallas?
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

He just got traded... I doubt he will be traded again so soon.

Edit: To actually address your question... I would love to have Ott on our team, as I think it's pretty obvious we are lacking in the grit department, even with Tootoo.

Definitely don't need 2 lightweight instigators, we need a true heavyweight

Godard, yeah? He and every other pure enforcer is not not on the ice in the play-offs. We need guys like Darren McCarty. Ott fits this well.

Traded? f***. Looks like I forgot.

We have too many bottom 6 forwards as it is.

We need a shutdown defenceman, and we could use a top 6 forward if possible, our bottom 2 lines will be made up of guys already on the roster.

No, I want them to trade for Yandle or Ryan. That is all we need. Ott would be nice if we weren't so loaded already in the bottom 6. But the only trade(s) I want to see is Yandle or Ryan...Haven't heard even a rumor ot Ryan, and barely one of Yandle...

That's because we'd have to part with a top six forward for either of them, and since we've only got arguably 4 or 5 legitimate top six forwards as is, there's pretty much no chance in hell we're going to move one.

Ott just got traded for a second line center so no way, he is getting traded again. Dallas ripped Buffalo a new one here.

we need a power forward to score/hit/fight not a one dimentional player. ott would sorta be ok...but he is not an option.

i would call this off-deason a huge success if we snatched evander kane.

but he, along with others, would cost us the farm, and the barn, and the saddles. (unless holland threw a nasty offer sheet)

so, we are stuck.
Dino Ciccarelli will always be #1

Ott's a D-bag that thinks he can push coaches around...no thanks.

I said true heavyweight not pure enforcer, a guy who can fight but can't play hockey is useless

To first answer the OP it would be nice yes, but I do also believe at this point we need something like Sheahan turning out to be the next Lucic...Holy crap that'd be awesome.
