Ott could generate decent trade value, much like what Paul Gaustad did at the deadline last year. Ott has a $2.95 million cap hit that will go through next year.

He is also a fan favorite with his popularity pegging about as high as Patrick Kaleta and Paul Gaustad when he was here.

Everyone on the roster is available at this point, but would you approve of a Steve Ott deal?
