Monstrous rumor sending Brady Tkachuk to Florida

We saw this last summer with the deal that sent Jonathan Huberdeau to Calgary for Matthew Tkachuk. The Quebecer was coming off the best season of his career, so it took courage to make the trade, and it paid off for them.
Bill Zito could well repeat the experience this year, according to Paul Bissonnette. The rumour comes from Ottawa, and Brady Tkachuk would be traded for Aleksander Barkov. One captain for another.
The Senators would probably come out ahead in this deal. I love Brady Tkachuk and regret every day that the Habs preferred Jesperi Kotkaniemi, but let's be honest, Barkov is a more complete player than the younger of the Tkachuk brothers.
