The New Jersey Devils love having Simon Nemec. They selected him with the second overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft, and his development has been top notch since then. 

The Slovakian defenseman was called up during the 2023-24 season after Dougie Hamilton hit the injured list with a torn pectoral muscle. He ended up missing the rest of the season following the November 30th injury. He not only stayed on the team, but he also became one of their top two defensemen. 

The Ottawa Senators would love to add a prospect like that. If there was one realistic player that the Senators might let go in a one-for-one deal for Tkachuk, it is Nemec. He would improve their future on the blue line right away. 

Is it worth it for the Devils? They might think so with Dougie Hamilton, Luke Hughes, and Seamus Casey there. It would be a big hit to their blue line but Brady Tkachuk brings something that they don’t have. It is worth considering.
