Stefan plus Atlanta's first rounder (#10 overall) is intriguing, but Buffalo is not a rebuilding team and cannot afford to downgrade at the center position. If Briere is traded to Atlanta, Savard has to come back... and since they are quite similar, one has to ask why Buffalo would bother?

Besides, while one smallish scoring center is fine, Atlanta might be wary of having two on their two scoring lines.
No I didn't reason out Buffalo's team needs in making the deal. Thats why i asked at the start of the thread for proposals that were reasonable to both sides.

From what i've read how bout
Exelby+Stefan+1st for Briere+McKee??
