I'd love to see the Sabres land Laraque and it would sell a ton of tickets. Sabres fans have been pining for a heavyweight enforcer since Larry Playfair left.

The Avs gave up Eric Messier and a blue chip prospect in Vaclav Nedorost for Peter Worrell and a second-round draft choice in 2004. Laraque's a better all around player than Worrell. Salary's a big concern for both teams as well.

The Oilers may be parting ways with Mike Comrie. I'm not interested in him coming to the Sabres as we have enough small centers. But the Oilers could be interested in a replacement for Comrie. Tim Connolly could be a fit there or maybe they'd be interested in Curtis Brown. Jason Smith ($2.3 mil) may be too expensive for the Oilers. Jay McKee would be a cheaper alternative. Smith's a rock on the right side. He's big and physical, and would be an ideal partner for one of our yound dmen. He turns 30 in November.

The basics of a deal could be:
Connolly+ McKee for Laraque + Smith
