To BUF : Nagy, Tanabe

Nagy I'd group similarly to Mara. On most teams he's not a top liner, but on the Yotes who are short on goalscoring, he's a first liner. He's demonstrated the ability to score a decent amount in the league, he's still got some offensive upside to him, and he's not a defensive liability. Right now there is very little reason to give him up, as he's the sort of player the Yotes are trying to keep/gain. You only deal him if you're upgrading, and neither Connolly or Afinogenov are upgrades over him. I don't know much about the prospect, but Dumont I like. I'd definitely be interested in a deal with Tanabe and Dumont being the centerpieces, but I think Yote management wants Tanabe for his mobility and offensive potential (want to give Coffey some time to work with him), so such a deal is doubtful.
