Satan Value/Buffalo possibilites....

With the Satan holdout and Buffalo's overflow at forward (in quantity, not quality), and buffalo's several big holes, just curious as to what the market is.

These are the players who, in my estimation, are expendable: Connoly, one of Dumont or Afinogenov, and Brown. Also, Zhitnik is going to be a UFA at the end of the season, so his value is highest now.

Some ideas:

Package Satan and Zhitnik for a young, somewhat cheap (3-4 million) #1 d-man and top notch prospect from a team who is looking to win the cup THIS season. they can dump the salary of Zhitnik after this season and can keep Satan long term.

Some ideas:

To Ottawa: Zhintik and Satan
To Buffalo: Redden and Schastlivy

Ottawa adds a dangerous 2 way sniper and Buffalo's blueline corps are much improved. Maybe toss in Connoly or a 2nd round pick from Buffalo to even it out, though, I don't know if this really helps the Sens cup chances.

To Buffalo: Jovonowski/Ohlund and Fedorov
To Vancouver: Satan and Zhintik.

Buffalo gets their #1 D-man, Vancouver gets great scoring from the 2nd line. Zhitnik takes over the #2 spot for whichever d-man Buffalo gets.
