For Pyatt, I could see the Canucks offering Buffalo:

Kirill Koltsov (an offensive/PPQ defenseman I would rate superior to Lupaschuck)
plus Buffalo's choice of:

N Smith (a 1st round pick that is struggling like Pyatt, but who could also still pan out)
or
B Ried (a small, but very skilled & quick forward)
I would take koltsov and ried for pyatt. I really like ried and koltsov has potential. The only problem i see with ried is that i am not sure the sabres need another small forward. I am growing impatient with pyatt. The vancouver proposal is definitely better than the pittsburg one. I would say no to the pitt prop.
