I would also add the Sabres do not just need picks and prospects - they will need a couple of vets and may be able to get the right guys in trade.
As bad as Rivet has been, he is going to be an asset in demand at the deadline. A right handed veteran defensemen with a ton of playoff experience is exactly what younger, playoff bound teams are going to look to add.

Will he bring much in return ? No... but a mid round pick is certainly likely. IMO

If the Sabres are out of it... which is the likely scenario... I could see a lot of our veteran UFA assets being of interest to other teams.

Connolly(2ND/3RD), Niedermayer (5TH/6TH), and Rivet(3RD/4TH) should ALL be traded at the deadline.

Grier has a no trade clause.. which hopefully he waives.

Montador is the one debatable guy, as the Sabres should be looking to extend him. But if he isn't... then trade him too.
