I don't think Stastny is going anywhere though.
Liles could generate some interest from the Sabres, I don't know how much, but he is reportedly good friends with Miller and since Lalime (who was reportedly kept on with presuasion from Miller) will be leaving, I can see something getting done there.

Would Liles go for a 2nd rounder as reported by Dreger? I don't know.
Perhaps a deal could be worked out, but to put it into perspective, that kind of deal would be akin to Colorado offering David Jones, one of Kyle Quincey/Ryan Wilson, prospect Stefan Elliot, and St. Louis' first round pick (in either 2011 or 2012) for Tyler Myers. Colorado would be offering some nice, solid players, but I have no doubt that Buffalo would'nt seriously consider that offer. Not to mention that every player and prospect mentioned that Buffalo proposal is an RFA after this season and will require negotiating a new contract.

The players that Colorado may have the most interest in (Miller/Myers) would be untouchable from the Sabres' viewpoint. It is the same old same old on these boards, every team wants to acquire a star player but they expect a trade package that doesn't include any of their best players or prospects to be enough.

In the real world, if you want to get, you have to give. The Avs have absolutely no reason to deal Statsny unless they receive young core talent in return. The only potential player in that proposal that comes close is Enroth, and Enroth's ceiling has to be questioned IMO due to his small stature.
