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.
I agree that there is no reason for Colorado to trade him, but Myers value >>> Statsny. It's not a comment on their abilities or their personality or the color of their hair or anything, but it's the simple fact that a potential cornerstone franchise defenseman has greater value than a potential franchise center.
