If either of the above proposals went through we would be a worse team
If they want to win the cup sometime soon, they do need a number one center.

Roy is solid. But look at the centermen for the past few cup winners

Boston- Kreji, Savard (injured), Bergeron, Seguin, Kelly, Peverly

Chicago- Toews, Sharp, Bolland

Pittsburgh- Crosby, Malkin, Staal

Detroit- Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Filppula

Anaheim- Getzlaf, McDonald

Carolina- Staal

Tampa Bay- Lecavalier, Richards

The only team without an ELITE center was Boston, and they had Savard who was injured, but also had amazing depth at center and played a suffocating defensive style. You need elite centers to win the cup. The Sabres NEED an elite center. Even if it is a massive overpayment.

Getzlaf (26 years old), Eric Staal(27), Ryan Kesler (27), Niclas Backstrom (24), Zetterberg (31). I feel Jordan Staal (23) will be on this level. Let's not forget, he's got about 4 more seasons to develop into the type of players these guys are. And he will. These are the guys I'm looking at. Yes, no one wants to trade the "best player" in a trade, but in every trade, one team does trade the "best player" in the deal.

Roy is good, but he's not on the level of these other guys.
