This is particularly acute on the first PK face-off.

Line-up juggle:
Hartnell Giroux Jagr
Voracek Schenn Briere
Read Couturier Simmonds
Talbot Gaustad Zolnierczyk/Rinaldo/Shelley

Laviolette could even give Jagr a few games off to settle his injuries and go with:
Hartnell Giroux Voracek
Simmonds Schenn Briere
Read Couturier Zolnierczyk
Talbot Gaustad Rinaldo/Shelley

I'm a big fan of the Gaustad idea, for this year and next, assuming Buffalo isn't asking for the moon.

I'd go with Sestito (gives Sabres size back) + 2nd for Gaustad.
There's a glaring lack of JvR in your lines. Though I assume you were proposing those lines as if we acquired him today. Then Zolnierczyk or Rinaldo would be out of a lineup spot when he returns. Can a team be too deep? I'd also look to see if BUF would add a guy like Gragnani to the trade. I have no idea what the asking price would end up being though...Might be someone like Read + pick(s)?
