But in terms of value, I would ask for Leopold + Kassian + 1st.

Devils fans would probably ask for more and Sabres would offer less, but I think this is a fair package.
If the Sabres were in the playoff mix and the 1st was in the 20s, I'd reluctantly do that deal.

The toughest part to swallow would be giving up Leopold as I'd want him in the playoffs.

But, since the Sabres are out of the playoffs, it makes no sense to add Parise now.

The smart play is waiting until late June and trying to get his UFA rights to talk to him prior to 7/1 if the Devils can't get him signed to an extension.
