I don't see Bobby Ryan being so good that you get better by overpaying for him.

I would trade the entire "old" Rochester core (van, roy, poms, miller)... along with as many non buffalo prospects as it took ... for Ryan and Jstaal....

Miller, Roy, Nash 1st
for
Ryan, Hiller

Pominville, Adam, Pysyk
for
Staal

Vanek
for
Tuomo Ruutu

Leopold
for
2nd

sign Parise
sign Suter
sign McClement
sign Sulzer


Parise-Staal-Ryan
Leino-CoHo-Ruutu
Foligno-Ennis-Stafford
Gerbe-McClement-Kaleta/McCormick
x Ellis

Suter-Myers
Sulzer-Ehrhoff
Sekera-Regehr
x Weber

yay!
not small
Vanek for Ruutu? Seriously? The cap savings is nice, but Ruutu is a lesser Dustin Brown who costs more. Almost $5M per against the cap for a guy that has averaged less than 20 goals a year over the past four years. No thanks.

I'd try and keep Pominville to play with Staal. I'd likely replace Pominville with Armia as the Pens might not want Pominville's contract.

And IF you need to overpay for BRyan, how does Anaheim ever go for that deal? Hiller is a cheaper Miller and Roy+1st is overpaying for Ryan????

And there is no way the Sabres land Suter AND Parise. Not even in NHL13.
