Apparently some people got hit with a dumb stick in here.
#1 Pominville > J. Staal. Pominville produced a 30goal (more than Staal ever scored in a season) 73 point season as a Captain. He was the most consistent player year round for the Sabres. Staal produced at a lesser pace on the 2ND line for Pittsburgh. Thinking that the is the solution to the Sabres is dumbfounded. He'll be paid higher than Roy and be less productive! A new contract would hinder the Sabres for years.
#2 Sekera is going no where. Yes the SAbres may be loaded at D but if you think Darcy has forgotten how valuable #7 and #8 defensemen are you're crazy. Myers, Sekera, Ehrhoff, McNabb will be our top 4 for years to come.
#3 Parise will not being signing in Buffalo (so no Parise - Staal - Ryan line)
#4 Staal will be moved unless he takes a discount. The Pens just signed Neal for 6 years (30 million)... combine that with Malkin and Crosby and there is very little room to sign the rest of the team (24 million invested in 3 players)
