SJ gets a top line goal scoring winger which I've seen some posters saying is a need for the Sharks. Buffalo gets the physical presence they need and Pavelski as a versatile center/winger.
The Sabres definitely need help at center and Pavelski is a perfect fit but dealing their only goal-scoring winger in Vanek defeats the purpose of doing so - what's the point of having 3 great centers if they have no snipers on the wing to feed passes to? Clowe sure won't fill that need.

The Sabres would have to add to the package going to San Jose but a swap with Stafford and Pavelski as the principal pieces seems more fair. Most Shark fans note that they not only need wingers but ones with size - which Stafford has.
