In that scenario, which you clarified (previously, you coyly only mentioned "swapping picks")... the Sabres weren't parting with McNabb to get Bailey... they were doing it to move up to get a player like Grigorenko/Galchenyuk.

save us the arch deluxe routine...

Other Sabres fans liked the idea of a Bailey/McNabb deal with a pick swap pre-draft. I sheepishly thought an idea like that could be reconsidered, especially if 2013 #2 comes back to us if the Visnovsky trade is voided. I was under the impression that maybe your two first round centers might not be quite ready for prime time.
So, you are offering the Islanders 2013 1st round pick for McNabb? Otherwise, I don't understand how you so grossly misunderstood the previously discussed deal involving the #4 overall pick
