From a trade standpoint, we'll keep him for this year for sure, maybe even 2014. The Jets would need a top 4 d-man to replace Buff's minutes, if we were to deal him. I don't see this move taking place anytime soon, since we'd need to build up our prospects in our system and develop them to the point that they could replace players on the roster (not currently there). The Jets are wanting to compete for a playoff spot as soon as possible. Moving Buff right now doesn't do that.

Now as a value of thread...

A) A single player with equal value (top pairing D, top 6 RW)

B) A top 4 defender + top prospect + 1st rounder.

Most fans would prefer option A, since we think we should be competing for the playoffs right now. A quantity for quality trade doesn't help us currently.
