I'd take Horcoff, but I'd want no more than $3.5m of his salary, and I'm not sure Edmonton would want $2m of dead money on its books for the next three seasons.

I like Jones, and there's little doubt that Buffalo could use his jam and competitiveness in the bottom-6. But I peg Leopold's value to be around what Oduya got at last year's trade deadline: a 2nd and a 3rd. (Say nothing for the fact that Leo is considerably better than Oduya.) Do I think Jones could bring back that haul at the deadline? Probably not. So I'd probably just rather hold on to Leopold until prices soar at the deadline, especially if there are as few sellers as last year, and I imagine there will be given the condensed season. It's not that I hate the offer, I just want to maximize Leopold's value.
