Would Buffalo be interested in a trade built around Brooks Laich and Tom Wilson for Andrej Sekera and Marcus Foligno? A pick would likely be added from Washington. Laich would solidify Buffalo's 2nd or 3rd line center position and has plenty of term remaining (and can switch to wing if/when Grigorenko and Girgensons pan out). Wilson (1st round pick 2012, having a PPG+ year in Plymouth), though not on par with Foligno nor as developed, provides Buffalo with a power forward prospect.
I'm pretty sure that deal doesn't net you Foligno alone.......not to mention our second-third most valuable d-man. So I'm going to go ahead and say lolno.
Foligno is probably more untouchable then Grigorenko at this point.
