  • McNabb looks solid in significant NHL action

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.
Foligno (along with Grigorenko) is untouchable....

in order to get him you would have to send back an established star player to even justify it from a PR standpoint.

As i and others have stated already....Marcus was born in Buffalo, NY...his father played for the Sabres and was captain and a big time fan favorite.

So for them to move Foligno it has to be a major wow type of trade.

As for sekera...he is a very good defenseman with a salary friendly contract. The only way he is moved is in a trade for a top 6 established player.

Lsich is aa 3rd line center at best...not much difference between him and others they have/could get at a much lower price.
