Perhaps Columbus gets interested as they have a lot of younger guys, many with a lot of upside, and the Johansen-Niederreiter combo has done well in the past? Nino's got very little leverage and the Isles really have no need to move the kid.
If that's the case, I doubt the Sabres do it. Devil you know and all...

I agree that Pysyk as the centerpiece likely does not get it done. And that's why it'd come down to how they feel about McNabb. If they see him as the big, physical top-4 defenseman they're sorely lacking, maybe they consider with him as the centerpiece.
