, and while it scares the hell out of me, they're going to need a kid on an ELC earning his pay and carrying the load in place of one of those guys. If they deal one of McNabb or Pysyk, now Nino is stuck behind Pominville/Stafford and neck and neck with Armia on the depth chart prospect-wise -- it's not going to be all peaches for his camp -- and the Sabres are missing replacement depth for their older UFA d-men. Eh, kicking the tires is fine, but the pieces Snow would likely want aren't really making this a "oh yeah, we need that guy" sort of deal.
Pass for now. See what they have with their own kids. I have to admit, the thought of Armia and Grigorenko meshing is remarkably exciting.
fingers crossed! I hope they don't re-sign either.
Not that I want ELCs all over the lineup...
Nino interests me, only if Snow views the time as now... I mean, the Isles aren't a terrible team this year. They could dangle a high end prospect, that couldn't make the team, for NHL talent now.
I still don't see a match (since I'm a huge Sekera fan, and think he would be the type of centerpiece to a deal). Or I could see them looking to bolster their 2nd line (Stafford?)
Anyways... no reasons for Snow to swap prospects, or trade Nino at all... unless, he wants to make a win now type of trade (i dont mean win a cup, i mean, win games and make the playoffs)
