I threw Nemisz in the mix as a bigger bodied center that needs a better opportunity then he is getting in Abbotsford, he could be swapped out for another player, hence the 'Value Of' title to the thread.
Akim Aliu, Dustin Sylvester, Ben Street are also younger players who can play both wing and center.
He isnt going to get it in Buffalo.
buffalo really doesnt need a center right now unless its a short term rental who provides veteran leadership. They have Ennis, Hodgson, and Grigorenko.
Absolutely they are marketing Leopold because they have no plans on signing him next year (unless they deal Regehr, or Sekera) given they have at least 5 NHL ready Dmen in their system waiting to get a shot. the one they would make an effort to keep is Regehr who is a UFA after this season.
They want to use their Dmen to improve up front on the wings or getting a veteran center either being a UFA after this year or next year.
