Obviously Buffalo is really high on Foligno and probably won't give him up so here we are...
I could be coerced to deal Foligno in a larger package, but I would deinaitely want a guy like McGinn coming back which probably makes the deal nearly a wash... Would rather hang onto Marcus though...

I don't blame you for asking for some value for Stastny; again, some posters don't understand that he doesn't have negative value despite the contract. I just feel too many of the Sabre fanbase is wanting to make a panic trade five games into the season.
Aquiring the top-6 centre we have been missing for 2yrs (due to injuries to Roy, decline of Connolly) or so is not really a 'panic trade'. We knew Ennis as a #2C was a gamble, and in this case it isn't working out as well as hoped. We also gambled on Leino and lost - it is time to bet on a safer horse at a bit steeper price IMO.

Buffalo needs a top-6 centre whether it is Stastny or someone else.
