Maybe in a vacuum (and that's questionable, too), but it's not enough to send him to a division rival. Gallagher may turn into a nice player--he likely won't maintain this pace, obviously--but why does Buffalo want to acquire another 5'8'' player when we already have Ennis and Gerbe? We're not trying to build a sideshow hockey team. Beaulieu is a good prospect, but he's just more of what Buffalo already has in its system (even if a better version): mobile, puck-moving defenseman. The Sabres, right now, are more interested in a Tinordi-type. Finally, the 1st rounder is enticing, especially if Montreal starts losing, but the other pieces make it a no-go.

I think if Buffalo moves Vanek prior to the expiration of his contract, it's to a Western Conference team, anyways. Regier won't keep him in the division.
