Many of the posts on this topic come from (naturally) a what's best for the Sabres (i.e; minimize the impact, fair value, etc.) emphasis. Sherman cannot afford to get fleeced again. The hate here for him (and Sacco and LaCroix) exceeds that expressed towards Ruff/Regier.
That's the thing... usually most Sabres fans are willing to throw in the usual scrubs or underperformers in most deals, but not much of value.

But for ROR? I've seen mostly offers are ARE good deals, at least considering what other teams fans have been offering.

Offering the likes of two of Ennis, Sekera, Armia and Girgs? No fleecing there and that's a little uncharacteristic of Sabres fans as a whole, but shows how badly he's desired.
