Pominville is exactly the kind of player we need, i really cannot fathom why Buffalo wants to part ways with him. He would be a tremendous replacement for Parise both in terms of production and leadership, assuming we aren't one of the eight teams on his no-trade list (i can't see why we would be) i certainly hope Lou kicks the tires on acquiring him.

Pominville - Henrique - Kovalchuk
Elias - Zajac - Zubrus
Ponikarovsky - Loktionov - Clarkson
D'Agostini - Carter - Bernier
Gionta/Kostopoulos

Our forward group would once again be one of the deepest in the league, incredibly solid third and fourth lines with the right amount of high end talent in the top six.

I wonder what Buffalo would want for him though? Surely if they're selling Pominville they're looking to get some picks and prospects in return; perhaps they'd take Tallinder back too considering his previous chemistry with Myers and the fact Regehr is likely to be moved at the deadline as well?

Maybe a deal around:

To

Pominville

To

Tallinder
1st Round Pick
Merrill / Severson

Surely that would get the ball rolling at least? Tough price to pay but i'd do it for Pominville.
