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

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:




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.
That's quite a bit of value for Pomnville. Tallinder is not worth much to us right now, but could net a second round pick based on the trades we've seen.

So, a 1st, 2nd, and Merrill/Severson for Pominville? Sabres just might have to take that.
