You want Vanek? Couturier ++. We don't want Matt Read or Gustaffson. You want our elite players we want your elite trade chips, not your B level prospects and players.

first off Vanek averages 68 points a season. So he isn't a "60" point winger. Second, he averages 35 goals a year and has the 10th highest gpg among active players. It's funny you berate Vanek and try to belittle his talent and production yet you want to trade for him . This trade proposal is terrible. You want Vanek and Myers? Start with Couturier and Brayden Schenn and keep adding . Don't even say Schenn and Couturier are worth more then Vanek AND Myers because they are not even close.
When was the last time in a salary cap era 2 young, emerging star players under 21 years old and younger (with small cap hits) were traded for two players combining for 12.6 mil cap hit? You overrate Vanek and Myers. This is not NHL13. Finances and cap hits play a huge part in making trades these days. There is a benefit for the Sabres freeing up close to 13 mil in salary.
