Two Sabres Trade Offers That Were Rejected
The Sabres Observer has learned from a contact within the league that Dean Lombardi was given a prime opportunity to acquire Jason Pominville, but the Kings GM would've needed to part with highly touted prospect Tyler Toffoli to do so. It's not known if other players or draft picks were involved.
As was mentioned by The Fourth Period on Thursday, Lombardi wasn't going to give up a talent like Toffoli for a player with only one year left on his contract.
What about Drew Stafford, who many pegged as being a goner from Buffalo by deadline day?
Regier almost had a trade lined up with Columbus, who apparently were the only team willing to part with a first-round pick (preferrably the one they received from L.A.) for the struggling but talented forward. It's believed the Sabres would've also included another pick or prospect to make it work.
When an opportunity came to acquire Marian Gaborik, the Blue Jackets decided to go big and deal for the Rangers winger instead.
