Jame's omniscient, not omnipotent, and certainly not omlimpotent - he and Claire had a baby last year!!!!

Ok....so Jame doesn't like my deal proposal. How about something around Vanek + for Burmistrov and Byfuglien?
Vanek for Burmi and big-Buff is tilted too much in Sabres favor from a player-control perspective. Hence, Der Jaeger's post above.

I don't think Vanek is worth Burmistrov and Byfuglien unless Winnipeg is allowed to pre-trade negotiate with Vanek and has an extension deal in place. I think that's not likely, and may not even be possible under the new CBA (not a CBA guru).
Agreed.

Also, I'd do Stafford for Burmi, even up.
I have no qualms about Burmi, at his age, being "uncoachable" or needing "respect". It's not like Stafford has been coachable. He could be a 35 +/-5 goal mini power forward if he tried like he did in his pending FA year. I'll take the younger, "uncoachable" player with upside over the proven "underperforming" veteran, 6 days a week and 2x on Sunday.
