Miller to Philly at half price for 2013 2nd and conditional 2014 2nd if resigned

Stafford and #38 to Ottawa for #17

Ehrhoff, and 17 to Nashville for 4

At this point I would wait to see how the top 2 picks go. If it goes Jones/Mack then I would trade with Tampa to get Drouin.

#4 pick and 2 2014 2nd's

Sabres draft Drouin (replaces Vanek) at 3
Then BPA at 8, 16, and 24
A couple of things....first Ottawa would likely never go for the Stafford trade. He makes $4m and didn't produce last year.

No way Nashville gives up a chance to pick this high for an overpaid Erhoff and pick 17. I could see Vancouver making a deal like this IF Vanek resigns and my guess is he wants to see what the market is next summer (Wild). Doubtful they pay that much for a rental player.

Finally, I don't see how the Sabres can make these trades and reach the cap floor?
