The last few conversations with Buffalo management and timing of the meeting would leave me surprised at zero information. Why call a presser at all then, unless you have something to say? The only negative thing that could happen, in my opinion, is if they realize that the City of Buffalo is in trade-up-mania, which arguably was started and fueled by them, and attempt to defuse expectations by claiming that "playing it safe" is the best move (which I disagree with).
Here's what I want the opening line to be: "Good Morning. We're here today to announce the completion of a trade for the rights to the 1st overall pick in this year's draft". (However we got there)
