They might be in fire sale mode, but who wants Myers, Leino or Erhoff's contract. No chance.

They wouldn't want to move their young pieces just yet, as they are a few years away from making a playoff run. So I can't see them being a trading partner with the Jets.
Erhoff's contract wouldn't be that bad though would it? The Sabres have already paid the bulk, and he has a 4 million dollar hit until he is 38. The actual dollars actually go down starting at 35 too. And I think only the Sabres are on the hook for a penalty if he retires early?

He may not be the physical guy we want on the second pair, but if the Jets could fit 4 million bucks on the roster (could at the deadline), a top 4 of Enstrom and Erhoff on the left, and Buff and Bogo on the right sounds pretty decent.

Not sure what it would take though. A 1st plus a roster player?

We do need more offense, but between Vanek and Erhoff, I would rather us be after Erhoff I think.
