That's fine, I wasn't looking for inexpensive but a certain stylistic fit. That said, I doubt Stafford is involved in any deal at this point from a Sabre POV. His final 22 game recall after the Afinogenov injury were simply outstanding (11 goals, 11 assists, 3 GWG's). I honestly don't know if Buffalo would be interested in Jackman -- Regier is an obstinant GM and I can see him clinging to his current squad composition as it moves toward compost. Namely, the lack of a banger on the blueline and it's creampuff consistency.

There are several Blues who stand out as the footsoldier types Buffalo seems to need at the moment -- Salvador, Hinote, and Mayers -- beyond just the rekindled interest in Jackman. It seems these two teams could make decent trade partners.
