Biron for a 4th... fair for both sides.

I will be absolutely stunned if Sutton gets a 2nd, let alone a prospect as well. I'll change my avatar to Andy Sutton for a month if he gets the Islanders that.

This is better. Still not sure if I'd do it from a Sabres' perspective, but it is much more reasonable than the original deal. I think Park could find a niche on our 4th line and I've always been a big fan of Trent Hunter. Biron would upgrade our backup spot and we wouldn't give up anything of immediate worth. This wouldn't be too bad, though I would much rather give up one of our multitude of puck-moving D prospects rather than Weber, who I expect to step into the lineup and fill a role after a great year so far in the AHL this year.

How about something built around Sutton and Hunter?

They could use a GOOD defenseman, something Witt hasn't been in years. Sutton might be of interest if they shuffle things around to land a forward and require a third pairing guy or #7. But even then...

Biron for a mid-rounder, depending on how Regier and Ruff feel about Lalime might work.

It is more like Biron for future consideration, waive Lalime and assign him to Portland. Biron is a healthy scratch. No one wants him. No one has tried to pick him up so Buffalo would be doing the Isles a favor just eating the rest of his contract.

Park, Witt, Tambellini offer the Sabres nothing. If they want to look for a veteran leadership and a puck moving defenseman like so many have talked about, I would rather see them try and pick up Recchi and Derek Morris. At least that helps them with some consistency on the power play.
