I need to know more about McNabb but as it stands sounds good for Buffalo. They could use some centers and that is a high second.

Then again Brule is an injury prone center and Sabres probably want to distance themselves from those.

And the sad part a Oil fan posted this not a chance I dont get hyped on a overage player having a good year stats wise it is expected for a 20 year old dman with 5 years in the dub.

A big no thanks from Edmonton. We got a hell of a steal in Pitlick with 31st overall last year and I don't see Edmonton moving that pick unless they're getting something significant or unless they're moving up in the draft.

As for Brule... could he possibly have had a worse year? I think Edmonton will hang onto him for one more year. I feel really bad about how this guy was handled. Columbus was crazy to have him playing up in the NHL at such a young age.

I'm sure Edmonton wouldn't mind peddling him off for a 4th rounder if there's something decent left... but otherwise it doesn't really make sense to mention him in trade proposals.

He's not an overage player.

And I'd rather not trade one of our top prospects for an injury prone player and a high 2nd rounder, who'll need years to develop.

Your opinion, don't really see where the sad part comes in, I happen to call this a fair proposal, maybe move down to Buffalo's 2nd but that would seem unlikely.

Every 20 yr old dman is expected to lead his team to the memorial cup while finishing 2nd in scoring in the whl playoffs? You can only hope that 1st round pick turns out as good as McNabb.

Buffalo says no.

Take out the 2nd from the Oil and McNabb from Buffalo and then talk.

Mcnabb is the principal player in the deal

McNabb is worth more to the Sabres than a 2nd rounder. Brule could be had with a 3th or something similar in a seperate deal, so I don't see any need to give up McNabb for a pick.

Then offer better than a part-time 4th liner who may have upside but is looking like a bit-part on a bad team.

I like Mcnabb but no, 2nd is more than enough considering his deficiencies, very slow ala plante, can't deny his offensive spark but he needs work before he plays a pro game

If you're not convinced, then don't make a trade proposal involving him. A 2nd is simply not enough.

I think a second would be enough if Buffalo wanted to deal... but there is no impetus for them to make this trade. Unless they're addressing bigger needs, I don't see them shopping one of their best prospects coming off a stellar season to get up into the top of the 2nd round this year. It doesn't fit their stated goals.

Because you disagree I shouldn't make a proposal? This proposal based on history is quite realistic, project prospect for a 2nd or 3rd plus a warm body

Which Buffalo wouldn't be interested in, so drop it.

Unrelated topic to my legendary proposal of awesomeness and fairness too all parties involved is Mcnabb signed or does he go back into the draft if not signed in 18 days?

As every Sabres fan stated in this thread, the Sabres won't trade him for a pick unless it's an overpayment which a 2nd is not. It's not about his fair value, it's about needs and they need him more than some futures. You saying it's enough doesn't consider any needs the Sabres have which is to contend now and not in 5 years. McNabb is a potential partner for Myers or more realistically a top 4 d-man. He represents an combination of skill and grit which the Sabres don't have in their d-prospects. As such he won't be traded, not coming off a fantastic season, playing 30 minutes a night against the opposition's top players while putting up insane numbers. A 2nd is not nearly enough. If he's traded it's for players (preferable not 4th liners), not picks

Every prospect who puts together a hot streak or scores a highlight reel goal automatically becomes "untouchable", and would take a "massive overpayment" to acquire fictionally on HFBoards.

I would rather the Oilers keep that 31st overall since we have Marincin, Blain, and Davidson who had great seasons in Jr., and are all of the same mold; just a year younger.

McNabb is neither untouchable nor does he require overpayment, if he's part of a package that brings in a scoring center or a shutdown d-man. Brule + the pick is neither one of those, so yeah in that case it does require overpayment.

And two full seasons + playoffs isn't just a hot streak. He's improved by leaps and bounds since he was drafted.

As an Oilers fan I would not do that trade. Gilbert Brule is useless though. Guy is a total bust. Not that we didn't know that 3 years ago. Hate him. Plus he averages 43 games per season. What a joke.
