Brassard to Buffalo

What would it take?

Boyes would most likely have to be included for salary reasons.

Boyes and 1st? Boyes and Sekera and Prospect? I'm willing to overpay for Brassard if necessary.

Keep in mind that Boyes can also play center, but is a better fit on the wing.

Let er rip

I'd do it for Sekera and Ennis. Nothing less than that.

Ennis is better than Brassard. He had more points, is younger and has a ton of potential.

Yeah. No.

This concludes trade talks.

We have no reason to trade Brass. If you want him, you'll have to overpay. Buf fans asked for the trade not me.

Ennis is 2 years younger and scored more points in his rookie season than Brassard did this past season, so no thanks

brassard, if ever healthy, is a better player than ennis.. and a better point producer too. i obviously don't love ennis though so considerable bias.

I'm wondering on what you base that. I don't get to watch many CBJ games, so I won't pretend I know who the better player is, but somehow I doubt Brassard is going to end up putting up more points than Ennis.

a poster above me said that ennis put up better points his rookie season than brassard did this season

brassard had 2 less points in 8 less games and played injured (again)
brassard put up 10-15 for 25 in 31 games his first year at the same age as ennis before dislocating his right shoulder and needing to have season ending surgery (where ennis had 20-29 for 49 in 82)


that is what i am basing it on, but as i said previously i also have a considerable bias.

I wish it could work but Columbus doesn't need or want Brad Boyes and it would take a different package for Brassard.

Either straight up for a first pairing shut down defenseman, or some sort of dramatic overpayment that makes it a no-brainer for Columbus.

Columbus really isn't in the market for picks or prospects.

There's really nothing on Columbus' roster that could get Myers. Maybe Carter ++. MAYBE.

I know this wasn't your intention, I just wish people would stop mentioning Myers in trade threads that don't include someone of Malkin-esque talent.

OT but my favorite thing to do in NHL11 is mow people down with Myer's, guy's a beast and will be great for a long time.

We only trade Brass (or vermette) for a top pairing defenseman.

I could live with Boyes + Sekera. It's good value, but it doesn't fill a gaping hole.

Likewise Buffalo only trades Ennis for #1 or #1b centre.

CBJ fans... Sekera is a top 4 d-man on his way to a top 2 (IMO)... Being completely objective, if I were Columbus I would be looking more towards moving Vermette & building my deal around Sekera coming back the other way.

Fellow Buffalo fans, I think you can forget the "Boyes + pick for #1 centre" idea... a 2nd/3rd line forward who makes $4M is just not that attractive... Best case, I think we might get a 2nd RND for Boyes on his own, or else include him in an attractive package.

PROPOSED COUNTER-OFFER

To CBJ:

D Andrej Sekera
C/RW Brad Boyes
2012 2nd RND pick

To BUF:

C Antoine Vermette
D Steven Delisle
2013 2nd RND pick

I don't see any need for moving Brassard unless it's to address our lack of proven top pairing defensemen.

Otherwise I'd just hang onto him. He's not the kind of guy you trade for a package return.
