Pominville is a 1point per game guy, it takes a lot to acquire that kind of player, plus I don't think he's part of the problem in buffalo.

i agree 100%. he is really good all around, but this team needs to "turn the page". and 2 picks in the top 10 (or even lower, with possible other trades) would do wonders for this team.

He plays for team USA cuz it's easier to make that team than Team Canada . Off topic, I had seen him at the Montreal airport two summers ago. Exchanged a couple words, really nice guy, but didnt ask where he lived lol.

so we're trading the guy who stepped up as captain for a 1st and a guy who may only pan out to be a 2/3 center?
while we're at it, why don't we make another awful trade within the division and trade vanek for bozak and a 1st?

if it, along with a second (what we have now or boyes, hecht, leopold, or goose, at the deadline) will get us galchenyuk,(the #1 centre) and we still have our own #1 then hell yeah!

You don't trade your 2nd best player, and captain.

Actually, most of the Sabres captains throughout team history have been traded. Ruff, Foligno, Ramsey, Lafontaine, Mogilny, Peca, Barnes were all traded. Following them you have Drury and Briere who left as UFA's and Rivet who was waived. As you can see, being captain is hardly sacred in Buffalo.

You don't trade your captain when he's in his prime, having a career year even though everyone other than vanek (who has actually cooled off a lot recently) has sucked, for a guy who's projected to be a 2nd liner and a high prospect. If I'm dealing pominville to a division rival, absurd overpayment needs to be coming back to compensate. this isn't directed just at you, but why do so many people on HF seem to think that high end prospect potential>>>>a lot of good/very good nhl players who aren't over the hill or have any major problems?

Max Pac and a 1st would get me into this conversation otherwise his value though bloated to every other team's eyes is what it is....he,vanek and unfortunately miller likely wont leave anytime soon and if they do itd be for massive overpayment especially considering its to Montreal

Montreal doesn't appear to have the trade assets that it would take to get Pominville out of Buffalo.

The only way I see Buffalo dealing off Pominville right now is if they are getting a franchise #1 center in the deal.

If you get a first from MTL, it is likely to be a top 10 pick. So now we have two top 10 picks. You get your franchise #1 center in the draft, and this would set us up nicely to be able to do that.

Would've been much better to start off this thread about a year ago when Buffalo fans were proposing him in basically every single proposal involving their team on the main board.

It doesn't appear that Sabres management is interested in selling off core guys like Pominville for futures.

Yet.

And if they do move Pominville, my guess is that they would want a package akin to what Philly got from C'Bus.

His mom is from Wisconsin and he has dual citizenship. You'll still find a vocal minority of fans who want him gone, they're just in hiding at the moment since his play has been one of the few good things overall for the season. He's still the same guy -- dependable, useful, doesn't dodge the press ever, usually a pretty responsible defensive player/PKer -- he was last year, just things are going a bit better for him offensively.
