I'm going to assume that Edmonton fans will want that 1st removed/changed to something else, at the very least (more of them will be pissed that you included Eberle in a deal, because they love Eberle).

Not sure if Buffalo really wants to do that, considering Eberle isn't the C they're looking for (he's been moved to RW), and they'll be seen as selling low on Miller.

I'd want Eberle removed before the 1st. He's as untouchable of a player as we have. Even for Myers.

Drop Eberle and Miller. Ebs/Hall/RNH are all untouchable. I understand Sabres fans likely feel the same about Myers, but it would depend entirely on the pick.

If its 1st overall, I'd be dropping Paajarvi from the deal too. Yakupov will be a Pat Kane type with a physical edge. That's a pretty intriguing player.

Assuming this happens in the summer, I think the Oil's draft position would be critical here.

Still... If Eberle is untouchable (like he should be for the Oil) and the real target is Myers (a player Buffalo fans rightly think of as untouchable), then I think the only way they'd get it done is with Edmonton picking #2 or better (which, if I was the oilers, I wouldn't do).

I see this proposal as a non-starter.

I'd take it from the Sabres POV.

Why do people keep offering the Sabres top six wingers? Vanek is good, as is Pominville, Leino has zero trade value right now he's stuck here. Stafford is trade able, but we have Kassian and Armia who will be here in the very near future, who can take his spot. We don't have any "franchise dmen" to replace Myers.

Why does this trade make sense? Why does Buffalo trade to get younger, and yet gives up their best young asset in the process?

In two years our right wingers would be Eberle, Pominville, Stafford, Kassian, and Armia. How does that make sense? Sure we could trade one the five, but it would put us at a point of weakness, because we basically half to trade someone. Why are we trading Myers so we can put ourselves in that situation?



sorry, I guess I just get annoyed when I see Myers AND Miller going out and no franchise center coming back in.

Myers is not going to Edmonton, same as Eberle is not going to Buffalo.... EVER!!!

Although i would Love Eberle, Buffalo does not need wingers... especially not at the cost of Myers - OP, please do a bit of homework prior to posting this asinine crap... this deal is a non-starter from both sides.

EDM hangs up IMO, BUT NOT BECAUSE OF VALUE. HALL/EBERLE/RNH are all untouchable. It would be a spot firing for whoever was for this deal in management.

Dependent on draft position the first for Myers. If Buffalo can get Yakupov/Grigorenko for Myers I think they would do it. And Although Buffalo probably ends up with the better player in the long run in Yakupov or Grigorenko I think EDM would like this deal too. We crave defencemen like Myers in EDM.

As an Oiler fan I'd be really sad to see Eberle leave. Not to mention a lottery pick as well.

Myers would have to win a couple Norris trophies before I'd forgive management for doing this trade.

Going to go ahead and lock this one down as "over the top". As well as it's heading in a negative direction.
