Buffalo/Pittsburgh Proposal

Chris Thorburn, Nathan Paetsch and a 3rd for Recchi.

Sabres don't have a 3rd. It's Lydman now.
And it's an overpayment, considering Paetsch is doing really well in Rochester, and is Buffalo's closest defensive prospect to being NHL ready, and possibly the best outside of Sekera. Denisov, Ezhov, Fabry all have a long way to go yet (so does Sekera, but he's more promising).
Having seen Recchi all year, he's been VERY up and down. Some games he's been his old self, some games he's been godawful.

I love his game though, but he's also tied up for another year (think it's a player option though).
So, I'd take him, if we can't get someone a bit... well, cheaper or better... But that offer doesn't work for me.

Recchi also said he wants to play his final days as a Penguin, so if he does get traded he could pull a Barasso and sign with us just to retire.

I was thinking Recchi this morning, actually. I can't stand the guy, though he's not as bad as, say, Domi/Tucker/Avery. Anyway, the original proposal is a serious overpayment IMO. I think Recchi could be had for Thorburn alone, or Thorburn and a later pick [5thish].
