why would the Jets even consider a 1st + OK prospect for Buff?

They need to rebuild or just plain build. If they can get 2 1sts from someone else, they should take that deal. They aren't making the playoffs in the West anytime soon. Fans will pack the arena even if they had the worst record in the league.

It's interesting watching people read that he's only worth his money as a forward. One defenseman in the entire league scored more than he did. And guess who tied with him? Campbell. We shipped out 106 points from the blue line. Keith 40, Leddy 37, Seabrook 34. The three of 'em barely stood up to Byfuglien and Campbell. Byfuglien is worth his paycheck considering he can put up those numbers from the blueline, AND be a presence as a forward. How many players in the league can do that? Yeah. Worth every penny.

He is also probably one of the worst defensive players in the NHL. On pace to finish dead last(or 1st) in even strength goals allowed while on the ice. On pace for 96 even strength goals allowed while he was on the ice. It wouldn't have even been that close. 2nd worst was Cam Fowler with 83.

If he won't play forward then I see know point in acquiring his big contract. He'd have to be committed to playing forward and actually working hard in the regular season to warrant that money. And Buff was my favorite player and would be again as soon as we would acquire him. But no thanks to him as defenseman. We have enough guys who pinch at terrible times and play flat footed and get beat all the time for breakaways.

We could play Kane as a defenseman, he'd hit his fifty points and be a total trainwreck of a defenseman.

I rather see Andrew Ladd return, but it will not happen. Nor will we see Byfuglien in a Hawks jersey again.

let's hope Beach or Morin will step up and can take a role like this. Not that Morin has the same size, but he could be a player in the mold of Buff
