buffalos 3 high profile wingers

Stafford, Vanek, Pominville

If they move one, who would be the first to go?

Stafford seems like the most logical choice.

Vanek cause of the contract and boom-bust tendencies. And because, for whatever reason, Ruff doesn't play him like literally every other first line offensive forward in the league. Thirteen minutes at ES for like three seasons running. Get ****ed, Lindy.

Stafford

Then Vanek

Pominville wouldn't be going anywhere

I can't see Buffalo letting go of Pominville. So it's either Stafford or Pominville.

I wouldn't call Stafford a high profile winger either.

Stafford's chemistry with Ennis is reason enough to keep him for now. Pominville has played well as a captain, and I can't see them moving him right now either. If any of the 3 got moved, it'd be Vanek. He'll never be as great as he could be in Buffalo the way Ruff uses him (which is, uh, not often enough), and moving his contract would free up the most space to use elsewhere.

Vanek goes first because of his contract. Stafford doesn't go anywhere because of chemistry with Ennis.

I can't see them moving Vanek, he is a goal scoring catalyst for them, I think they would be more eager to move Stafford. Pominville I don't think is going anywhere after how good he was last season.

What would Buffalo want for Stafford?

LOL.

Right now we'd like to see if Stafford's chemistry with Ennis is the real deal, but ideally a top 6 forward swap, preferably one with grit.

If vanej is their best player, why does Ruff only give him 14 mins? Vanek with top line mins could out up 40-40-80

What would Vanek or Stafford realistically cost?

I don't really think NJ and BUF are good trading partners; Im just curious.

Darn, no futures then. If you're in need of a veteran 3rd line centre, would Malhotra++ be of interest?

You want someone with grit. Bourque is a 30g,60pt man if playing well. Plus a very good PKer

Because he's the most overrated coach in NHL history.

Unless all 3 are only able to play 1 wing, I don't see the Sabres dealing them for ***** and giggles.

He has never hit 30 goals or 60 points.

I wouldn't call him good on the PK either.

All I could think of when I read the thread title was Buffalo Wings.

the big word here is IF playing well. I like bourque but I really doubt that will help the sabres.
