Tyler Myers

There's an interesting debate taking place on the main board, about 23 yr old Tyler Myers. He had a great rookie season in 2009-2010: 11g, 37 a.
He's regressed badly since then according to Sabre fans.

They said he'd been paired up with Tallinder in 2009-2010. The team has tried a bunch of different defensive partners since Tallinder left, but Myers play has declined.

The Sabres gave him a $10m signing bonus and he has a multi yr deal, that averages $5m per. At 6'8 he is a very good skater. Someone negatively compared his lack of physical play, skating ability and size to Boumeester.

If this kid can get his level of play back to what it was in 2009-2010, he'll be worth that $5m per. If he doesn't, the Sabres will have gambled on potential with that contract and lost.

Isles have Streit becoming a ufa this summer and his $4.1m salary will be freed up.
I'm not sure Myers is available, just wondering if Snow should at least be kicking the tires on Myers, seeing if he's available?


Or is that contract too big a risk, for a team that's gotta spend wisely?

Yup, unless of course it's incentive laden, those are the types of contracts Wang loves.

I don't know about the contract, might be doable if Streit doesn't stay....BUT I can guarantee that Garth will look at it as he is taking a monstrous salary off the Sabres hands and helping them out so what they get in return will equate to a bag of used practice pucks and DPs locks when he looks in the mirror and realizes how bad they look.

If the Isles have to return anything of value Snow will not do it...

There are a bunch of players off to 2-4 pt starts in the first 7/8 games:B. Shenn, Kessel, Clowe, Stastny, J. Carter, Briere, Giriox(sp), Voracek, Couturier, Seguin, Ovie among them.

Just imagine if KO were making the $6.6m Stastny makes or the $9m+ that Ovie makes. Isle fan would really have some reason to whine

I could be wrong, but I think that $10m bonus covered the bonuses in his deal and that was paid before the lockout started. I guess Myers and his rep, didn't want to risk the new cba rolling back salaries or limiting bonuses.

He's worth taking a look at as their whole D unit is struggling. Jordan Leopold is playing at a Mike Mottau level. They actually need a new coach because it looks like they're tuning Ruff out, so it may be system related and not all Myers fault.

I would not include a 1st this year in any trades however since any team out of the playoffs can move into the number one spot if they lose the lottery. Seth Jones for Myers would come back and haunt us.

There is no way the Sabres will move him unless the Penguins come knocking offering Malkin in return...

That's a tough pill for Buffalo financially. They'd eat Myers front loaded contract, then flip it for Okposo's backloaded one. Isles would have to sweeten it considerably, IMO.

Not even a drunk and high Buffalo GM would do that. Isles would have to give more than Okposo.

You guys are overrating Myers. He's a one hit wonder.

To put it in perspective, Myers is making almost $ 4M more than Crosby and Malkin this year!
