Hmmmm. Pronger and Chara were two taller defensemen that had less than stellar starts to their careers. Just because Myers is playing like spare parts right now, which he is to a degree, doesn't mean he's worth it.

Buffalo should keep Myers based on the history of Chara and Pronger. Think Hartford wished they kept Pronger? Isles with Chara? Patience.....

Except for how Myers is 23 and loaded with potential.

Potential is solid yes, but 5.5 is a lot of cap to "wait" on a guy. Raycroft won a calder and had loads of potential too. Not trying to compare him to Raycroft but just saying his development since the calder isn't as disappointing as many think. He's came down to earth thats all. Takes a team with patiences. So a bottom feeder rebuilder would be perfect if Buffalo really wants him out. Although Buffalo has a potential "development" plan going themselves. So it's totally better off if Sabres just Wait him out.

This really couldn't be any further from the truth. Very different scenarios, both in actual situation and in value.
