Cross-Border Trade Deadline Shopping: Sales in Buffalo?

Right now the Sabres are just 4 points out of a playoff spot, but have also played the most games in the NHL and sit in 13th in the Eastern Conference. They play in the very tough, and very tight Northeast Division where they are bringing up the rear. Sure their playoff hopes aren’t dashed yet, and they might keep these guys and make a run, but they’ll have to start that run in the next three weeks or so. If things continue down the current path, there will be plenty of soon to be UFAs available for trade in Buffalo in early April.

If Ott was made available what would he cost?

Calgary's far too weak at the faceoffs, not a single one of their NHL regulars have over a 50% win-rate. They should either target a bonafide top line center (which is easier said than done) or a defensive aware faceoff specialist that would come cheap. Ott doesn't really fit the mold as he's no where near good enough to be a top liner, yet too good to come cheaply. But he's good at faceoffs and would add some needed sandpaper so I could see Calgary at least inquiring about him.

Also, just knowing how the Flames operate they'll probably grab Regehr, Leopold and Pardy from you.

1st + good young 4th liner. Maybe more. Buffalo really has no incentive to trade him given their organizational dearths of physical players, defensive forwards, natural leaders and faceoff specialists and the extra year on his deal.

Stafford and pretty much the entire blueline are the most obvious guys on the block. Maybe they get crazy and move Vanek/Poms/Miller, but that's something that'll go down on deadline day with absolutely no warning.

Ott's not available so keep him out. Other obvious ones include Hodgson, Grigorenko, Myers, and Ehrhoff.

Guys who will be available I think are Leopold, Stafford, Gerbe, Weber, Brennan, Enroth, and Hecht. Guys like Ennis and Sekera won't be shopped but I think we'd move them for the right return.

I won't rule out us moving someone big like Vanek, Pominville, or Miller, but I highly doubt that happens. All three of those players haven't been the problem and have been a big reason why we've won the games we have.

The sabres will not trade a player within its own division or future division teams.

Ott is availabel but it would be for a bigtime offer.

Ott alone likely wont get moved since he is under contract next year.

Of those on the list...Leopold is the one who would get traded being a UFA after this season and Buffalo has young Dmen in their system who are NHL ready now.

Regehr has a no movement clause in his contract. He would have to request a trade to a cup contended. He may do this if he felt this was his final season. As a courtesy Buffalo will give him away for a 4th or lower to a team like Pittsburgh, Boston, Vancouver, Chicago, Anaheim, and other cup contenting teams.

Scott and Hecht---nobody would touch them.

What would it take to get Regehr to TOR. I understand that there was some so called "bad blood" between Phaneuf and Regehr but they are professionals one would think they could put it behind them. Be better than Holzer on our first pairing (Assuming Regehr can play the right side.)

Scott was traded for just last year (or maybe the year before that). Still, I doubt he moves, or the Sabres try to move him.

I just highly doubt Regehr is moved period, let alone to a division rival. We'd like to re-sign him. He has a NMC and most likely won't waive it and wants to stay in Buffalo. Might take a hometown discount to re-sign I imagine. He doesn't want to move his family and they like living here.

As for Phaneuf and Regehr, they were teammates and partners for that matter for quite a while. Regehr has always played the left side. Phaneuf played the right with him and can play both. Apparently things went very sour in the locker room in Calgary and the two don't like each other anymore.

That said, I still doubt Regehr waives his NMC. The only team I see him playing for next year is the Sabres unless he's offered to be traded to a contender and wants that chance, although he seems like a "go down with my ship" kind of guy. He didn't want to leave a struggling Flames team and it took a lot to pry him out of there. Doubt he'd do that again. It's all up to Reggie. He has total control. Regier won't ask him to waive it. He'll only go if he wants to.

Ya I highly doubt anybody would pay what we would want for OTT right now he is what this team has lacked for years. Better than I thought he was.

I see Calgary as the team that is probably far too desperate and crazy to way overpay Bozak this year as a UFA.
