Watching his game, he's a shadow of his former self. BUT young enough to turn it back around

From a Jets perspective:
Burmistrov and a 3rd for Myers. Then move Postma and a 2nd at deadline for a 2nd line scorer...stranger things have happened.

Since the Sabres paid him a 12M signing bonus last summer during the lockout, if your a team that only cares about actually dollars instead of cap hits, his contract isn't that bad.

Don't watch the Sabres enough to talk about him in detail, but he hasn't been the great in his own end, but I guess that normal for a young d-men, so it could improve.

One major issue I see, specially when he plays the Habs, is that he seems very soft, 5'7 Desharnais, and 5'9 Gallagher keep betting him in puck battles along the boards. I know it sometimes tough to handle those little guys, but still.

Phaneuf 2.0

Trading him would be a mistake.

Would love him in Toronto, paired with Phaneuf he wouldn't have to be tough, just good positionally, but I do not see Buffalo trading him in the division, let alone the conference unless it is a huge overpayment.

Classic "change of scenery" trade needed for the youngster.

I'd love to have him on Toronto playing beside Dion.

Considering how bad he's been playing, I think the opposite would be true.

Avs should really take a very close look at this, IF true.

Well he has actually played quite well the last month+

He has about 15 brutal games to start.

*No idea. Not a Sabres fan, so I'm not sure what the lines would actually look like, nor do I know where someone like Grigorenko would fit in if he made the team.

Toronto fans wont like it but I'll offer a 1st for him.

He's that big RH shot D-man we need. At 23 he can still pick his game up.

Everyone wants Myers because they know what he can/will become, but everyone on here just lowballs.

But okay, I'll be serious. I don't watch Myers much (or at all really) but all I hear about is how bad he's been. That said, he's still young so there's plenty of time to turn it around. If the Sabres believe that, they'll a) expect a lot in exchange for him, and b) send him to another division (regarding next year's realignment).

I don't know what his price would be though.

The Sabres will probably only trade him for another struggling young player with high potential. They won't get full value based upon Myers's potential because he has struggled so badly the last couple of years. But they would be dumb to trade him when his value is at its lowest.

Can anybody think of any candidates (struggling young players with big upside)?

I think Buffalo has a greater need for defensemen than young centres.

The issue with Myers is the same issue Phaneuf had - he has a big long-term contract and isn't playing up to it.

His cap hit is 5.5 per year until 2018-19.

I can't really see too many takers.
