No thanks. I am not passing up the opportunity to finally add a center to build this team around on the hope that Myer's bounces back to previous form.
Completely agree.


Not a fan of either team here, but I though that would be fair value even though it makes no sense to the Flames.


Flames don't need Defense.

They deal him to get a top 3 pick or for a front line player. Any offer for him will have to be based on full potential.

Get a grip, buddy. We're not going to trade one of our most prized assets for a bunch of crap that doesn't help us.

75% of posters on here have probably watched Myers five times in his career and base his play off of that or listen to other posters when they say he sucks and they go "Oh, he's right, Myers does suck!"

We're not going to trade him unless we get something equal in value in return. We literally have nothing to lose by keeping him, but posters keep lowballing us with trade proposals.

It's going to be Bartschi ++.

Considering the Sabres just paid Myers ~11M last season to play 48 games, I would be shocked if they trade him so soon. That would be a massive financial mistake if they move him now. They need him to bounce back and have a great season to justify spending so much money on him.

Buffalo put a lot of faith in Myers with that massive contract they signed him to. That's going to be hard to live up to for a young guy on D.

Carp? Maybe some really awesome bluefin but no carp.


These teams make poor trading partners. Calgary needs help at #1 center and moving their pick at #6 denies them a chance to land a potential one. Buffalo has thinned their defense to the point they need Myers to bounce back AND also needs help at center. Both teams are ultimately looking for the same thing.

not completely true. Both years he has had terrible starts to the season and finished them strong. Once you start the year bad, that's the press you get for the rest of the year. Whether it's offseason conditioning or just the terrible coaching of Lindy Ruff, it hasn't been a steady decline. It's been up and down. He needs a coach who lets him take risks when he's got the puck and a responsible D partner to cover for his giveaways and he'll be good.

Shocking to think someone might let him play to his strengths (turning things in transition, rushing the puck, joining the rush, using an active stick in defense) rather than trying to turn him into a player he is not (heavy d-start, physical masher type). Getting his fitness in order, which is both an issue for the off-season and an off-shoot of his high-ankle sprain in Austria, and letting him play to his strengths should see him right the ship. I'm keen to see what Rolston can do with him, personally. He's got some habits to work on, sure, like his off-season conditioning, that should help with his confidence levels. When he's playing confidently, the tentative puck decisions and positioning errors disappear.

I'm not sure Myers is the right guy for us. I'd like to see Sven, Brodie, and our 1st stay. For those reasons, obviously Myers wouldn't be coming to Calgary.

Am I crazy or should threads like this only be started by fans of the fan base involving the player in question?

If say an oil fan like me is starting such a thread I think I should be starting it as a proposal... But since its involving the flames I'll give it a try.

Gordoano and 6th overall for Myers's and 16th overall.

Say what you want a about the value to the flames, buffalo can't possibly be insane enough to trade Myers's at a discount price.
