Big Buff is pretty underrated. Unlike other great offensive defenceman, he is heavily used in tough defensive assignments. He seems more time on the PK unit than Bogosian, and sees more tougher competition. I think his defensive game is very underrated, and if traded, he'll be used in that manner.

Give him a stronger partner, and I could see it working. Personally, I'd like to acquire him and put him on our top pairing.

He has a strong partner and he's last on the team in +/-. Winnipeg is moving him to forward the next game to "shake things up".

Do not want...

He's the best amongst defenceman in terms of CORSI Rel QoC. In other words, he's facing the top possession drivers and that really explains his +/- numbers. Since Enstrom is playing weaker minutes, it's pretty obvious that his move up front has a lot to do with Winnipeg's forward core being a mess. In fact, he's the top scorer on a team that isn't quite strong in terms of GF.

I think majority of Jets fans would say absolutey no to this.


And i cant think of any Flyers fan that would say yes to it.

I don't hate Buff and wouldn't mind the Flyers getting him, but they really can't afford to move Voracek.

Clitsome/Ellerby/Pardy are considered strong partners nowadays?

Unfortunately I think it's true. Buff has his one main wart and it's that he just doesn't think the game fast enough in the defensive zone. He sometimes can forget to tie up a guy's stick in front. In a sheltered role on a competitive team, he would be a star because he is a net positive playing top competition and a big point producer. A very versatile guy that has played forward too.

The only way I can see a team trading for him is as a piece to help put them over the top. One that is strong enough to play him 2nd pair, with a reliable partner, and on the PP.

He is so good at defense, they are trying him at forward next game! Lol

Looks like Winnipeg can't get what they want in a trade for him so are trying to see if they can get a 1st line winger anyways by converting him back to forward.

Trying him at forward because Kane is injured and he's talented enough offensively to fill a top 6 role while we have an abundance of defenseman who can slot wherever to make it work.

Good HFLogic though.
