Buffalo isn't moving Myers.

But the discussion is fun

I really cant see Buffalo trading Myers in the next 5 years. Young players go through slumps all the time. He will mature into one of the games best.
I wouldnt even make a proposal because the response will be Hall or RNH or Eberle and keep adding

We trade a center prospect who has a lot of potential, just as Myers has tons of potential, a soon to be UFA defenseman who we'd have no use for if we acquire Myers, and a 2nd round pick (which we're notorious for giving up).

I'd have no problem making that move as a Flyers fan...

Myers is a 6'7 DMan who won the Calder when he was 20. Do you realize how insanely ridiculous that is? There are very few players who have the potential that Myers has, and Kessel does not touch it. Kessel imo will be a 70-90 at the absolute most pt guy. Myers has the potential to score 50-65 pts, and he's HALF A FOOT taller than the average DMan. I know there's not a Sens player I think is worth Myers, and thats not a slight against Ottawa at all.

Since he's done well as a rookie and has been forgettable since, the Blue Jackets offer Steve Mason straight up.

Maybe to the outsiders, but down the stretch last season he was one of the best in the league and I have no qualms saying that. He is young and still needs to grow into his role, but no one should be really worried about him. He started slow last season and turned it around just fine.

Considering Buffalo is 2nd in the East, they have no need to even make a shakeup trade. If they are performing like this when Myers is in a slump, imagine how they will be when he gets out of this funk.

I think you went over the top with this. Spezza is more certainly worth Myers and in my opinion (though I can't state it as a fact) Karlsson is worth more than Myers.

Interestingly enough, seeing as how we are both fans of a the same team in their division, I personally find Myers to be overrated.

To each his own I guess.

Flyers offer:

Brayden Schenn + Matt Carle + 2012 2nd

for

Tyler Myers + Paul Gaustad

I think Buffalo would need to add a cap dump to make it work w/ the cap... but thoughts?

MAYBE they would trade Myers for Spezza just because it addresses a more glaring need, but I doubt it.

Eberle + Gagner + Omark + Gilbert + Peckham for Myers is what I would offer. Adding these guys to their lineup would make BUF a better overall team than with Myers.

Gilbert is playing very well and could soften the loss of Myers on D minute wise, and all these players are young enough to be a part of the team long term.

EDM does this because they have depth.

Gagner and Eberle are guaranteed to be solid players for years. Gilbert is still young and Omark and Peckham are the wild cards of just how much they might bring.

Omark and Lieno would be dynamite together IMO. Which would make the Omark inclusion in this trade very valuable. (maybe this is a smaller trade that BUF should make)

Peckham is included because he brings some toughness that BUF needs.

I value Gilbert in a similar class to Leopold based on his progress and play this season.

Myers is not going anywhere, but this is my offer I would make that would be better than what anyone else offers and would make BUF a stronger/deeper team and fill some weak spots, compliment existing players.

That is why i choose the players I offered.

So in summary, Eberle, Gilbert and pretty much 3 contracts on the Buffalo roster for Myers.

Sabres would never do this and neither would Oilers. Not that the Oilers are getting hosed or anything, but Eberle is our one RW that looks to be a staple in the lineup and Gilbert has been sensationaly with Smid as a shutdown pair. Gagner maybe could use a change of scenery but the other two are just being thrown in to be taken out of Edmontons hair by the looks of things.

Buffalo is not trading Tyler Myers for anything that would ever realistically be offered.

But maybe I'm off my rocker.
Then why aren't the first three guys near Lucic out of the lineup (Vanek, Sekera, Gaustad)? I don't see it. He handed the game over to the Bruins with the Marchand flub at the blueline and the pass that resulted in the 2-on-1 Sekera screwed up on. He gave away the puck like stale Halloween candy on a breakroom table -- to everyone, free, and without thought.

What is so "insanely ridiculous" about winning a Calder trophy when you're 20?

a 6'7" player who should be extremly clumbsy, was considered to be a 5 year project and is way ahead of that, you guys will be back on the myers bandwagon fairly soon.

Myers has the makings of the next Chara. I don't see Buffalo moving him for any reason.

This statement is beyond idiotic. So every 6'7 player to ever play hockey should be extremely clumsy (spelled correctly by the way)? Apparently all you need to be is 6'7 to get drafted in the NHL? Skating ability doesn't matter at all since he should be extremely clumsy and tripping over his own feet?
