I dont think I would accept that package for Spezza by himself if I were Ottawa, although from a Buffalo perspective, Vanek with Spezza on his line could hit 60 goals easy. Spezza is definitely a career Senator.
Not to say that Buffalo would or should jump all over this, because they won't but...
Ottawa is hot, they have uber-chemistry. Buffalo, the opposite. Why would a team that is in a playoff position, not necessarily on pure talent, but more so because of intangibles/effort/desire/chemistry mess with all that by trading A) its key player B) deplacing its hot goalie and C) bringing in 3 players deplacing MM/Foligno/Greening, etc?
There is no way your getting all of that for the return offered.
I mean, Spezza is worth a whole lot, but not worth all of that, especially given the fact the Sabres most likely draft in the top 8 this year.
Regier hangs up the phone immediately and asks the NHL to drug test the entire Ottawa front office
boyes is not a 1st liner... 2nd liner at best.
miller is good but is getting old.
roy is small and 50-65 pt center... (on pace for 50 this year)
leopold older and not that fast (on pace for 16pts)
and gonchar has 24pts in 39 games...
value is fair.
I'm laughing at you, hard core.
Roy is a 70 point center, he's had an injury year and 1 off year and is 29 years old entering his prime production years.
Leopold we'll keep, thank you. Gonchar can sit in Ottawa.
And Miller getting old? he's 31, not 41. He's having a funk year, some of it to blame on the players in front of him, some of it on himself. He's worth alot more than you let on.
Cannot believe posters here, no GM in their right mind would agree with 90% that is posted in this thread. Even a former GM in McGuire noted that Miller would be worth a great deal to teams in the hunt for a solid netminder in need of a change of scenery and would pay handsomely to grab one, specifically Miller.
