What about Tallinder when he gets back for Leopold? Devils have enough shut-down guys, and Tallinder could help out Myers again.
Not a chance. Hank's been a wreck, health-wise, and has lost at least a step since leaving Buffalo. Leopold is one of the few guys on the roster that the majority of Sabres fans here wouldn't hate to see back next season.
I doubt Buffalo is ready to simply trade off their assets for a return like this. Leopold is not a UFA, so why deal him for an underwhelming offer like this? IMO they should look at dealing some other pieces before they deal a player like Leopold
Seems to be market value. Would the Devils consider Reid Boucher instead of the picks?
They might. He's a project pick, but now with Tedenby and Palmieri close to making the NHL full time, he's one of the few winger prospects in the system who have top 6 potential. So they might want to hang onto him and see what he becomes, especially with a shot like he has.
