To San Jose
2nd round pick
Conditional 3rd (if Clowe resigns)
San Jose needs some more speed in their lineup so they get Stafford and much needed draft picks as they have a horrible prospect pool.
Buffalo needs beef in their lineup and Clowe adds that. He won't put up with some player running over Miller. He'll bring a veteran presence/leadership role to the young Sabres. Can also take Foligno under his wing as a younger powerforward.
Buffalo passes on this deal. We just brought in Ott and Scott for that exact reason. Added to an already nasty Kaleta, McNabb, Regehr, McCormick and Foligno, I simply see no reason for buffalo to even consider this deal. Buffalo is looking much tougher this year.
