Myers for Simmonds/Schenn/1st?
Would be a nice package but we'd be weak on D

You'd be lucky to get Schenn for Myers, let alone in a package with all of that. Not a chance in hell Philly would even consider that package.

I agree, but you could easily get Schenn for Myers.

Wait, are we talking about Brayden or Luke?

Luke, yes.

Brayden, no.

I assumed that was for Brayden Schenn.

I am not sure what the cost would be but I would guess it would be fairly substantial.
It's not all that quiet.

The guys on NHL Home Ice this morning more or less said that Yandle is the hands-down most likely big name to get moved first.

oh, I havent heard anything on that since last summer.
I ultimately think he will be moved to COL for Stastny or O'Reilly

There's always packageable pieces like Simmonds, Voracek, Read, Laughton, Cousins, etc, but there's no doubt in Flyers fans' minds who the first two to always come up will be...

As for him changing his style of play, the style he's strayed from sounds exactly like what he'd be doing for Laviolette in Philly.
As much as I like some of those pieces and would love to have them on the sabres I wouldn't do it for Myers. I'd want a young forward with top line potential ie Schenn or Couturier, or a blue chip prospect ie Rielly, Granlund, Zibanejad, or someone of that ilk.

Watching the Leafs/Flyers game, even the Leafs are a much better team than the Sabres.

I'd like to see the Sabres move Leopold and Stafford. It doesn't exactly surprise me that Myers is bad considering he is 22, the season started at a random time, and he was coming off of an injury. Guys like Stafford and Leopold though should be leaders on this team. If you're going to make player changes it starts with them.

Who do you guys see us targeting in the off-season? I wouldn't be surprised if Pegula tried to land one of the Anaheim boys if one or both don't get re-signed, obviously though there will be a lot of competition for them and they will demand some big money.

I could see us trying to land Stephen Weiss , would give us the option of moving Ennis to the wing.

Nathan Horton - He just seems like a guy we'd try to land.

I know there are some older guys out there too, not really interested in the 35+ players. I'd have to take a look at the list for d-men but I remember it being a very thin year for ufa dmen.

To above poster, I would love to move Stafford this year and replace him with someone like Horton if Boston can't re-sign him.

Reimer just left the game. Looks pretty serious, he can't put any weight on his left knee.

Miller to Toronto?

Reimer leaves the game with an injury, could be bad for Toronto. Nonis was shown looking very frustrated and on his blackberry, probably texting Gillis about Luongo

Same Cap Hit. Sabres Need a Center. Sharks need a Winger. For 2 teams that are truly Struggling... Why Not?

I would carry Stafford on my back all the way to San Jose if this trade was happened.

Add a 1st and maybe someone on the Ennis level and they probably start talking.

Sharks fans wouldn't trade him straight up for Kessel in one of the other threads. (Neither would I)
