Buff - Tor

okay, lets go semi-blockbuster style...

to Buffalo:

Phil Kessel

to Toronto:

Tyler Myers
Grigorenko


...wondering how many people will say no because of Grigorenko vs any other aspect of the deal.

He isn't worth that much. If it was us, we'd laugh at this trade, so why post it?

myers is already equal to kessel in value, considering his contract situation. and intra-division trading of a elite forward? terrible trade proposal.

Kessel, if he isn't scoring, is basically useless to us now. He rarely backchecks, looks disinterested without the puck on his stick, won't take a hit to make a play, no heart, on and on and on. He is at best a complimentary piece to a good center and tough winger. Myers, while having a bad season is still one of the better dmen in the league, and young enough to still have lots of growing as a player. Grigs I was never really fond of anyway, but still has value. I'd think to be int he conversation with Myers, forget Kessel and start with Rielly or Gardiner and add a winger they can use like Kulemin/Frattin

i can see why buffalo would not be interested but im not sure i agree that myers = kessel in value. kessel is a legit top line winger on every team in the nhl. we can debate that there are other wingers someone might prefer but his numbers suggest kessel is a top line winger.

myers had a brilliant rookie season but hasnt really done anything since to demonstrate why he is worth kessel. his value is obviously high and he has a ton of potential but the guy is making $5.5 million x 7 years. he is hardly a bargin for what he is bringing to the table. at the moment kessel makes around the same but when he gets his new contract he will make more then myers but i would rather pay kessel $6.5 x 7 then myers $5.5 x 7. i dont believe myers will be the top pairing defenseman that people in buffalo hope he will be.

grigs is an exciting prospect as well but realistically i dont see him being a true number 1 center and we have enough number 2s so id rather just keep kessel.

i totally understand why buffalo would want to keep myers/ grigs as well. with vanek they dont necessarily need to bring in another scorer, i think they could use an upgrade at center as well as opposed to moving depth for another scoring winger

Not surprised you guys seem to be lacking that #1C and outside Hodgson Grigs is the second best option for the future. On top of that Myers value is pretty low right now.

Toronto would have to say 'done' . I dont think the Sabres will.

same conference and division, so a deal like this would never happen.

Also - sabres have Vanek, no need for Kessel.

If Kessel is actually traded i'd think it's for top quality futures or to the ducks for a signed Perry.

Just my 2 cents, i'm probably wrong tho.

The proposal is beyond awful, but I'd just rather not invest anything in a one-way streaky scorer with a large cap hit. He's not the type of player Buffalo should be looking for.
