Big Buff in the summer for your RW+ to play with Kane

Jets have 5 RHD now that Redmond will return by the fall at latest. What is Big Buff worth to you? He does *NOT* want to play forward. So don't expect him to after you trade for him.

Cap hit is 5.2M through 15/16 and he's good for 50+ points/year.

Our needs:

Top 6 RW scorer to play with Kane
draft picks are always nice
1st/2nd line C

update:

We'd prefer a roster player being the majority of what comes back, but prospects are always nice. For roster players we don't need RHD, mediocre centers, scoring LW, or 4th line scrubs.

Buffalo would be interested

I could see something like

TO BUF: Byf +Burmistrov
TO WPG: Stafford+McNabb/Pysyk+ something else

something else greatly depends on what is done with Miller and vanek and their trade haul.

With Kadri breaking out this year, I wonder if Kessel may become available. Really depends on how much Nonis wants to make the Leafs his team I would assume. Love Kessel and all, but offense isn't our need right now, defense is. We have a bunch of good defense prospects, but pretty much every single prospect, along with most of our current defensemen, shoots left. A trade around Kessel + Big Buff may be possible.

That package doesn't get you Buff alone. It's not even close. Stafford is worth very little right now.

No. You dont trade Phil Kessel for Buff. I like Big Buff but there would need to be a sizeable + coming back with him, nevermind that he'd get shredded in this crazy, defenseman-eating market.

In the Miller and Vanek deals they will get at least 2 1st round picks + 4 quality young players. It greatly depends on who those player are and where surplus players are.

hypothetically if Buffalo was to trade Miller to PHX for one of their young Defense prospects then they may not be interested in Byf.

You could always start the Vanek to WPG rumors---its close enough to MN

The first thing I thought when I read this title was "Buf doesn't play for Chicago anymore so why did someone bump this?" Damn Kanes.

If the Rangers still had Gaborik I feel like there would be a deal to be made here, we are very short on RHD

From NYI: Kyle Okposo, Nino Neiderreiter, and a 1st round pick in 2013 for Byfuglin

Thoughts?

I know Philly was interested in Buff. What about Simmonds + Mezaros + ????. Not sure what else would need to be added.

Done (need to substitute Mezaros though he's not healthy and his contract is terrible)

I don't know if I'm in the minority and also don't know how the NYR fanbase rates it's players, what is the consensus on the following?(as key pieces, not necessarily combined)

Kreider
Hagelin
Miller
Brassard(yes I know he was just acquired)

A Philly fan came to our board and offered Read + Coburn. Definitely interested in Read.

The reason I proposed the NYI trade is because:

1) I think Ryan Strome and Brock Nelson will make the jump to the NHL next year. Their needs to be roster spots for them

2) Okposo, while only having a $2.8 million cap hit, sees his salary go up because it was backloaded. NYI prefer high cap hits, less actual salary paid out because of our cheap owner. That's why I think KO is prime talent to be moved.

NYI need a top-4 defensman. Who knows if Streit will be back. Buff is signed long-term.

Moulson-Tavares-Strome
Bailey-Nielsen-Grabner
Ullstrom-Nelson-McDonald
Martin-Cizikas-Lee

Hamonic-Byfuglin
Visnovsky-Hickey
Streit-Strait
Reinhardt/Carkner in the mix here as well.

you'd get more for Bogo to be perfectly honest. Buff will only get you B- rw's

Well we don't all agree. This Flyer fan would trade Simmonds for Buff. Yes it would hurt to do, but I would do it.

A 50 point top paring dman that's plays 24 minutes a night against top competition. His return is not going to be a b- RW.
