Need the elite players if you want to win boys.

And if you want the 2nd Overall, you GOT to overpay.

Stafford and a 1st isnt is gonna get it done. It's called a gamble.

No way. Not sure the career potential of grigoorenko vs mack is the differential of 2 firsts and 2 2nds

Florida wouldn't make the trade anyway. We need a #1 center and don't need more prospects. And Buffalo is better off with the quantity of picks which are still quality despite not being the #2.

if you stopped at "8th overall and Grigorenko", it may have sparked an interesting discussion... but you went overboard...

Shocking suggestion for a massive overpayment by the Sabres.

Grigorenko can be elite and we can select from talent D (Nurse, Ristolainen) and LW (Rychel, Mantha) at No8 or No16-No20

An 8th with Grigs for the #2 pick would be interesting

I almost proposed a trade like this last night. Mine would have been:


Tyler Ennis
Brayden McNabb
Buffalo's two firsts this year
2nd round pick

Another ridiculous trade......

How much difference is there between Grigorenko and MacKinnon? I don't think 2 1st + 2 2nds.

A fair value for FLA pick would be grigorenko + something smaller like a 2nd.

Anything more than that is a serious overpay.

Yea one player who could be a top ten player in a few years. For 3 picks that may never make it in the league a prospect and a player. You calling the picks players is hilarious though. By the way what did Pominville just get traded for?

Wait a minute....

Girgorenko + 2nd for Mackinnon.

This is your opinion of fair value?

Personally I dont do this trade.....but dealing in the hypothetical....

Mackinnon and Grigorenko arent that much apart in terms of value and skill. Alot of success has to do with the people you play with and the teams system.

The players I would go after would be Drouin or Barkov over MacKinnon.
