Drew Stafford is another floater like Johan Franzen, No Thanks.

"Floater" isn't how I'd describe Stafford personally. The one thing he's been giving on the ice is effort. Can't seem to score for his life though.

Stafford for Burmistrov is a done deal from my chair.

Seems like a fair trade. Winnipeg gets an immediate roster upgrade, Buffalo gets youth with tons of potential.

definitely not fair. I know many Jets' fans who would puke all over this. Burmistrov has way more upside than stafford ever had. At least from my opinion.

If Buffalo wants Burmistrov you need to add...

Oh Rly? That's why Cheveldayoff tried trading Burmistrov for Stafford and Regier refused unless Chevy threw in a 2nd round pick.

Stafford > Burmistrov

I'd love to see you explain how Burmi has "way more upside then Stafford ever had" when Stafford has a 31 goal in 62 game season under his belt.Burmistrov doesn't even have a 31 point season yet.

Both GM's are known to be a bit stubborn and to hold out for what they want.

Nobody is arguing that burmi is a better roster player. Jets fans know Stafford is the better roster player currently. But that's only part of the picture when it comes to trade value. Staffords contract is a bit pricey, and expires into ufa in two summers. Burmistrov can be locked up for cheap, and has 4 years of rfa status left.

Check the Sabres board there was an article posted after the deadline which actually included the part about the 2nd round pick.Regier turned down Burmistrov for Stafford straight up, it's fact.He wanted a 2nd round pick added, Chevy refused, Regier didn't budge.

I wouldn't mind Stafford, but am glad we hung on to Burmistrov. Adding a 2nd would have made that a horrible deal. Looks like Regier was trying to extract a trade deadline price hopeing that Chevy would overpay in an attempt to make the playoffs last year.
Stafford probably would have helped more than Burmistrov last year, but it's much too early for the Jets to give up on Burmi IMO.

I'm not sure where that opinion is coming from. Both were drafted around the same place, both were > PPG in the AHL (Stafford much more actually), both may have been rushed to the NHL.

They seem really similar to me.

Stafford obviously has had much better seasons in the NHL.

That's pretty much what a floater is there to take up space but cant seem to score fpr the life of them.

I still don't see any source pertaining to Burmi + a 2nd being turned down. All you gave is a link to a TSN article that states that Chevy talked to a lot of teams? I especially don't see any "facts".

My definition of a floater is someone who floats around the play, contributing nothing when they don't have the puck on their stick. I think that's the standard definition, if there is one.

That isn't Stafford.

There is a huge difference between someone in a slump, and someone who couldn't score throughout his whole career.

We discussed that on the board, doesn't make much sense for us other than improving our PP. Only makes sense to get younger really, so Hemsky's not a good fit. The guy who would make sense for Buffalo is Paajarvi. That'd be similar to a Burmistrov swap. In either a Paajarvi or a Burmistrov swap one side would likely have to add (apparently the deal for Burmi fell through at the deadline because Regier wanted a 2nd) but they're players with a similar situation up to this point. I understand if Oilers fans wouldn't like that swap as much as Winnipeg fans might because Stafford and Paajarvi are both wingers.

That'll never happen. It'd make more sense if it were Sekera + 2nd for 1st because it'd better fill a need and Sekera is a better player on a better contract.
