Myers to the oilers

The oilers have very good young forwards and picks and can really use help on d

Plus, the 1st round pick this year would be a good one.

Yak would be in this deal going to sabres

I think most, if not every Oil fan is on board with Ebs going the other way. Seems Sabres fans want more, which I'dd add a 2015 2nd to get it done. No more than that.

I don't think you'll find many Sabres fans that would do Eberle for Myers. It doesn't make us better.

Sabres would want Eberle or potentially Yakupov +.

I'm a big Myers fan, he does not deserve near the kind of flack he gets on this board, he's really rebounded this season in a big way, but he's not worth more than Eberle. Eberle straight up is a fair deal for both sides.

Yeah, but if all goes well, you can turn those into 10-15 1sts

It's a fair deal but I think Sabres fans would rather have Myers. Eberle is a great player but I don't think he's the answer to our scoring problems. We need a legit number one center then we can surround that center with some quality wingers.

In a vacuum, you are probably right. But in reality, it hurts the Sabres more than it helps. We can draft a player to fill Eberle's role. Replacing Myers would be extremely challenging.

In no world is Myers worth a recent first overall and a probable top two pick.

That would be absolutely insane for the Sabres to pull off. Their prospect pool, holy ****. Add Yakupov to their pool, and with 4 or so 1sts this year, 2 of which are top-5 picks

I don't think anyone has any qualms with keeping him.

The only way he leaves Buffalo is for a huge overpayment.

And I love how the overpayment keeps growing by the day. What was once Eberle or Yakupov alone is now Eberle plus or Yak and a first. Only a few months ago Eberle was considered to be worth way more than Myers, now it's adding on to Eberle. Myers very quickly went from one of theost underrated players in the NHL to one of the most overrated.

No sabres fans agreed to Eberle straight up. If so, they're in the extreme minority

Absolutely, but it depends on your perspective I guess. You add Eberle, lose Myers, but you have Zadorov and Ristolainen. You can also draft Reinhart first overall, or possibly take Ekblad first and still get Bennett with the Islanders pick. Of course you could just keep Myers, but Eberle is an extremely talented winger. He's made my Flames be on the wrong side of highlight reel clips far to often for my liking. Lots of options, but if Myers is dealt, Eberle is good value.

a pair of teenagers does not make Myers expendable. What if they both bust? Trading a youngster at this stage of the rebuild could be HUGELY costly.

I'd for take Eberle for Myers and run. Myers has a had a nice little rebound season but he's still not near what he can be and he could for sure step back to be absolute garbage he was the two previous season.

I think Eberle + good prospect/2nd (considering it'll be closer to a 1st round pick than an actual second) is pretty fair.

Don't blame Sabres fans who don't want to, though.
