Adam Erne to Buffalo

Erne and Grigorenko were line mates and best friends in juniors so I think it will help Grigorenko. Plus Erne is the type of forward the Sabres need, Power Forward that can score.

What would it take to get this guy to Buffalo?

He's also the type of forward we need so makes no sense for us to move him. I'd ask for Pysyk and then see what we'd need to add.

A defense-man.

Could something be added to get Rastolainen or Zadorov? Or they are untouchable?

You'll get some fans that say they are untouchable but for me it depends on what we get back.

Nope. Personally, I'm not interested in moving any of our blue chip D guys yet. Need to see what we have in them at the NHL level before deeming anyone expendable. If someone did get moved, I'd want a 1-for-1 that nets us a top young forward, not a handful of guys who might become 2nd or 3rd liners.

Outsider thinking this is a trade fit made in heaven. Adam Erne as the main piece from TB and one of Buffalo's almost ready D as the main piece from Buffalo. TB has an insane forward prospect depth and they address a weakness with dealing a guy who isn't Kucherov/Drouin/Namestnikov. Buffalo can deal one of Pysyk/McNabb/McCabe and still have Myers and Zadorov/Rasse coming up soon.

To get Risto or Zads you will have to give up a player you dont want to give up.

this isnt NHL 14 where you can add a bunch of small pieces to eventually get the player you want.

I would do Erne for McNabb or BUF 2nd 2014 or a mid 20s 2014 1st they get in a trade at the deadline.

Typical Sabres response saying we're not willing to give up Risto or Zads, just too much potential. I'd be willing to talk trades including Pysyk and McNabb if TB is interested. I think the Sabres are becoming a more hard nosed team with these big shutdown defenders and a guy like Erne really adds to that sense of team personality. Obviously the connection between him and Grigs could only help.

If I were TB, I would ask for someone like Mark Pysyk in return or stand pat. Erne should have been a sure fire 1st rounder as high as top 20 in last year's draft and he has done nothing but show great things since being drafted in the 2nd round.

He should be worth a lot and a guy like Pysyk or McCabe who I would at least expect in return from Buffalo.

I would easily trade our 2014 1st rounder + something more for him without a hesitation

Hey Buffalo, we do not want McNabb, spot trying to offer him to us in every trade proposal involving the two teams.

We'd want Myers, Risto, Pysyk, Zadarov, McCabe then McNabb in that order. Obviously trying to get Myers, Risto or Zadarov will take a lot more but think a deal involving Erne and Pysyk is a good base.

I don't see a point in trading Erne. He's got a unique skillset in our system.

I wouldn't deal him. Power forward is actually an organizational area of weakness, unless Buffalo wants to help us fill the gaping hole next to Hedman when Salo leaves.

I'm content with dealing with that long term issue through the draft though, Roland McKeown is projected to go right around where we are drafting, looks like the perfect Yzerman type of player, high compete level, plus he is on the same team as Ikonen so he's gotten plenty of looks.

I'd do a deal around Pysyk and Erne. Think it fills needs for both teams.

No interest in Mcnabb. We need a righty, for starters...

Its gotta be Myers/Risto/Pysyk. We have Hedman, Carle, Koekkoek, Barbario on the left side long term. Need a righty if we are getting a defenseman.

Pysyk for Erne could work. It's really a scout's job to tell you how close each guy is to hitting his ceiling. Positionally and value-wise, it seems fair.

Pysyk or no deal. He's our only prospect power forward so I'd just assume we hang onto him for anything less.

Swap McNabb for Pysyk & I think TB would strongly consider. Otherwise they don't.

I'm a big fan of Pysyk but with the depth the Sabres have I would make the deal from a Buffalo pov as well.

How about Ott/Moulson, Stafford, and McNabb for Erne and a 2014 1st.

Please just stop - the vast majority of your proposals I read are horrible - and to me as someone who follows the Sabres almost embarrassing !

Would you make that deal from a TB perspective ?
