DET - BUF (A Big Ole' Blockbuster!)

2014 1st Round Pick
2015 3rd Round Pick
Thomas Tatar
Xavier Ouellet
Johan Franzen
Jakub Kindl
Joakim Andersson


for

Tyler Myers
Chris Stewart

2014 2nd Round Pick


Detroit needs right-handed players. They need a top four defenseman. And they need a big power forward. Buffalo is in full rebuild mode; and there have been rumors about them being open to trading Myers for a while. And from what I've gathered, they acquired Stewart to be another big trading chip.

So with this trade, Detroit fills their two biggest needs, and Buffalo acquires a lot of great players whom can impact their future in a positive way, and players who can also make their roster more competitive in an immediate way.

Am I way off with this idea? Or is this something that fans of both teams would be alright with? As a Detroit fan, I'd pull the triggers on the trade without hesitation. But I'm not sure if this is something that would even intrigue Buffalo fans in the slightest. So how about a discussion about this trade idea?! Maybe even a discussion that doesn't involve tearing me apart for having a horrendous trade proposal... pretty please?

I feel like it's an overpayment too... but if that's what it would take, then I'd still do it. Fortunately for Detroit, they have so many good prospects right now, that they could do an overpayment like this without destroying their future. But maybe that's just me that feels this way?

May as well buy Detroit some cigarettes too, because they like to smoke after they've been ****ed.

But seriously... really really bad.

Seems like a lot to give up but I don't know value on the Wings side. Franzen+Tats+1st+3rd seems reasonable for Myers+2nd but I don't really see Franzen leaving Detroit.

Well I'm quickly seeing that my proposal is seeming quite bad. Anyone having any suggestions on how to manipulate this idea into something that makes more sense?

Detroit overpays way to much on that 1, no deal.

Huge overpayment on Detroit's side. LOL

The only one with any remote value from Buffalo is Myers. Stewart could conceivably return to form and probably would with Detroit but I don't see why Detroit would make this deal.

Eh, this is really bad, Myers isn't worth that much. Stewart has very little value to the Sabres so they will probably move him on the cheap, while the 2nd is just a throw-in.

This trade is essentially 2014 1st + Joakim Andersson + Tatar for Myers. I can't really justify all those pieces, plus why would Detroit move their highest pick since Lapointe for Myers AND have no 2nd round pick. The more I think about it, this is really just a terrible deal.

I think it looks really bad when it's all bunched up together like that. But does this still look like way too much?

Franzen
Kindl
3rd Round Pick


for

Chris Stewart

and

Thomas Tatar
Xavier Ouellet
Joakim Andersson
1st Round Pick


for

Tyler Myers
2nd Round Pick


I know it's the exact same proposal I initially made. But I feel like it looks less ridiculous when it's broken up like this. Or am I just crazy, and still way off?

Detroit gives up A LOT here. This is a what you'd give up for an established #1 and Myers is not that. Tatar, Ouellet, and 1st is an impressive package by itself. I'd boil this deal down to:

Tatar, Ouellet, Det 1st

For

Myers, small +

Trims a lot of the fat from either side. Still don't think Detroit goes for it.

Myers is an excellent player, but honestly, I just don't think he's a #1D. Now, could he develop or have a breakout season, sure, but this a lot to give up for someone who does not fulfill exactly what Detroit needs.

But, yeah, I'd be all on board if a player like Marchenko was involved instead of Ouellet.

For those who say this is OVERPAYMENT from the Red Wings, I disagree. I'm not sure I do this deal. The key players in this scenario are Myers and Tatar. I choose Myers over Tatar.

Chris Stewart will likely garner a mid to low 1st round pick. The Sabres 2nd will be the last pick in the 1st round (arguably). Tyler Myers, I would consider trading for a top 5 pick, but not a 6-10 pick.

So where are we? A top 6 pick and two other 1st round picks for Tatar and what?

Except you guys would have another first round draft pick this year, and 2 proven top 6 goal scoring wingers, a good 3rd/4th line center, decent third pairing defenseman, and one of our top 3 defensive prospects. This proposal is realbad.

Detroit picks 15, the Sabres pick 31. Historically, this would be a 2nd round pick to move up.

I think Myers is better than Tatar. Why do the Sabres do this deal? Especially knowing that Stewart will return at least a 1st.

Also, we don't need any 4-6 d-men. We have plenty to share with others.

So get rid of Stewart and the 1st in the proposal, it still leaves that glut of players and a 2nd for Myers and a 2nd. This deal heavily favors the Sabres.

Why does Detroit do this? Just because Myers is a righty?

Detroit doesn't need another young defenseman. Especially one who isn't better than Dekeyser and may not be better than Smith with the way Smitty is trending upwards.

Also, why would we want Stewart? We have winger depth out the ass and its not like Stewart is some power forward with a great work ethic or who uses his size.

Sabres have no need for Kindl or Oulette.

If I am trading Myers, it's for Bennett, not Tatar. I just don't think these are good trading partners.

You can keep most of these.

The pieces that sabres would want are Tatar and the first.

Not sure if they move Myers for that or if Detroit would do it.
