Buffalo/Tampa Bay proposal

to Buffalo:
D Pavel Kubina
negotiable draft pick

to Tampa Bay:
D Jay McKee
D Andy Delmore


For the Sabres this resolves their problem of a top 4 right-sided defenseman who would look pretty nice playing with Zhitnik. Delmore hasn't fit in and it's been suggested is not being used the same way he was in Nashville and that's contributed to his lack of success. A Tampa journalist reported Delmore is on the blocks and that the Lightning may be interested. McKee looks like a player that desperately needs a change of scenery. I'm well aware McKee and Delmore are both hurt now but McKee is days away from coming back and Delmore's injury doesn't seem that bad to begin with. Tampa Bay does take on a bit of salary in this deal (Kubina makes 2.5 mil, Delmore and McKee 2.9 mil) so some interchangeable part could be thrown in. Thoughts?

The Bolts get ripped majorly in that deal. Not even close.

Delmore is worthless, and Kubina's value is higher than McKee's. No dice.

I wouldn't call Delmore worthless. He can score and lead a powerplay but needs to be paired with a Defensive Defensemen to be real effective. But don't expect Mckee to be moved, his worth is huge in Buffalo. Although the Sabres would love to get a player like Sarich back.

Judging by the way our defense has played down here, we don't have a defensive defenseman to pair him with.
