The Sabres need a Center v7trillion

As you may know, the Sabres biggest offensive problem is that their best goalscorer (Vanek) does not play well with their best center (Roy) and that Jochen Hecht has been terrible in his role as the number 2 which has hurt Pominville as well as Vanek lately. This throws the Sabres firmly in the market for a Center for the second scoring line.

The center must:
Be a good set up man.
Enter the zone well.
Handle physical play. He doesn't have to hit everybody, he just has to be somewhat difficult to take off the puck.

Good defensive play is a plus, but it won't make or break him, as 3 of the Sabres ideal top 4 wingers play on the PK and are solid in their own zone.
Physical play/leadership is another plus, as it is something the Sabres sorely lack with Gaustad/Rivet/Kaleta all out with injuries at the moment.

For realistic proposals, the Sabres are primarily looking to move:
Afinogenov
Kotalik
Spacek
Connolly
+ Picks and prospects.

For more blockbuster-ish moves, it's just easier to post an untouchables list:
Vanek
Roy
Stafford
Rivet
Lydman
Sekera
Miller

Players who only are involved if a large return is coming back Buffalo's way.
Pominville
Hecht
Gaustad
Paille

Spezza would be perfect for your team but I dont think you would have the pieces to get him.

It would probably involve the moving of Roy or Vanek, something the Sabres just don't want to do.

If Nylander would accept Buffalo, you can take him.

Losing Vanek to gain Spezza is kinda pointless

It is impossible to include M.I.A. in a realistic proposal, since he has no value.

Ottawa would probably ask for Roy+. Not only does that undermine the deal from the Sabres POV, right now I'm inclined to take Roy and his contract over Spezza and his.

Tyler Arnason for future considerations or a conditional pick for which the conditions shall never be met. He meets all three of your criteria. <_<

He's also the second coming of Wayne Gretzky.


Or at least, that's what Quenneville told me.

I think I would take that deal. Spezza has the ability to clear 100 points, something I'm not sure Roy would be able to do. Although somebody did mention before that trading Vanek for Spezza would be pointless.

I'd have been happy with Wellwood and Jussi Jokinen.


How do we claim Matt Ellis and pass on them.

poor biron, once again stuck behind miller

i would probably do this deal. maybe throw in another player and make it a 1st (i'd love to have 2 1sts in this draft).

I'm going to have to pass. Briere is just too injury prone for my liking right now and taking Nitty means that the Sabres future rests on Enroth, something I don't wanna do just yet.
