Drew Stafford to EDM

I love the way he plays I think he is the type of player edmonton needs right now. I've heard lots that Buffalo may try to trade him because they have so much RW depth (or has that faded because of his play of late?) . So what would it take?

Please realistic proposals!

Right now there probably going to want one of Cogliano or Gagner at least, and even then maybe not.

I would think they would be interested in Gagner coming back. It probably has to be for a hockey trade, not draft picks with a good 2nd line center coming back.

gagner or cogliano would not be enough, even if the sabres moved drew which i doubt. he's playing great hockey right now and those guys arent playing near his caliber, cole and penner included. plus regier would never deal with that #### ###### of a GM the oilers have, mr. kevin lowe

No, maybe Nilsson and a pick/prospect? Stafford would not be able to take a Cogliano/Gganer back.. no way. Nilsson has been great of late, 7 points in 6 games or something like that, And has very good potential as does Stafford, a trade like Nilsson and Chorney for Stafford was what I was expecting..

At least Sam Gagner AND Erik Cole.

Stafford will not be traded anyways though...

OK so what your saying is Staffords play of late makes him more valuable than Cogliano or Gagner? give me a break! Nilsson has been good lately does that mean that we could get Pomminville for him? Come on.. and our GM is not Lowe anymore.. Tamballini.

Your asking for Stafford at his highest point. The Sabres have been waiting 3 years for him to become the player he is showing to be. Last year when they had Bernnier, and Kotalik wasn't UFA you probably would have gotten him for that, maybe even less.

Yeah it's might be a while before Drew is in Oiler's colours. I could see us pitching him an offer this summer when he hits RFA, But I'd expect the sabres to match anything short of crazy. So more likely we'll have to wait till Stafford hits UFA before we see him play for us.

Sucks to have to wait, I was really hoping for him at the draft.

I didnt say he couldnt.. But Cogliano has more potential than him, is a better 2 way player, and has already shown he can produce more than Stafford.

How do you rate potential? Hes not outscoring him this year. I know Cogs is a good young player, but i think that youre biased in your opinion here. You have to give to get right?

I might give you the "better two-way" player, but you are going to seriously have to explain the "more potential" and "already shown he can produce more" parts of that statement.

Care to share why you think that's the case?

42 points for Cogliano v 35 for stafford in 2008 with cogliano playing 18 more games. Stafford has 35 to 27 right now with 2 less games played, so how has he "shown he can produce more than Stafford?" also a minus player to drew's +12

Here's the question:

Why would the Sabres want to trade Stafford?

Here's what the Sabres need: #2 center, #1 D-man.

If we're not getting one of those back, how does trading Stafford make this team better? So if you're not giving us one of those back in a deal, you had better vastly overpay in futures (think 1st round picks), or there is no reason for the Sabres to even consider moving him. We are not in rebuilding (and even if we were, Stafford is the type of guy you keep on the team as part of he rebuild). You're talking about a young winger who could get ~70 pts per season in his prime and a potential top-line winger.

Nilsson and pick/prospect is most certainly not going to cut it.
