According to you, but not the NHL players that were polled.

What are you talking about. I have an opinion that he is not ready and you think he is some all star already. He has a lot of work to do.

i dont think he's an all start already, i think he has the POTENTIAL to be one.. and you didn't say that you "didn't think he was ready"... you said he was "not striking you right" and you cited and posted a video of one play to back up the claim.... that was hysterical.

Shall I post ONE play from camp as justification for my opinion?

trading Myers for Heatley is moronic on so many levels.

Ya please do because this is the last video I have seen of him. It's from last prospect camp.

I don't want Pominville at $5.3 million.

Connolly, Stafford and Lydman for Heatley and a bottom six forward.

OMG your right. He got hit at a prospect camp. All hope is lost. Maybe we should post some vids of him going end to end in the dub. How about some vids from the world juniors where he and Aulie were arguably our best dmen. How about showing some video of him playing 30 minutes a night and completely controlling games in the WHL playoffs. You've shown two clips of his "bad play" where as I've seen him dominate players like Kane and Sonne and Kozun live. But your right we should trade him for a coke head with a bad attitude. And besides everyone talks about Murray not trading within the division but Darcy Regier already said he wouldn't do that, so I think that should end this discussion.

Sabres wont give up a center unless one is coming back. And Fisher is too much money.

He has size. Correct

He is a very good skater, and has exceptional skating for his size (speed and quickness)

He has a cannon for a shot (needs to work on accuracy IMO)

His positioning and awareness are very good

He is very vocal on the ice and seems to have natural leadership abilities

Not soft by any means

Loves to jump into the play and has a good outlet pass

I just don't understand the rationale for your opinion on Myers
I'm sorry but LAWL. Myers a cannon. Nope. As someone who has watched him progress over the years the one thing I wish he worked on the most was his shot. Ellis can shoot the puck. Myers cannot. Maybe he let some bombs go in prospects camp but when he was with Kelowna it was like a snail coming off his stick. Quite pathetic for someone who stands 6'8. I imagine once he puts on more weight power will come but last I saw it was the same old Myers shot.

Not many teams can afford to take Heatley without sending a high salary player back. It isn't going to be Vanek. Pominville is a downgrade from Heatley, but he's not a bad replacement. It doesn't make sense anyway for Buffalo to trade Connolly or Roy, as they're lacking in the centre department. Three roster players is also iffy unless you're sending a top 4 defenseman back as well.

The hate for Myers in this thread is laughable

Coming from a Rockets fan he was our best player last season by far, he's so solid and composed on the backend. Incredible skater, and is so intimidating at that size. When he hits it's usually a big one and goes end-to-end regularly. He's the complete package and could have played top 4 defense last season. He'll be stud and Buffalo would be nuts to trade this guy, even in a package for Heatley.

Buffalo wouldn't do this, and Sens would likely want to trade Schubert and/or Smith along too.

From a Buffalo perspective don't even say the words 'Tyler Myers'. Ain't gonna happen. Also, highly unlikely that Derek Roy will be included, give the Sabres serious lack of skill at center.

What about something involving Stafford, Pominville and Weber as a start....

Flame away
If Roy or Myers arent getting traded why does ottawa give you heatley?
