If Chicago had to move the Buf this year, would you trade our 1st for him?

totally hypothetical. You would never make this trade last year because Hall showed too much promise, but this year.... maybe. If there were a team that had to shed salary by moving a proven asset like Byfuglein, I might entertain trading our 1st.

The first overall pick? So one of RNH or Larsson for Byfuglien? No, not even close. Byfuglien is good but RNH and Larsson will be much better then him.

I would gladly trade Los Angeles' first for him, but not our first.

I'd definitely do our 31st or our 19th and be happy about it, but the 1st... If I got offered that I would just laugh my a** off

I'd take Byfuglien (though I'd be a little weary due to his $5.2 cap hit, but he's proven to me that he's a good player this season), but not for our 1st overall.

I just keep thinking:

MPS-Gagner-Byfuglien

two big cycling wingers aside Gagner, and both are decent defensively, and one is nasty physical.

They'd be a handful if both MPS and Gagner develop somewhat properly.

Am I missing something? Or did he say Chicago instead of Atlanta and nobody else mentioned it...

I wouldn't even trade the Kings first rounder for Byfuglien. Well, maybe the Kings first, but more likely I would consider the 31st and a player.

Perhaps Cogs/Souray to Winnipeg for Buf...oh wait, he will be the face seen on every billboard in that city in the coming days!

Wow this is flame central. However.

"You would never make this trade". Exactly.

A team that "had to shed salary". What team?

"like Byfuglein" So not him but who else?

These are good questions and not good insults or smilies.

If we could get an extra centerman that could score, that would be a ridiculous 3 lines

Hall - RNH - Eberle
Omark - XXXX - Hemsky
PRV - Gagner - Byfuglien

I could get used to that pretty happily lol

How in your mind do Cogs and Souray belong in the same sentence? Cogs improved his defensive play a lot last year. Souray was a below average AHL'er.
