Buffalo STILL needs a center

No prospect off limits, Vanek, Miller, and Myers are off limits, Roy basically is too, though, if you wanted to move Buffalo two centers and took Roy as part of a package, I'd listen.

Any and all picks in 2012 are on the table.

And...go

Edit: Buffalo STILL needs another center. I'd say Vanek, Miller, Myers, Roy and all the new acquisitions are off limits. Let's try it again

Start with Ennis and probably sprinkle in some Adam/Kassian.

Add a touch of a pick.

Let it dry.

Then serve.

Enjoy.

Ennis, Kassian, Foligno & 2012 1st

for

Spezza

Too rich? Yes, but he's not moving for less. Best option: sign Richards

I think that is a very fair deal that would help both sides. Well done sir.

Not arguing that that is what it would take to get Spezza, but if you think that's good for the Sabres you're mistaken.

It's probably an overpayment on their part.

To be honest don't really know much about Foligno but you could probably take him and the 1st out and add a lesser prospect and that should get it done.

Sabres would never ship out their two most physical forwards with skill to a divisional rival...No, not even for Spezza.

I'd do the deal if you turned Kassian into Psysk or a 2013 1st. The value's probably there, but the Sabres can't afford to move two big, physical forward prospects.

To Colorado:

Luke Adam
Mark Pysyk
Jhonas Enroth
Flames 2012 2nd
Buffalo 2012 2nd

To Buffalo: Statsny

Although I hope we can get Richards and develop a few of our own centers until Richards begins to fade.

Spezza is not going anywhere, and especially not to a division rival.

We just added like 8 forward prospects. We can afford to hang on to young, established star talent.

Something with Jordan Staal and Tyler Ennis as the two centerpieces might work well for both the Sabres and the Pens

Buffalo offers something along the lines of Sekera/Gragnani + Foligno/Adam for your 1st line Center +major salary dump + 2nd Rd. pick in 2012. How about that? /sarcasm/

I really like the Sens position after the draft. They have a ton of prospects in every position (besides G). They can decide if they keep they star player an try to make the playoff this season or trade him (for an overpayment), go for a top 5 pick and have a solid core like Edmonton and LA, only that you did it in 2 years.

But seriously, would a guy like Dustin Jeffrey be on the table?
He's not a bona fide Top 6 C but has shown a ton of promise.

Furthermore his probably either gonna be buried in Pittsburgh's depth chart (behind crosby, malkin, staal, et al.) or being converted to wing, both of which wouldn't be ideal.

Afaik he's injured until fall, so I don't know how that's gonna affect a possible deal, I'd love to see him in a swords-uniform, though.

Maybe Gragnani for Jeffrey straight up?

That looks really enticing from a Sabres fan POV.

I think Columbus is better off signing an UFA, but if they can't it done I'd love for that to happen. Unfortunately with Leopold being a part why Regehr came here, I doubt the Sabres would do it.

I really feel that they are going to go all out for Richards. They just made a great move for Regehr, who IMO will pair nicely with Myers as the teams top pairing. Which fortifies their defense (Myers-Regehr, Sekera-Weber, Leopold-Gragniani with Morrisonn, and maybe Montador in the mix as well). They have one of te best goalies in the league and a solid young backup. At forward they have just about everything except a true number one center. With Richards they'd be set, except for maybe signing a guy on a one year deal to be their third line center and able to fill in when one of Richards or Roy goes down.

If Richards doesn't sign with Buffalo, I believe they'll look to make a deal with Pittsburgh, likely something around Ennis. Which isn't too bad because even if they lost Ennis and still had Vanek, Pominville, Stafford, Gerbe, Boyes, Hecht, Kotalik, Kaleta, McCormick, Kassian and Foligno, they have plenty of depth that thy could move a winger in order to gain a centerman, even one as skilled as Ennis. Also by next year I see Armia getting a contract and playing in Rochester, Pegula won't be trying to do it on the cheap and wait till the last minute to sign him and bring him in the system (i.e. Pysyk).

All in all I definitely expect Buffalo to make some kind of big splash for a centerman or two via free agency or trade.

HOCKEY HEAVEN!!!!!!!!!!
