    With an extension, yes. Without one, no. Nylander is healthy finally and has the potential to destroy the Sabres. At least with an extension, there is something still there on the Sabres if that happens.

    I’d rather hold onto nylander...he’s younger.

    I want my team to be a winner and st this point I think duchene isn’t...

    Think Ottawa could get more, even as a rental. And even factoring in Dorion.

    Nylander hasn't even proven himself to be an NHLer at this point.

    What the hell does destroy the Sabres even mean ?? Is he going to work within the organization to derail the season ? English, if you please, next time.

    While it's way too early to write Alex off, this 100% isn't a return I think Ottawa or it's fans would be happy with.

    So basically par the course with what we are used to with Dorion

    And when did that ever matter? They weren't happy with Bishop, Spezza, Zibanejad, Duchene, Hoffman or Karlsson trades. The Brassard trade though was pretty decent. Almost as good a return as Karlsson actually.

    Not great for Ottawa. Considering what they gave up they would need to kill with any Duchene deal. High-end prospect/solid young NHLer and a 1st at minimum I would think.

    Nylander is trending upwards, Duchene has one season left on his deal...

    The Sabres don't have the cap space to make that kind of deal work.

    Clearly, means have multiple point games a lot or score big goals against them. Using some thought about what something I said could possibly mean, if you please, next time.

    Dorion doesn't trade in conference. If the Sabres wanted an overpaid former Av as their center they should have kept O'Reilly.

    He's a UFA. Sabres don't want him after this year (unlike Skinner) so why?

    IMO Buffalo could really use Duchene for a year to let Middlestat get his feet wet as a winger or a 3C. That being said, that's to steep a price for a one year player.

    Can't afford to keep him past this year so unless he's staying on a sweetheart of a deal, or the sabres take the world by storm and look like a playoff possible team this doesn't make enough sense. Plus I think ottawa can do better from a contendor....

    This is HF though, potential is far more important than results.

    A. Nylander has produced at less than 0.5 ppg clip in the AHL...
