    Definitely not going to happen. Why would Ottawa take on a boat anchor like Okposo?
    I think For
    Duchene with an extension in place.
    for
    1st+Nylander+B prospect(Guhle)

    Okposo is negative value even at that amount retained, Sean Malone is a meh prospect. There will be better offers for just Duchene then this that don't involve taking an anchor.

    As a Sabres fan I wouldn't want to pay what it would cost for Duchene.

    I don't like him as a player but he holds a lot of value. OP is nowhere close to being enough.

    You don't like him as a player? Can you please explain this? I am thinking he is the guy that can make our secondary scoring respectable and gives us a shot at playoffs.A signed Duchene I would offer our 2019 first and 2020 first plus prospect

    Ottawa could almost certainly get more than this for Duchene. Taking on Okposo contract (even retained) is going to be a no from Ottawa.

    Lol

    This is honestly closer if you take out Duchene

    Okposo has 4 more years after this one, it would take at least a 2nd to get rid of him... Boedker has some value... Malone wouldnt get claimed on waivers

    You realize you are not actually talking directly to Pierre Dorion with these crap offers ?

    It's fair to say that Buffalo isn't a great trade partner for Ottawa. While I would be one of the few interested in Boedker surprisingly, Duchene fits the "desperate team" trying to go all in. Unfortunately, Kyle Okposo is the next version of Moulson for our team.
