    This is going to be an incredible offseason, Dahlin in the lottery and ROR and Tavares up the middle

    Plan the parade

    What is this about? Just the opinion of Bobby Mac? Or an actual rumour?

    ROR might be on the way out of Buffalo, like any C available his name will be tied to Montreal

    That’s the problem when there’s at least 60 Cs in the NHL that are upgrades for us

    Seems to me just a pundit connecting dots. Maybe the recent soundbyte by ROR is tilting the balance.

    OReilly is getting slower, Im not sure its a good idea to trade for him unless you bring a real first line center like Tavares and Oreilly becomes your scond line center... that being said, I sure wouldnt overpay for this guy, no way we include our 2018 first round pick for him.. Galchenyuk straight up for him sounds fair deal to me..

    O'reilly is a real first line center. But I agree, only go for him if we get Tavares and Dahlin.

    O'Reilly is not a first line center, he is a fine 2nd on a good team...

    61 points on the worst team in the league and is elite defensively. Easily a number 1 center.

    He is playing about the whole 2 minutes on every PPs the Sabres get with Eichel and cie since the Sabres think they are a powerhouse like Pittsburg and while most NHL teams roll 2 PP units, so I would say his stats are slightly inflated but I can guarentee you that if Bergevin brings him in a first line center role, you will cry your life.. O'reilly hasnt the skills of a first line center, just watch him play a bit, its quite evident...

    As long as his "interests outside of hockey" no longer include drunkenly crashing his truck into a Tom Horton's then I'm all in.

    Juulsen could and should be in the play if we're dealing for ROR. Buffalo is in desperate need of defensively sound dmen, Juulsen is that plus he's young and sorta expendable (not really unless it's for the right kinda deal but I think ROR is that). Obviously that's just one of the pieces that would go to Buffalo in that trade.

    Only if there’s more to the plan than just ROR

    His average shift on the PP is 47sec, not sure what you are talking about.

    We have nothing that would interest the Sabres except our 2018 1st.

    Not even close to declining. The guy has been consistently putting up between 55 and 65 points in the last 6 of 7 seasons (the 7th season being the lock-out shortened season where he had 20 points in 29 games, which is a pace of 57 points in 82 games).

    Unless we’re getting Tavares, f*** no.

    O’Reilly as our 1C will produce the same results that Plekanec in his prime as our 1C did: nothing.

    Between Galchenyuk and Drouin I’d rather keep Galchenyuk.

    Is there an area Drouin is better than Galchenyuk? Maybe vision? But not by much.

    Getting rid of your best prospect without getting back a legit top 6C is amateurish GMing.

    Gallagher, Beaulieu, pick. Or stack up any combination of our 'best' prospects: Mac, Scherbak, DLR, 1st rounder etc. It's not like Buffalo gave up a Lindros-esque ransom to get ROR. Surely we could have topped Grigs, Zadorov etc. if we so chose.

    This is where the name Gallagher should come up.
    All depends on the draft order....if we can pick either Zadina, Svechnikov or Whalstrom, i would move Gallagher and a sweetener for ROR and that should be enough for Buffalo

    MTL is also in desperate need of decent dmen. Trading the "best" of our prospects for over-agers and other team's projects is partially why we're in this situation. Will Reilly or Valiev be suitable replacements for Juulsen?
    Why are we trading pieces that we need. Robbing Peter to pay Paul.
