    That would be an amazing coup. One of the only players I would dip into our first round stockpile to acquire.

    If the Panthers want to clear cap space, the Sabres have a lot to offer in the way of futures.

    Nylander + STL 1st + if Florida wants to get rid of anything that costs money (which seems to be their thing)

    If only we were an expansion team then maybe they'd pay us to take him.:sarcasm:

    I thought these clauses were only valid with the team he signed with? Thus, the NMC being voided for good once he was moved to Buffalo:dunno:

    Only if the clause hadn't kicked in yet. Skinner waived to come here, so the clause stays.

    Yeah, was just coming in here to say Nylander + 1st for Huberdeau. Six-plus years of team control on Nylander and a mid-1st is a pretty attractive pair of assets, and accomplishes their goal of clearing cap.

    I would add another piece too. Would be totally worth it.

    If push came to shove, I probably would as well. With that said, I'm far more inclined to believe that Hoffman would be who Florida moves if they're clearing cap for Bob and Panarin. And I would like Hoffman, too, but Huberdeau is certainly better.

    Interesting graphic, but entirely different situations for both players - one is a pending free agent and the other has 4 years left on contract at a really good price. You're either taking on hefty cap by signing Skinner (which is likely what we'll end up doing) or you trade away solid assets for Huberdeau's beautiful/cap friendly contract. neither will come cheap. Having said that, anyone should want that Huberdeau contract. If the reports are right that Florida is dangling Huberdeau in a trade for Panarin and The Bobs, then florida is being remarkably short sighted. Panarin is easily the best asset coming back in the trade and he has been adamant that he will test FA market. Even if Florida resigns him, it won't be for cheap. Meanwhile, they give up a long term, cost effective asset for a chance to spend big money. Columbus should take this deal and run.

    I don't see how that makes an argument that Skinner isn't worth the extra $$$ and term, if that's what Stimson is going for.

    My god I would be livid. I'd rather he sit on his hands and do nothing than move out Girgs-Larry for scraps. You can't magically replace that kind of hard work with younger players. They're still young enough, still RFA's, won't command outrageous raises. Both should be locked up imo so we don't have to worry about those slots at all going forward. Those 2 are going to drive opponents nuts in a playoff series.

    Agreed. He'd be a fantastic target. He's an established player that has several more years on a cheap deal. Tallon is looking to clear cap space to land a couple big fish. He's one of the few names bandied about that I'd consider moving those 1sts for. I also don't think much of Tallon as a GM, I think we could get him for a very reasonable price.

    Huberdeau at that cap hit is a dream.

    Like many others one if the 1sts+nylander+x came to mind. I wonder if they'd want olofsson

    Do it Botts, please.. he could be a core member of this teams future.

    I would give Nylander and a 1st and that's saying a lot since you know how much I believe in Nylander.

    I dont think that moves the needle much for FLA, I just think other teams could offer a more established package. But, its Tallon, so ya never know, I'd just want more than two maybes for Hubs.

    My thinking exactly. My first instinct was actually why not both? :dunno:

    Who do you value more RoR or Huberdeau? I personally think Huberdeau is more valueable. And when the RoR trade happened we all said we didn’t get enough for a player who wanted out, was a cancer, etc.

    We can start with a first, a very good prospect and a roster player.

    Nylander + Rodrigues + 1st? Is that even enough? Maybe they want Guhle too.

    Because he’s worse defensively, I guess. A negative on the shots against is better.

    It doesn't matter because we have a GM who is in no way smart or shrewd enough to pull off a deal like that. We are the ones who give up our valuable assets for scraps, not the other way around.
