Trade Possibilities For The Sabres

Here are a few different scenarios for trading the core part of the Sabres in order to commence our rebuild.

-----------------------------------------

Thomas Vanek and Drew Stafford

Scenario #1

To Nashville: Thomas Vanek, Drew Stafford, 2015 5th Round Pick

To Buffalo: Craig Smith, Austin Watson, Brendan Leipsic, 2014 1st, 2015 2nd, 50% Retained Salary of Vanek and Stafford

Scenario #2

To Minnesota: Thomas Vanek and Drew Stafford

To Buffalo: Eric Haula, Zack Phillips, 2015 1st, 2015 2nd, 50% Retained Salary of Vanek and Stafford

Analysis: Personally, I would rather take the Nashville deal out of these two. I know everyone would want Charlie Coyle in any deal with Minnesota, but I think they are keen on keeping him. In the Nashville deal, we get a 40 point scorer in Smith, two prospects with vast potential, and two high draft picks.

-----------------------------------------

Ryan Miller and Tyler Myers

Scenario #1

To Philadelphia: Ryan Miller and Tyler Myers

To Buffalo: Sean Couturier, 2015 1st, Mark Alt, 50% Retained Salary of Miller

Scenario #2

To Edmonton: Ryan Miller and Tyler Myers

To Buffalo: 2014 1st, 2015 3rd, Toni Rajala, Martin Gernat, rights to Sam Gagner, 50% Retained Salary of Miller

Analysis: I would rather take the Philadelphia deal out of these two. Yes, in the Edmonton deal, Buffalo would get more pieces, and Sam Gagner, but there is no guarantee he signs. In the Philadelphia deal, the Sabres would get basically two 1st Round Picks and an up and coming defenseman.
