At a $4,000,000 cap hit, it may seem a bit expensive, but I think Stafford's well documented struggles in Buffalo could bode well for a team that is desperate to add a RW that can score, and perhaps Stafford to NJ could offer a fresh start to the struggling winger and maybe even help boost Zajac's confidence a bit.

 

Thoughts?

If you make that move, it should have been done when #9 was here, as ZP wanted some American buddies in the room to hold hands with. So unless #9 comes back in the deal, I say pass on Stafford.

$4million is what scares me, however, I think if we can get him "on the cheap" using only a few scarce pieces here and there it is something worth entertaining.

I'm not sure how Zach had any relevance in this whatsoever.

If he could be acquired at a discount, sure. Are the Sabres lacking in the D department?

How many years on his deal?

Im pretty sure they are best buds and one of them was the best man for the others wedding. He is just cracking a joke I hope.

I'd rather have Pominville.  I don't think Stafford is that great, and wouldn't give up much to get him.  Can definitely see Buffalo trade him at the deadline though.

I believe he has 2 years left on his deal which pays him $4 mil per.

 

I'm not sure what Buffalo needs, but they certainly haven't been all that great defensively this year.  I think perhaps a good two-way center would serve their needs, and with the addition of Loki to our center depth chart, that makes a guy like Josefsson expendable and perhaps an attractive option for Buffalo.

 

I'm thinking Jofer and a pick would be enough to land a very underproductive and expensive Stafford from Buffalo.

Send Tallinder there, they need to get Myers back on track.

Pominville is arguably one of their best forwards so I don't see Buffalo even considering a trade for Pominville.  Please note, I also would prefer Pominville over Stafford too.

$4M is reasonable for a 50 point, 27 year old player. Give them back tallinder and there's $3M.

He has two years after this season.

Stafford is terrible. No thanks. Id rather keep Clarkson and pay him if the only alternative is Stafford.

I think Stafford would be a serviceable winger, however, the $4 million scares me, unless we can purge ourself of Tallinder's salary in the process.

I think that pretty much sums it up.. If I could name a kind of player that Lou would NEVER trade for.. its a player that is, "underproductive and expensive." 

 

But he's Lou, I guess if he sees something he sees something.

 

Definitely don't get your hopes up :e-drama:
