Trade: Myers, Stafford, Armia, Lemieux, + Low 1st for Kane, Bogosian, and Kasdorf

Recommended Posts

Isn't Bogosian from around the western New York area?

 

And, for those touting the need to acquire players from the top of the draft, we just acquired two top four picks.

4 first round picks and a Calder winner for TO and a d that hasn't produced in two years... Wow. Winnipeg must be relieved

What they had wasn't working. Bold move. Only part I don't like is losing Lemieux. But they get a 23 year old first line power forward.

I mean, really. The whining about "No! Not our precious Lemieux" is just silly.

 

You gotta give value to get value. And we got the best player in the trade, by far.

Yes.  Messena up by Pottsdam (?).

Kasdorf a college goalie. very good numbers a couple years back, missed most of last season, mediocre numbers this year.

Very strong freshman year and was injured last year. This year RPI is an awful team, so it's tough to judge him on that. The description I have is that he's a good goalie on a bad team, but probably not an NHLer.

Please God no, I like Lemieux and that's way to much for too little

Brian Little staying in Winnipeg, I think??? :P

 

and I'm never buying another Sabres jersey.  Every Jersey I have purchased for myself is of a player that gets traded...

I'm burning my Sabres Armia jersey too

Overpayment. I would be alright with this if they didn't include the first.

Come on guys. Don't go wobbly. They gave up virtually nothing. A piece of garbage and some potential. Got two real players in return. Welcome to the cold, hard world of GMTM. Feel so much better about the rebuild now. Y'all were warned, by Tim himself actually in so many words, don't fall in love with the kids.

 

Exactly.  This is phase II of the rebuild, and the unique nature of this deal allows phase I, the tank, the finish in style.  GMTM told us this was the plan, and that he would convert hoarded assets to NHL ready talent.

Did the specifics of Kane's shoulder injury ever come out? Obviously Murray isn't too worried, but I'd still like to know what was being repaired.

Alright, so Stafford is gone, he was leaving this offseason.  

 

This really breaks down to Armia and Lemeiux.  So we'll have to see what Kane brings to the table.  Over the last 24 month's he's had two major injuries a handful of healthy scratches and countless other issues with Jets management.  Myers in his career has gone up and down and really if you break it down, Bogosian is an interesting addition.  Armia was really starting to come around, and getting more out of his play.  Overall if Kane can get adjusted, this is a big plus.  You cannot create skill, scoring ability and Kane is a game breaker when he's healthy and on.  Furthermore, he's out the rest of the year, pretty much concludes the tank.  I trust Tim Murray, so we'll sack up and move on.  Bogosian, Ristolainen and Zadorov.

Both of these.

 

Holy mackerel.

I'm burning my (insert name) Isles 1st round pick jersey.

 

So will Beniot or Messaros get Myers playing time? Hodgson in for Stafford.

From an NHL perspective, Kane and Bogosian clearly beats Stafford and Myers, the question is, did we give up too much potential to make that upgrade? I think we may have.

That said, Kane Reinhart Ennis might be fun to watch.

 

Biggest trade since Mogilny, maybe even since Turgeon/Lafontaine.

 

The culture change from Regier is complete.

GMTM just put his stamp on the team. Ennis is the only player of any significance left that you'll call Darcy's

On a side note, solid job by whomever merged the threads.

Absolutely hate this trade. :thumbdown:  Not high on Kane at all AND he is damaged goods. Sabres gave up WAY too much.

 

Maybe Murray thought he was trading for Pat Kane?

that seems like a kings ransom to me.  Is he and Bogosian really worth that much?

 

and I'm never buying another Sabres jersey.  Every Jersey I have purchased for myself is of a player that gets traded...

My Myers jersey is now obsolete.  :censored:  And I hate the trade if it is indeed done. I think we overpaid.
