Yes

Would you make that trade for Ferland? Let's say pick 27th overall and a prospect.

Can we still do Roy for malkin? 

No.  The Sabres don't have a Roy anymore.  We have to substitute somebody else.  Ellie, perhaps?

I'm unwilling to do that trade, Pitt needs to add

Hell no.

Wasnt that the initial asking price for Patrick Kane as well, plus a player?

Rentals just aren’t getting what they used to.

But I thought it was a buyers market? *wet fart*

When the dust settles on evening of the February 25th and the NHL Insiders perform their post mortem on the trade deadline it probably will be a buyers market. No GM, well maybe Peter Chiarelli, is willing to pay  full price for a player he can get at a discount in a few weeks.

Botterill will set the market when he signs Skinner.  Until then he's a potential UFA trade target and the market is going to act accordingly.  Same with Bobbo and Breadman in CBJ.

If that is the price for Ferland... we might know why things are a little slow on the trade front. 

The price for every single player that’s got a name at least 70% of hockey fans have heard is a first and a prospect. Once in a while you’ll get the GM dumb enough to pay that price (Gaustad/Martin Erat for instance).

Good call TW, and glad to see you again.

I like Ferland's "potential", as a 2 to 3 yr Sabres come the off season when he's a UFA, but I'm not moving any of those 1st's unless the return fits a solid player control scenario for the team.

How the #### does a team that's used a 1st round pick (oftentimes THE #1 pick) on forwards for roughly 11 of the past 12 seasons (Nurse being the only definite exception ottomh) STILL need forwards?

Well, for starters, Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson, one for one.

LOL.

The question was actually rhetorical.  They did hit the Nail with another one.

I just like saying "the trade is one for one". It makes me laugh every time.

I forgot about Yakupov. What a mess.

Remember the Fail for Nail Campaign on WGR?

Send them Skinner <ducks for cover>

Not a bad idea actually. Tell Skins to go enjoy McDavid and a playoff run, then talk with Botterill on 7/1.

Send them Skinner, Scandella (they need a solid mid pair LHD with more than the "rental tag) and Okposo (they need a winger better than Lucic) and Bailey or Buffalo 2nd rd pick 2021.

Get back Puljujarvi, 1st unprotected and Lucic with 33% retained.

Re-sign Skinner in the off season, I'd rather have 4 mil instead of 6 mil for 4 more seasons (Okposo to Lucic variant) and that unprotected 1st.

Chiarelli may just be that dumb to except this...…….seriously.

Nope. I really tend to ignore stuff like that to be honest.
