To Vancouver:
Luke Adam

To Buffalo:
Manny Malhotra

Why Vancouver does this: With the emergence of Jordan Schroeder, Manny has become the odd man out on the Canucks. Lapierre is more suited to be the fourth line centre and ideally, the wingers on the fourth line should be tough, energy players. Luke Adam is a solid prospect who's also the odd man out in Buffalo so this trade makes sense for both sides. The trade also shores up some cap space for the Canucks which can be beneficial if they want to add any pieces at the deadline.

Why Buffalo does this: The Sabres are the worst face-off team in the league so this trade gives them one of the better face-off men in the league. Manny can slot in anywhere in the bottom six in Buffalo and will benefit the Sabres greatly as the season goes on. Adam is a chip that they are willing to deal simply because he does not fit anywhere within the Sabres system but is still a good prospect for another team.

I can understand a deal like this if the Canucks were looking like they are going to tank this year but they will have a chance of going far in the playoffs again, as long as the team is healthy and playing well going in. Malhotra would be more valuable for a long playoffs than a B level prospect that would likely never see the light of day in Vancouver. Malhotra will probably not be resigned after this year and I think he deserves his chance to go for the cup with Vancouver one last time.

I can't really see Buffalo doing this honestly, isn't Adam one of there best prospects?

Manny as a rental at 2.5, I just don't see it. Manny won't get us much in return, he is far more valuable to us.
