I've explained why BUF could not trade for Stamkos. They do not have the cap space and they still have roster spots to fill with their own RFAs.  

Stamkos is untradeable. Not because he is a bad player.  Simply because his contract is $8.5m for another 4 years.  With a flat salary cap and so many teams needing to shed salary there is simply not enough liquidity in the system. Too many sellers, not enough buyers.  Add that to his injury problems and his NMC and you get an untradeable contract.  The only teams that can take on salary dumps are OTT or DET, and there are younger, healthier and less expensive options than Stamkos. 

Stamkos is not untradeable. Yes, it is highly unlikely he gets moved due to his NMC but if a team wanted him bad enough, it is not impossible as your arguments seem to claim.
