Provost Posted February 10 Share Posted February 10 (edited) Buffalo is an up and coming team but still has a tough time attracting UFAs without overpaying. To jump start their improvement, they could use our players. Ideally I would love to move Miller there, but as that probably isn't going to happen another deal would be interesting. To Buffalo: Demko Boeser Schenn To Van: 2024 1st round pick Luukkonen Samuellson Boeser basically replaces Okposo next year for the same cap hit which is an upgrade for them and they are deeper this year. They really need a goalie ready now as they can't rely on a 40 year old Anderson. We get some really nice futures, some cap space, and if we want we can find a bandaid veteran to play with Silovs for a couple years or go after Jarry in the offseason. Buffalo would really use a playoff appearance this year and aren't far out even with no real goaltending. Tage Thompson has changed the calculus for them and they should be pushing to leverage that rather than sitting back with status quo. Even after picking up these two players they have a crap ton of cap space next season to sign another couple of high end free agents. They could add Larkin and Severson overpaying them in the offseason and still have cap space to spare. Skinner-Thompson-Tuch Krebs-Larkin-Boeser Mittelstadt-Jost--Olofson Peterka-Cozens-Quinn Dahlin-Severson Power-Jokiharju Bryson-Lybibushkin Clague Demko Comrie Samuellson plays the right side and would be a big loss for them... maybe enough so we couldn't get as high as a 1st round pick... or have to add a 2nd or 4rd going the other way.
