Mtl needs a center. When Danault says that you know its true. Now what can we sacrifice for him. let's see, he's 7.5 million a year for another 5 years I believe. So contract ends when he's 32 which is about the end of prime and he might start to fall back by then. So good contract in terms of year just a little stiff maybe in the dollar. Then Buff needs winger not centers so mtl offers they're big prize winger available. Ok let's try this:

Mtl: Patches, 2rd pick lowest one

Buff: Oreilly

If sabres are trading o’reilly, that means they are convinced they are not going to be ready to compete for a playoff spot yet again. Why would they take an older winger with one year term left? Terrible offer. If sabres do move OReilly, with the need for good centres around the league, they.

They would get a far better offer.

Or @UnbiasedJimmy maybe they know they have good center depth and with Mittestad ready for this season they would of had 4 really good center in Reinhart, Mittelstad, Eichel, Oreilly. Why not trade the one who has a big salary and is older for a winger that they desperately need to play with all those centers. that's where 35+goals Patvhes steps in. And your right why trade Oreilly for one year of Patches. This trade might have to be a sign and trade kind of thing.

For me it would have to be a good bargain contract if I’m buffalo in a sign and trade. Patches makes 4.5 I believe, and he deserves a raise for sure with the way the market is. But he’s coming off his worst season in 6 or 7 years and is not a guaranteed 35+ goals. So if I’m the sabres, I want his extension to be cheap to minimize the risk, and if I’m patches, I’m want to get paid what I’m worth after being a bargain for so many years. And if he’s taking a discount and giving up his right to go to UFA market, I don’t see Buffalo as the destination.
