Team Explanation
Looking for middle ground between two posts on the Caps side.

Vrana, today, would be tied with Reinhart as Buffalo's points leader. Vrana would be alone in 1st place on the Sabres right now for goals, even strength goals, and even strength points. Over the last two seasons, he has two more even strength goals than Eichel and a bit over a dozen more than Reinhart.

Panik would be tied for 8th in points on the Sabres right now, and tied for 5th in points among Sabres forwards with nine. There's term left on his contract, but he's basically a younger, half-price Okposo (has nine points, used to kill penalties and be known for defense, can still score a few goals if he waits by the net).
Trades
BUF
  1. Vrána, Jakub
  2. Pánik, Richard
Additional Details:
Panik because Hall puts WSH over the cap, hence the initial suggestion being around Olofsson.
WSH
  1. Hall, Taylor ($4,000,000 retained)
  2. Peterka, John-Jason [Reserve List]
  3. Hutton, Carter
  4. 2021 2nd round pick (BUF)
Additional Details:
Hutton to balance Panik--WSH buries him in the minors and gets part of his cap hit this year, but stays below the upper limit.

Buffalo should take that and run. Vrana has a lot more value than that

I think there is a catch here. Vrana surely has the right to arbitration and in a year he will be able to become an UFA?

Eli (op) has been around the block a few times. Pretty sure he wanted peterka specifically. I dont think he would swap mittelstadt or thompson here, but ive been wrong before. Peterka was considered a steal when he fell out of the first round, then he followed that up with a solid world juniors.

Having Tage Thompson as the 2nd line center immediately discredited the rest of the AGM ngl. Vrana has more value anyways
