I think BUF would consider that.

LA would definitely not do that deal. Can get much better package elsewhere.

This is why people hate pens fans...

Why would BUF a team 1 mil over cap trade to take on an additional 2mil in cap, and for the return of a top 6 winger when they desperately need a 2nd line center?

Also if LA are tanking again this year and going into a rebuild they'll flip Toffrolli at the deadline with cap retained for a king's ransom probably a 1st and a prospect any contender would kill for a winger like him on 2.3 mil cap hit.

Could prolly get similar production out of tage at a fraction of the cost

Possible, but I don't necessarily believe that Hornqvist will completely drop off like a lot of people do and Thompson hasn't shown a whole lot at the NHL level yet so I would be surprised if he's able to match the production. I still think it's a stretch for Buffalo to take on that long term salary given the RFAs they need to re-sign in a few years though.

Essentially going to get another okposo. Hornqvist is a solid player for the pens but the dude can't play a full season and his production keeps going down.

Yeah I could certainly see the hesitation. I'm just of the opinion that he's not completely on the decline. Buffalo probably isn't the team to take him on though given that they have Okposo already though. I'm just not ready to write him off. His production went up from 16-17 to 17-18 before take a bigger hit this year, so I wouldn't yet say his production "keeps going down", but there's concerns for sure.
