    Take out Appleton and the Sabres have to add something of value, still wouldn't do it if I was Chevy.

    Im not saying this trade is great but untouchable cant be right, WPG is flooded with winger depth and really need to upgrade their Defense and 2C. Connor and Laine are much stronger players then Ehlers but Ehlers is more well rounded

    Do you think this trade could work one for one?

    No, I think because of Ehlers solid 2-way game and the deal he currently sits on, I think he holds more value.

    If Chevy I`d trade for Miller not Risto. If Buffalo wants to trade Risto then to Anaheim for Kase or better Rakell.

    But any team trading for Risto would also think he has a strong 2way game & also has a good contract

    Plus he’s a RH defenseman, which is the most valued position in the league, VS a winger, which is the least valued position

    And the Jets have to be desperate for a RH defenseman right now with losing Trouba, Myers & now it looks like Buff as well

    I could definitely see a Risto for Ehlers trade making sense for both teams

    Wait.... So you want WPG to trade their most valuable (including a fantastic contract) winger AND an NHL ready prospect when they don't have much depth for a number 4 d man.... No

    Serious question: are all Sabres fans this delusional?

    Wait why would sabres to this right now...? Ristos value is increasing as he plays because he's proving his defense skills.
