I love to have Jack on Wings roster, but Wings in no position to trade all that right now.

I am not saying it is not a good trade, only if Wings were in better shape.

Monahan has more value than Reinhart so that doesnt make any sense

Do you believe ownership would sign off on blowing it all up again?

Its a great deal with Jets, if they would agree to that.

Sabres could get more with Eichel trade, particularly if LAK and NYR get involved.
At the least, they could ask Detroit for their own 2021 1st pick.

Fabian Lysell won't fall out of 1st round. Probably won't make it past top-20.

Also imagine how pissed he would be to finally get out of Buffalo just to go to Detroit

I have him going top 5 right now, I would be suprised if he falls out of the top 10

Hasn’t someone ever told you never to go full ****? Everyone’s entitled to a bad idea but you’re just pushing it. Giving away Bryson is the icing on the **** cake here.

Take out Samberg and the 2nd and the Jets probably look at it. I could see the Jets having interest, but Samberg won't be moved.

Way too much for Ristolainen, Jets easily decline.

Well yes Wings bad but at least we have a ton of cap, really only two bad contracts, a lot of prospects in the pipeline and a real GM.
