The trade with a NYR and STL. Those are both awful for Buf

In the Ranger deal, they get three blue-chip top prospects that can play in NHL next year. And a pick. The Blues trade assumes Tarasenko is healthy and rebounds a bit this year.

In the NYR trade buf is giving up a phenom LD drafted 1 overall. And a top 6 wing. Who at bare minimum is a 20 goal scorer PP specialists. But so far this year a play driving wing who has been superb at 5v5.
That trade is awful.
Then you trade a bunch of prospects and highish picks for a 32 year old winger who has had major injury issues.
It makes no sense.

Ehh, he doesn't turn 30 until next month. You're off by two years there.

You really think Calgary is a bottom 15 team in the league after they just embarrassed the metro?

Blues decline that trade, especially if Tarasenko continues this play this year. No signs of shoulder trouble and is driving hard to the net. Spare parts won't get it done.

Probably shoulda fact checked that one.
But the 2 years doesn't change the conversation much. Not a good fit for Buf

Just a point of order, but I can't imagine he'd waive for Buffalo anyway.
