If he is traded, Anaheim looks like the ideal trading partner. They could use another top six, scoring winger and have defensive assets that Buffalo could use (Vatanen/Manson).
If traded to Vancouver, that would just set Vancouver's rebuild back, because they wouldn't be good enough to make the playoffs, but they'd probably be too good to land a draft pick inside the top 5. I don't know if they have assets Buffalo would want. Tanev is overpayment and would require more from Buffalo, Edler has said he won't waive his NTC, and there aren't anymore viable defensive assets for Buffalo.
LA makes more sense than Vancouver, but I think Anaheim has the better defensive assets (Vatanen/Manson > Muzzin/McNabb).
