Correct me if Im wrong cause im not great with sabres prospects but that feels like not enough for an extended meier. New Jersey seems like they would beat that.

Sabres have the best prospect pool in nhl. You will not be getting any of devils top prospects. Also devils and Sabres 1st round pick will be about 10 spot difference.

Rather just keep Olofsson and his 40 goals pace. Mittlestadt is already a failed center and hasn't played there in months

Dont think Ostlund is quite good enough, but you should have 3-4 other options that are. The other two are worth nil to us

Frankly, it might not be enough
Probably depends on if there’s a bidding war for him or not
The Sabres do have the pieces to win it though, should one occur
Idk that we’d do it though
My guess is that we’d bow out before we’d overpay,
but Meier could be a really nice fit for us

Ostlund was a mid-1st round pick last year
And he’s a Center
I’m sure he’s a valuable piece that most teams would like

Franchise that is paying Vlasic and Couture 15mil a year, can't have enough of ELC prospects.
