A Potentially Absurd Idea (trade with Buffalo)

Created by: Viqsi
Initial Creation Date: Jun 23, 2017

Team: 2017-18 Columbus Blue Jackets
Team Explanation
Just a thought that came to mind. Buffalo has some need for a good LHD other than McCabe, and they've already got Eichel and O'Reilly, so maybe this could be of interest.

Gorges is taken back both as a cap management incentive and to serve as a blueline "teacher/mentor" type.

Good thoughts here, but I'm not sure if Reinhart is a true center... from what I've heard from sabres fans he's more suited as a winger. If I'm CBJ I'm looking for a center or another elite winger. Overall some solid thoughts here tho

Given the risk associated with Murray's injury history, any C or C candidate we pick up for him is going to have similar "gosh, I dunno" type risk attached. Reinhart's worth taking that chance IMO.
