Devils lose 2 young players for no reason nice idea. DECLINE, they would rather look else where for a goalie. You literally got worse goalies on a Cup contending team YIKES

Not a single one of these trades makes sense. If I was Buffalo, I would take that, but Ottawa should be totally offended at this offer, and NJ probably does not want to go down this route

Honestly I only looked at the Devils trade until I saw this comment.

Age & Cap hit, plus we’d have to give up a mountain of young talent to get him- and that’s IF the AVs would even consider it

As good as he is, MacKinnon doesn’t make the Sabres a Cup Contender- we just aren’t ready for a move like that

Especially if we haven’t figured out our goaltending

Every team says no, including the Avs. Plain silly ideas.

Sabres should switch Mitts + 2nd for 1st, but accepts. Adding top 10 player in the league is the way to go.

This is actually one of the most "insulting" offers I have seen on CF for Ottawa

- Ben Meyers has zero value and I wouldn't claim him on waivers

- Sens have Korpisalo, Forsberg, Sogaard, Merilainen, Mandolese and Reidler. They don't need Annunen and would much rather have Sogaard.

- 31 y/o Ryan Johansen with 1 year left on his contract? Not particularly good at ES... don't see the appeal

I wouldn't trade Pinto for that package. I wouldn't trade Sogaard for that package and even for Brannstrom I have to think about it.

really nice of the Sens to give you their good players in exchange for your bad players

Just looking at the end result, goaltending is not good enough. Avs will want at least one veteran in the rotation.

Not to mention that MacKinnon doesn't waive to go to Buffalo to begin with.

Most likely correct
The whole thing jut seems quite implausible
