<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Cory</b></div><div>Do you think their is just no interests in him from Buffalo or Buffalo just isn't willing to part with picks or prospects?

Here was my thought process and feel free to correct me on it.

Demelo = UPL
Hellebuyck = Middelstadt (figure he will always be a 3rd liner) Ostlund (prospects potential unless named McDavid, Crosby, Matthews are always unknown) the 1st will be a high pick if they make a run in the playoffs.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>littlejerryseinfeld</b></div><div>He's still 30 and a pending UFA who wants a huge deal</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>masterjuddi</b></div><div>I think it's fair as long as there is an extension in place for Bucky that isnt north of 9. Casey has been a 3rd liner in BUF, UPL is still unproven and Noah has yet to make his NHL debut
Bucky's value is being undervalued terribly on this site. He's a 3 time vezina finals and one time winner. He's a top goalie still in his prime and should be valued as such.
Bucky makes Buf a playoff team, which is something sabers fans should be excited out. making this deal for him should be a no brainer. I still want him to stay in the Peg.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Cory</b></div><div>Me too. I would much rather keep him and give him his 9 mil a year than trade him. I just wouldn't go anything over 5 years.</div></div>

This is way to much for aging goalie who will want a huge deal. If they wait till deadline value will be much lower because at that point everyone will know if he is even willing to resign and if they dont trade him they will lose him for nothing. If you look at past huge goalie trades Ryan miller is an example. Miller who was the best goalie in the league at that time and signed 5 year deal was trade with steve Ott for goalie who wouldnt play for sabres (halak), Chris stewart (similar to OTT so wash), Carrier ( B prospect), late 1st and 3rd.

In the trade you proposed sabres getting another dman which they have 10 NHL dman on roster. For you cost controlled center who put up 60 points playing thrid line minutes and limited PP time. When thompson was hurt in the end of the year played on top line and averaged over PPG. Young starting goalie. One of the sabres top propsects (in one of the deepest forward pools) and a first.

The value is not even close. they would be lucky to get half of that. if you compare it to miller deal. It would be Rusek, first and third for Helly.
