<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>KakkoForMauriceRichardAward</b></div><div>BUF says thx a lot and runs away with the steal</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DiehardRedWingsFan58</b></div><div>Pretty sure that Pilut has signed a 2 year deal to play in the KHL.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Sagecoll</b></div><div>I'd say it's Hanifin's contract length that makes this stealish. In terms of short-term on-ice value. Hanifin and Miller aren't very far apart. Hanifin brings more offense, Miller brings more defense. I think the bigger issue is that the Sabres prospect pool is so trash that there's really no one they can send in this deal (because of the massive gap between Cozens and the next guy) that would make this work. So they'd have to send like a 2nd.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>dzmets</b></div><div>I think that Buffalontakes that trade but it is by no means a steal. Hanafin is a very similar player to Miller. He tends to get overrated because of where he was drafted. He had a very good year in 18-19, but the rest of his career he has been a below average 2nd pair defenseman without alot of physical abilities but not very good underlying numbers</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>littlejerryseinfeld</b></div><div>It is believed he has an nhl out clause</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Ledge_And_Dairy</b></div><div>Flames decline</div></div>

I think Miller and Hanifin are close, but Hanifin gets the nod.
Buffalo and Calgary makes the trade to balance LHD and RHD.
If Pilut opt out of the KHL contract, this is actually a huge win for Calgary.
While Pilut was not given the chance to display his offensive talents in Buffalo, he won the Salming award and was an AHL All Star.
But good discussion thanks for your input, maybe both teams would say no.
Buffalo may want to trade Miller for a center.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Leafs_and_Sens_Fan</b></div><div>Now this offer is gonna start to get you somewhere. Nice job.

Buffalo probably wants to give a RHD back in that deal (Risto or Montour). Maybe take out a 2nd, throw Kase in and have Montour coming back.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Silkysmooth42</b></div><div>Wow bruins laugh at this offer

Yes lets give up OUR ENTIRE FUTURE for one franchise player.

Eichel is a BEAST, but he is not worth giving up on a cup winning team and killing the future of the franchize</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Timmah007</b></div><div>Carlo instead of Mcavoy in my opinion.
But very good deal for buffalo in my opinion.</div></div>

Eric Lindros was traded for this:
Chris Simon, Mike Ricci, Kerry Huffman, Ron Hextall, Peter Forsberg, Steve Duchesne, future considerations, round 1 pick in the 1993 draft, round 1 pick in the 1994 draft

IMO Jack is at least as good as Eric, and the trade I proposed does not come close to the what the Flyers gave up for Eric.
So it is not at least the trade I proposed the team getting Eichel is stealing him:

Steve Duchesne for McAvoy, Charlie
Mike Ricci for DeBrusk, Jake
Peter Forsberg for Studnicka, Jack
round 1 pick in the 1993 draft, for 2021 1st round pick (BOS)
round 1 pick in the 1994 draft for 2022 1st round pick (BOS)
Chris Simon for 2020 2nd round pick (BOS)
Kerry Huffman for 2021 2nd round pick (BOS)
There may be some inequities but on the balance it is a fair comparison.
Anything less than this will not get you Eichel.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jack_</b></div><div>yea you right. giving up kapanen who is a good 3rd line right wing for a player who will split time on the 4th line on the AHL team. Thompson isnt better then bracco, he isnt better then petan, he isnt better then korshkov but hes probably better then wilson. they have wilson in the lineup to help the younger players with their development so he will still play games. I guess giving up a good middle six forward for a 4th line ahler who has a small chance at making the leafs next year is a great idea. asset management 101. :squinty</div></div>

This is an unfortunate food fight that I started, for that I apologize.
I can see how my reply could be misunderstood that I thought this was a good trade for the Leafs. That was not my intention. If you read my comment, it was not directed to the value of the trade but rather to your comment about Thompson that he would not be a full time Marlie. I thought that was just a bit hyperbolic and over reacted.
I really like Kapanen and would love to see him in a Sabre, but IMO this trade does not work for either team. Sheary does not PK and even though his goals may be close to Kapanen, his value to the team is not the same. While I think Thompson will develop into a good mid six forward, he is at least a year away and does not help the Leafs this year.
The Sabres pass because even though Kapanen can PK, they have players who fill that role.
Again, I should have been more specific when I responded to your initial post. Both teams would pass on this trade for different reasons.
