If management believed Mittelstadt and Power could step up to be their #1 and #2 centers, they could consider this offer.
Two power forwards as Anderson and Tuch at RW would be interesting.
With Thompson, Skinner, Quinn, Okposo and Krebs scoreless after five games, the Sabres are still 4-1 and took down both the Oilers and Flames.
It may prove too destructive for the Sabres to move away from a player they just extended.
The Sabres would certainly pass on this offer even though it would give them five picks in the first two rounds this yea..</div></div>
Thompson's a very good player, sure, but we're talking about potentially 3 generational talents in this year's draft. He isn't worth that, especially with just 1 year of evidence behind him as a 30+ goal scorer. Buffalo would accept that without thinking twice, particularly if Montreal looks like a bottom-3 team.
