Even with that, I still pass on the trade.
Boqvist will be 24 at the start of next season and Buffalo currently has 5 decent options at center and with Pavel would have 6, I do not see any a spot for him in the Sabres line up.
Buffalo has 8 second line forwards with only Skinner and Thompson as possible top liners.
For this reason I could see Buffalo making a two for one trade where Buffalo is trading two players, I cannot see them taking two players for one that would dilute their top level talent.
Trying to play through an injury over the first 38 games he had 5 goals, 16 assists, 21 pts and was -17.
After his wrist healed, over his final 34 games he had 15 goals, 13 assists, 28 pts and was +1.
IMO, his production next year will be more similar to his last 34 games.
While he may be traded, it is unlikely it will be for two forwards, more likely a RHD if Buffalo were to add an asset.
I think he will be a Sabre next year.
