<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Skyraider112</b></div><div>Ya not interested in moving Mittelstadt but let's just say his value to make it worth moving him would have to be for a top 4 RHD in the 22-30 age range with term. Otherwise it doesn't make sense</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Tjm220</b></div><div>That would be Brock Faber. Minnesota fans don’t seem to like this idea. They would rather try to pawn two pending UFAs, a second round pick, and another prospect the Sabres don’t really need in return for a young productive center with team control. Yeah, I’d like it if my team could make a trade like that too.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>AntiAnalytics</b></div><div>Sabres aren’t trading Mitts
And a bunch of pieces we’d have ABSOLUTELY zero interest in isn’t gonna change our minds

You guys would have to do WAY better
Like, Brock Faber value better
And yes, i do realize that’s a lot- but like i said, we aren’t looking to trade Mitts. That rumor was made up BS that’s been shot down already by legitimate sources</div></div>

Let's see, a 22 year old rookie top pairing defender with #1RD potential. Who is already both elite defensively and showing solid Norris potential.

OR

A 25 year old center making Bank points off a 3rd line role. (An exaggeration, but making a point)

You're out of your damn minds if you think Mitts is worth anywhere close to that kind of player. Guess that means we can get Dahlin for Eriksson-Ek too, right?

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Digitalbooya06</b></div><div>Ah yes, because in 2 years a 32 year old Brodin will totally be the reason Kaprizov leaves or doesn't leave as compared to a player like Dickinson or Levshunov or Silayev or Demidov or Eiserman or Lindstrom or whoever they pick with the top 10 pick.

We could also get into the part where Brodin is injury prone and sucks in the playoffs.


There is someone thinking short sighted here, but it's not who you think it is.</div></div>

Probably, yes.

I hate to break it to you, but players don't give a flying f*** about players they may or may not see on roster for another 3+ years. Kaprizov texts with Yurov, sure. But if Yurov isn't on roster by the time his contracts up, do you honestly think that would get him to stick around?

Hell no.

None of those players listed are better than Brodin is now in the next two years time, let alone this or next year. In fact, the chances that they get anywhere NEAR as good as him, EVER. Are less than 10%.

Such is the risk of drafting. Just because someone is selected in the top 10 doesn't make them an automatic future all-star. Remind me how Yakapov is doing? Or Lafreniere? Kakko? These names ringing any bells?

All Kaprizov see's is management moving out players that help the team to win now for lesser players in need of new contracts that will cost more than what was shipped out in the long run.

I'd bolt for greener pastures too.

I'm saying that we already have a chance at all those players that you think are sure things with are own draft pick this year. There's no need to move a player that's already better and is more likely to still be better than them in two years time.

That's it.

So we don't get to pick twice in the top-ten. Boo hoo.

And yes making this trade is short sighted.

Again, YOU'RE MOVING SIX MILLION FOR A FUTURE COMBINED CAP HIT OF NINE TO THIRTEEN MILLION.

Just so you can snag a single top ten pick.

1) Who do you replace Brodin with?

Chisholm?
Merrill?
Goligoski?
Hunt?

2) How are you paying either Faber or Rossi when their ELC are up after next season?

Remember, you just gave the money that would of gone to them to both Jokiharju and Mittelstadt.

3) If you don't want to keep them and move them for further assets later on, you still need to replace said players in the lineup.

Again, who's filling the three roster spots you just vacated for one top ten pick. There's 17 roster spots open, who you got?
