I understnad some changes are needed but you dont need to blow up the team. The teams needs a veteran #1 center. That is a higher priority right now over a RW. I could see tradding Stafford, Leopold, Sekera, Adam, and Miller. In the right trade I could see trading Vanek or Pommenville but not giving them away for prospects. I could also see them trading Myers. the team has alot of young depth at Defense. I could see Sekera/Leopold and Adam for Stasny or Miller, Sekera/Leopold, and one of their 1st round C for Hiller and Getzlaff. Pf Pommenville or Vanek to trade...Pommenville (or Stafford) is the more likely one to trade for a Center---why--Vanek shots Right and could play on RW..Ennnis currently playing C can play LW--so you would still have balance. With Leopold and Sekera in salry=Myers in salary starting this year Myers could easily be moved given McNabb emergence last year and they have about 4 other D-men ready to come into the NHL or by next year or 2 In termds of depth Myers is more expandable. TheSabres dont have much depth on the LW which is why they would be more inclinded to keep Vanek. With Pmmenville/Stafford you have last yrs first rounder Armia as a RW who would take their place next year. As it stands now in the depth cahrt for lines you have ....Vanek/Adam(could also be one of their 1st round C or a trade for one)//Pommenville, Stafford/Ennis/Foligno, Leino/Hodgson/RW (Doan/Kostitsin), 4th line would be Ott/#1 draft C/someone else on the roster
