From Paul Hamilton of WGR550:
If the Sabres want Ryan Getzlaf, they will have to fork over Tyler Myers.
“Here’s the asking price as of now, it’s Tyler Myers. If Darcy parts with his prized defenseman Getzlaf can be in a Sabres uniform by tomorrow against the Leafs. The Ducks are saying we’ll give you our best player if you give us yours. Now you decide if that’s a trade you’d make.”
Getzlaf is arguably one of the top 5 centers in the NHL. Myers has the potential to become one of the top 5 defensemen in the NHL, in the future.
With the emergence of Brayden McNabb, and the plethora of defensive prospects in the Sabres feeder systems, this might be a feasible trade. Getzlaf is only 26, and already has a Stanley Cup and Olympic Gold Medal on his resume, and plays a position that Buffalo desperately needs help in. A position highly coveted by other NHL teams. Myers is still struggling to find his game.
“There’s one problem with trying to move Derek Roy, nobody, yes you read that right, nobody in the NHL wants him right now.
Problem number two, nobody in the NHL wants Drew Stafford right now.”
