I understand now, thanks for clarifying. Not sure McCabe would want to return to Buffalo. I'm unsure about how the relationship between him and the organization ended when he left. We also need a RHD with term, which Murphy fits into. But I understand your points.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NotDougWilson</b></div><div>The 1st and 2nd round picks are what's important in this trade for Meier. Ostlund is going to be a decent top 6 player in the near future. He already has a relationship with Eklund as well. Portillo is kind of a funny case since we already have another Michigan goaltender with Strauss Mann. I guess the more the merrier :)

If I'm the sharks, I would accept.</div></div>

Thanks for the input man. The trade doesn't cost anything that hurts too much for the Sabres and their build, but the Sharks get some real quality pieces to help them along their path of rebuilding. Its a win-win as I see it.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Hawksguy81</b></div><div>I think if the pick in the Murphy trade was the Buffalo '23 instead of the '24, the Hawks would consider this. Really depends on what Davidson thinks of Poltapov as a prospect.

And that's a really strong offer for Meier. Sharks would have to take that I'd think</div></div>

Yes I think the trade value depends on how Poltapov is seen. When he was drafted there was hopes of a middle-6 goal scorer who plays with grit. Hard to gauge his development as a causal observer of his stats in the KHL. However, I would be willing to part with any similar wing prospect (Cederqvist, Kisakov etc.).

Thanks for your input!

Sorokin is unquestionably very good one of the best in the NHL.
I cannot remember who was the last GK that was traded for more than a first and a decent player much less a first and two promising young players.
Maybe Dominick Hasek spoiled me, but I remember him taking teams much less talented than the Islanders to the Cup Finals and he only returned the last first round pick and Kozlov, much less than this package.
Sorokin has a great save % but is only 15-15-4 which means he lost 19 of his 34 decisions. <strong>update 20 of his 35 decisions</strong>
Does any one think he will do as well with the Sabres with Bryson, Lyubushkin and Jokiharju playing in front of him?

Everyone seems to wants to jump start the team to the playoffs, patience seems to be working quite well and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen is 12-5-1 so far this year (let's wait for Levi maybe) seems to play well enough to win.

<strong>Do your best to convince me, but I quickly pass on this if that is the price.</strong>

Buffalo needs more consistency.
They lost 5 of their last 8 and suffered an 8 game losing streak in November.</div></div>

All I will say is that if we are going to use premium pieces to acquire anyone, I would only do it for an elite goaltender, which Sorokin is. He would propel us from being a fringe wild card team to being a playoff team. Having Sorokin and UPL split starts wouldn't hurt and Levi should be 3 or 4 years away from the NHL if we are wise with him.
