Actually, I think it'd be pretty easy for them to do so - they're still in win-now mode and dumping one of their younger core players for a prospect and pick sets them back - unless they get a boatload of either that they then turn around in a pre-arranged trade with another team that takes those picks in exchange for an impact roster player at a lower cap hit than Cirelli.

I'd expect Cernak to become expendable first before the Lightning ever entertain dealing Sergachev.

Maybe - but only as currency IMO for a more proven veteran impact player. As talented as either prospect is, they're still 2-3 years away from being possible impact players in NHL and that timeline doesn't fit with the Tampa core's age group of Stamkos (who they'll re-sign), Hedman, Kucherov and Vasilevsky.

From the Sabres' side, I think that Adams would be willing to deal either if it meant he could add a player like Cirelli with cap certainty, in the age group of his core and with a skillset that complements a lot of what the Sabres already have. The problem is on the Tampa side though IMO - as noted, they can't afford to wait on Kulich or Savoie to make the NHL and develop to the level where they'd make impacts like what Cirelli does now.
