    As a Sabres fan, I think its more likely that the Canucks will acquire Antropov. You don’t want Timmy’s injury history and we can’t afford to lose him right now.

    Although a Pyatt-Connolly-Bernier line would be hilariously ironic. What would it be called? The Discarded Sabres line? haha

    Average teams really shouldn’t be trading drafts picks and prospects, and that’s what the Canucks are; an average team. Sure, the addition of either player will add a goal here and there, but is it worth gambling that we’ll get lucky in the playoffs when it means trading away our future? Because that’s what we’ll need to make a run. Like it or not, we need some luck.

    Plus, the belief that we may be helping the Leafs in any way makes my stomach hurt.

    @ Anne – What can I say? We like ex-Sabres and ex-Leafs apparently.

    @ CC – I don’t mind trading away a bit of the future for a better chance at a Cup run. That said, I don’t want to mortgage it either.

    If we could get either player for a Pat White and a 3rd round draft pick, I think it’s a worthwhile risk. But getting one for a Michael Grabner a 1st round draft pick is a whole other story.

    BTW… If they stay as healthy as they are now, I think the Canucks are an above-average team. They’re not Detroit or San Jose, but they’re at least on par with Dallas or even Chicago. They’re better than Minnesota or Columbus. I think it’s worth giving up a 3rd round pick for an appearance in the 2nd round of the playoffs (or further).
