Later on tonight, the Buffalo Sabres will be announcing their decision on a huge trade with the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks have proposed a trade to the Sabres that will move Stanley Cup Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist Ryan Getzlaf, who is arguably the Ducks best player, for Buffalo’s young and extremely talented defense men, Tyler Myers. If this trade goes down it will be one of the biggest trades in NHL history. You don’t trade players like Getzlaf and Myers.
Personally, I think this deal would be slightly in favor of the Ducks. Even though Getzlaf is a very decorated All-Star and only 26 years of age, Defense men like Myers are the rarest players to find. He’s compared to players like Chara, Weber, and Pronger, who are all elite Defense men that set the pace of a game. Look at the history of Stanley Cup winners over the last 10 years and you will find every team had an elite defensive pairing. But the Buffalo Sabres feel like they need an elite center like Getzlaf to compete in the East. More to come with the results later tonight!!!!
