    Default If you could trade Byfield for Owen Power, would you do it?

    At this point, I'd make that trade, even though I like QB.

    I just think we need a guy like OP more.
    Heck, I'd even add Moverare to sweeten the deal.

    Whereas I think QB will be a very good NHLer, I am not so sure he's superstar material at this point.

    Not saying Buffalo would even make this trade, but if they would, I'm in.

    Our D would be set.

    Buffalo says no really fast. I think QB could still be great but most guys who end up being really elite have shown more in the two years after their draft.

    I love these takes. What with the Covid bubble year 1 and the serious injury in year 2. What the hell is wrong with this kid? And does he even know how to cook a steak yet or is he still calling his mom?

    You’re right he’s had a couple bad breaks, but even things that aren’t you’re fault can knock you off a star trajectory.

    Guys who score like he has only turn into stars 28% of the time.

    True but we knew he was more of a project, despite his draft position, when we took him. Also, as others have called out, those stats are based on typical seasons which the covid era was anything but.

    Personally I'm not at all worried about Byfield and think he will do just fine once he has a full season under his belt. Look how much Durzi grew in a year, or even Kupari with more NHL games. Not to mention Spence, Fagemo and Grans at the AHL level last season. By the end of the season they all looked like completely different players.

    Agreed. Also looking forward to seeing Byfield with some real NHL wingers.

    This is going to be key. The "kid" line last year was fun and looked good at times but QB needs some serious wingers. I don't know if AK + AI is enough. I think there is a still a potential deal out there for another winger to specifically play with QB, he needs it.

    And NO WAY Buffalo is trading Power for QB. Dahlin? Maybe...and I would do that deal as well, in a heartbeat.
