Garrioch says Foligno won't sign his RFA qualifying offer and the Sens will probably have to trade him. Clearly he would want to play in Buffalo, but I doubt there's any room for a 2nd/3rd LW right now, unless Vanek moves to RW or Leino moves to C. Even if any of you think Buffalo should try to acquire him, would it possibly be a better move to wait until he's a UFA and likely sign him for a discount?

Two Folignos are better than one. I say go for it.

We'll likely be required to send a little more for an inter-division trade, but I say do it.

It would be quite interesting to see two Folignos on the ice on the same line.

Do it. Two hardnosed Foligno boys on this team can only be a good thing. Talk about sibling rivalry. Those guys will drive each other more then they probably already do now. Then you are talking about some serious jersey sales. Think about it. Any sibling combo would want Foligno brother jerseys. I am already thinking about doing it for my brother and myself.

Potential isn't even the half of it. The guy seems destined for goalie super-stardom. I don't think there's a price that could get Lehner.

Why would he "clearly" want to play in Buffalo? :confusion-scratchheadyellow:

I'm guessing SFS1980 assumes he'd want to play here because his brother is playing here. And because his father played here for a decade.

Yeah, and I'm not even necessarily trying to say that Buffalo would be his 1st choice. But it seems obvious that Buffalo would be on his short list. Same as Jordan playing with Eric in Carolina.

The sabres have the better Foligno. I would stay away from nick.

We definately have the the better Foligno. But there's no doubt in my mind we should pursue Nick. I doubt Ottawa trade him to us. But it's worth a try. The guy plays with a ton of grit and that's the top 2 areas where we lack pretty much anything that and regular scoring although once Ennis was healthy he made stafford earn some of his cash and probably will launch "our Foligno" to stardom.

I have no problem trading Roy with a draft pick or 2 for Foligno and rights to Konopka

To say that the Sabres have the better Foligno is a bit premature, I would say, but if that's the way it were to work out, that would be sort of ironic, seeing as Marcus was seen as nothing more than a grinder and Nick was supposed to be super-talented and a good scorer.
