Dreger: Red Wings believed to be interested in Sabres' Tyler Myers
Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers continues to be the subject of trade rumors, and a familiar team is reportedly on his trail.
TSN's Darren Dreger reports that although the Sabres are saying otherwise, Myers' name has come up once again in discussions with the Detroit Red Wings and possibly the Anaheim Ducks.
"The Sabres are downplaying it, but reality sucks sometimes, and the reality for the Sabres is they're going to be real bad this year," Dreger said Thursday.
"Detroit (is) believed to be interested," he added. "(The Sabres) have had talks with the Red Wings about (a) trade, and perhaps Anaheim as well."
Myers was shopped over the summer, and while the Red Wings were interested in acquiring a defenseman, they could not work out a deal with Buffalo at the time.
The Sabres' asking price was reportedly three players and a first-round draft pick.
TSN's Bob McKenzie added that several teams are interested in the Sabres' pending unrestricted free agents, which include Chris Stewart and Drew Stafford.
