Doubt we'll do better than a 3rd round pick for Jaro.

That's fine by me.

Snow should be fired!

Let's not be hasty, we have a 1st round pick, the value of which is very much dependent upon Snow remaining in place and incompetent.

Goalie Michal Neuvirth is heading back to the Sabres in the Jaroslav Halak deal.


Alex Seixeiro @alexfan590

Looks like Michael Neuvirth and a 6th rounder to BUF for Halak. #TradeTracker

I'm fine with that.  Halak wasn't worth ###### in this stupid goalie market.  Now we have another year to decide between Enroth and Neuvirth.  Good stall move.

That gives us 2 young netminders with upside, at the very least.  Not a bad way to start goalie purgatory.

Neuvirth is a $2.5M cap hit and is a UFA after 2014-2015. Gives us a backup/starter and gives you a chance to flip him again next year.

FWIW, Neuvirth's contract runs through next season.  He'll make $2.6MM.

Yeah, the Sabre's goalie situation could be a lot worse going forward.

Good trade.  Nuevirth has another year on his deal and him and Enroth can split duties for next year. Big fan of this

Let the splitting starts begin. 50/50 yo.
