We are far to loaded on the LW... Murray is going to make another move.

Buffalo overpaid..  But let's see how it works out.  All of a sudden, Buffalo is strong down the middle.  Does Reinhart even crack the lineup this year?

cant see it. He might even be on the block.

Have to think acquisition of O'Reilly gives Sabres more time to develop Reinhart. Top three centers will be O'Reilly, Eichel and Girgensons

The curse of the jersey.  I bought a Zadorov jersey last year.  Bought a Myers jersey before that one.

Can you buy a Hodgson jersey?

So we traded for ROR to put him on the wing? Can't see it.

But in that top 6 4 are centers, something has to give, or that is not the top six

Pysyk was ready all last year to be a regular in the NHL...Nolan was pretty frustrated about him being kept in the AHL...

 

Risto, Pysyk, Bogo, Gorges, Ruhwedel and Weber as a top 6?  I can live with that...if they could add another D as part of a 2nd pairing even better...

 

McCabe possibly ready to make the jump as well?

it's not that big of a deal. ROR can play wing. Rienhart could play wing. Girgensons can play wing. 

 

but you could always put Moulson or Foligno there and move Reinhart to third line. Or when all is said and done Girgensons could be the third line.

Yikes. We actually got him! Paid a fair amount. Kind of sad to see Grigorenko go - I feel he was never truly given a fair chance. I think this will be a trade that is good for both teams. I also expect ROR on the wing

May be the biggest single day in franchise history since the spin of the wheel. 

Was thinking the exact same thing. 

 

WOW! 

 

I remove the demerit I gave him earlier for the Lehner deal because I was sure 21 was gonna be part of the O'Reilly deal, anyway. 

 

GO SABRES!!!

crap, Big Z should have been enough, don't like the trade. Murray imo getting schooled. Sabres will be better, but won't have enough depth to go anywhere long term.

Ruwedel is more of a 7.  Pysyk slides into the top 4.  Still need a better top 6 player at the least.

THRILLED with this trade, by far the best of Murray's time as GM.

 

The Sabres are going to be really exciting to watch next year.  Just need Pysyk to step up and McCabe to stay healthy.

If he can score, numbers were not there last year, injured or couldn't break the line-up

Maybe not specifically with just this trade but I do fear there is not a plan beyond say 4 years from now.  In 8 years I can see Eichel being traded to start the whole process again since the future depth has been stripped clean.

Don't we need to resign him after this year? Does he want to be here? Are you comfortable trading Zadorov, Grigorenko, and Compher if ROR doesn't resign?

The Buffalo mentality hit already?

Our cupboard is hardly bare, and there is always FA and trading of more supporting team members
