If the Sabres are still struggling with injuries come March and are mired towards the bottom of the standings I'll have no issue whatsoever with a mini tank. Right now it's too early.
And who could we trade to qualify it as a mini-tank? Kane?
It's not tanking to sell off Kulikov, Franson and Gionta at the deadline.
That's just good asset management.
Semi-related: I fully expect Murray to call Gionta into his office a few weeks before the deadline, and ask him if he wants to play out the string here or be traded to a Cup contender. Then I expect Murray to do exactly what Gio wants.
