I know we're thin at goal but i am not sure why everyone is so concerned about losing Ullmark? Look at the list they have to pick from, they are likely to select 4-5 goalies and unless Ullmark is the second best one of the bunch, they will send him to the AHL, and thus needing to pass waivers where Buffalo would quickly ###### him up.

 

Of course, they could trade everyone of their goalies they draft besides MAF and Ullmark or another team can claim Ullmark but i'd think unlikely.


I cant believe that word is censored on here wtf... lol time to go to bed. Pretty sure thats the first time one of my posts on here has been censored. Crazy, never wouldve thought it would be on a post like this..

My sources haven't been very on lately (Zito and Madden) but I keep hearing the name Anisimov for what it's worth.

@PierreVLeBrun
Sabres, by the way, were also in on Mueller with SJ on Saturday before trading for Beaulieu. Devils end up with Mueller. Time will tell...

Hopefully he Anisimov's to another team


I have no real reason to dislike him other than he's a soft euro but that is the direction the league is going. Sigh...

He is a productive, big center, capable of filling in on a second line with a cap friendly contract......who may be a soft euro

The league is going toward soft euros? I wish.

I wonder..... that would put Jack and ROR together on the #1 line?

Didn't read what you guys were talking about, but after Jack's rookie year they should of always been on the same line together. IMO, RoR is meant to be Jack's winger, along with Okposo or one of the young kids. Leaving Reinhart as 2c, Kane as his LW, and one of Okposo or the young kids to round out the second line.

Since the Nylander pick, I've been hoping to one day see:

 

O'Reilly Eichel Nylander

Kane Reinhart  Okposo

 

But I don't think I ever will

Wow.  Can you imagine?  That top line could end up being one of the best lines in the league.

Power play maybe.

I still can't fathom why people want one of the better face off centers in the league (ROR) on the wing. It doesn't appear to be the best use of an asset.

I don't think that precludes ROR from taking face-offs. They just want Jack at center for the rest of the shift.

I think you are going to need to upgrade Reinhart-as-center for us to see it, hence my reaction to the Anismov rumor.

Are we debating if Anisimov is better than Reinhart?
