You guys got what you wanted. I hope he's as advertised.

I am oddly calm about this.  I hope he is as advertised.

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

If we chip in will you buy a Hodgson jersey?  :rolleyes:

The scroll on nbcsn stated Sabres team needs: starting goalie and depth at center. Not anymore.

Either the beer or O'Reilly trade. Probably a combo of both!

We have a whole team of centers now, so I have to think the plan is for one of them to slide over to Right Wing (maybe Gus?).

Well, you have time to prepare. His relative price tag is pretty clear.

He is a LW, had a decent 2013-2014 season scoring 19 goals...also scored 20 goals between the Sharks/Avalanche in 2011-2012...

 

Was hurt in 2012-2013 for half the season but got 11 goals...only played in 19 games last year...

 

Looks like he can be a 15-20 goal scorer if he stays healhty...

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?

4th liner but he did score 19 goals, 19 assists 2 years ago.  Had back surgery last year but was still on pace for mid teen amount of goals before that.

Maybe not, if Grigorenko wasn't going to sign a 2-way deal and the Sabres weren't going to give him a 1-way deal and he would have just signed in the KHL...

 

Either way we got an established really good player that is backed up with really good advanced metrics for we don't really know what.

 

But like Time Murray says, you can only have 50 players under contract, and we have a lot of ammunition for trades, so using up a little extra to get a player you want isn't going to hurt that much...

Scouting report on McGinn:

 

 

Assets: Can play a sound defensive game and also displays streaky goal-scoring ability. Works very hard when on the ice and is also quite versatile up front.

 

Flaws: Doesn't have great playmaking skills. Must display greater consistency in all areas of the game in order to maximize his National Hockey League output.

 

Career Potential: Industrious and streaky winger with a little upside.

 

 

Sounds like a good 3rd liner
