Correct. The return was for a few months of a top six winger. Not Evander for life.

 I got nothing.

 

At least we have a player with an Irish sounding name for Saint Paddys day !

Only Buffalo fans can justify trading a top player for nothing in return

There have been a few over the years. Dom comes to mind. The return for him sucked as well. Ray Sheppard had potential when we gave him away but he prolly couldn't have been considered a can't miss at that point.

I can't justify it.

 

It would be worth the 2019 second-round pick to tell the rest of the league "###### off, we won't be had."

Kulikov re-injured his back...same injury as when with the Sabres.

Out at least 8 weeks with back surgery. 

I'd say we see him next fall in TC.

 

Trouba came back last game and Scheifele and Lowry about to come back and Enstrom probably playing Sunday. We are starting to get healthy just in time. It would be nice if one of the backup goalies came back soon.

Not If he didn't want to

don't think we even asked him. kane said they never made him an offer. Who needs a 30 goal, 26 year old power forward just hitting his prime years?

If you love something, set it free....

I liked Evander but I don't think he's worth the money he will get.
His lack of hockey sense was frustrating to watch.

skating hard, hitting D on the forecheck and scoring goals......that hockey sense? 5 goals and 10 points in 9 games with Sharks

Welcome to the board, although you have been around for some time, so welcome to your first post.

 

I like it, eh.  Yup.  The Sabres traded away they exact type of player they need.  Oh, well there is a chance that the draft pick, whenever it ends up being, develops into another Evander Kane type player, in about 8 years.

I've had friends and relatives go through this and have witnessed only the external impacts on a couple.  I didn't like that and of course the internal impacts are so much greater. 

 

This is one of the more horrible things in life that I wished never happened, to anyone, ever.

That's horrible. Miscarriages are hard enough to deal with. But to go through all 9 months for that result is tragic.

Hopefully the Otters let him take some time to be with his wife.

Bettman defending the coaches challenge like the slimebag he is

 

1) Only 1/2 dozen goaltending interference calls have been controversial (not sure what time frame he mentioned here)

2) Skate blades in the air are dangerous for player safety; keep them on the ice for the onside review, follow the rules

 

Yes, that 2nd one actually happened

This is horrible news and has to be one of the hardest things to go through for any couple.

 

Good friends of our had this happen a long time ago.  What made that worse was the fact that it was the result of doctor error.

I can't speak for all med professionals, but when I mess up (and it does happen) I find it hard to sleep at night.

This is terrible, hopefully they can find solace and try again in the future with better results.

This always has been a big joke to me.

 

Anyone who remembers that team in the 80s / early 90s will remember that team resembling the present-day Sabres much more than the 70s Canadiens, and the fan base acted as such.

It's like the Butt Goal (and I know how much y'all like the butt goal) only stranger: 

 

 

Coyotes v Hurricanes. 

 

Puck gets stuck in goalie's skate trying to play it behind the net. Ends up inside the goal, good goal.
