I like this move.  This is the start of interjecting young talent into the lineup.  Hopefully this will be the start of a few draft picks finally contributing. 

 

Zack Redmond called up too.  Sometimes a change or two can make an impact.  Possibly JBot and Housley see this as a "feeling out" type of year.

They'd rather have him learning on the Amerks than stuck on a ###### juniors team. That seems like a good move.

(As long as he can hang in the A)

Sabres sign Cliff Pu to entry-level contract. It kicks in when he turns pro, which is expected to be next season.

 

 

 

 

So does that mean he's not coming to rochester OR buffalo this year?

I would assume they're worried about getting him up here for 9 games on an emergency call up?

That, or Botterill & the agent reached an agreement on what he was worth & the Sabres want him concentrating on "developing" rather than "earning" closer to a max entry level deal.

It does seem that Botterill is more efficient than his predecessor when it comes to contract negotiations.

Pu will hit the A next season.  

 

Who knows if this is a good signing for not.  He is talented and considering the lack of talent in Rochester that was drafted by the Sabres, every warm body will be welcome.  Now we have to hope he develops better then the last 3rd rd pick with promise (Baptiste).

 

As a pt of reference Nick had 45g and 44 assists in his 3rd Jr season.

Pu had 35g and 51a in his 3rd jr season.

Yup. It seems like just a regular signing of a junior player they feel looks promising, who they had the rights to until next June. Drafted junior players often get signed mid season.

This was pretty well a done deal once Housley gushed over him in Training Camp

Really like this kid, seen him play 4 or 5 times plus numerous times on tv.

He will eventually bring speed, smarts and offensive ability to the bottom 2 lines of the Sabres

I won't rule out a jump to NHL next year. 3 full years in London may be all the development a player needs.

Hopefully a spot on the cdn WJC team will be on the horizon as well

Can we expect some roster movement?

(How many horrible puns do you think we can plop into this thread? And how long until someone complains?)

I had a few dates in High School with a girl with the last name Pu.

 

Boy, that was fun.

He'll have a chance next year. I think after this season he's AHL eligible. This is the year to sign him. I'd expect him to go Rochester for at least 1 full season.

I dunno. Maybe. Hope so. Who can say.  He's stinking the joint up in London this year but who knows.

I'm glad he's signed on.  He's shown some real promise so hopefully he will develop into that solid middle 6 player.

Well, she was a cutie and, contrary to stories of the day, she always smelled lovely.

 

I knew it was going nowhere when, on our second date, she gleefully informed me of her boyfriend.

if London's season ends before thew Amerks then Pu would no doubt play the remaining games with the A's this season then play next year with them for sure
