AHL fourth liner for us last year, kinda sad what we lost in that McNabb trade.

No room for him on the big club anyways, better than losing him on waivers for nothing.

Fasching was really hyped up as a prospect.    He scored in his first game, and then was mostly downhill from there.    He had a solid background, was hyped up as a solid character guy, hardworking, etc.... and yet here we are.   

 

You just never know with kids that age I guess.

The #Sabres also acquired Mike Sislo in the deal, who scored 47 points in 68 games with the Tucson Roadrunners [AHL] this season @WKBW

He'd have been better had he forgone the NCAA for the Swiss league.

So the Sabres are specifically targeting two types of players...

 

Swedish

or

former BU Terriers

 

...now if there was just a swedish former BU Terrier.... JBOTs head would explode.

I really liked Hudson as a prospect, mostly the way he worked the boards.
I envisioned him growing into a heavy LA style 15/15 guy.
But that was in another GMs system and the way he finished the year made this inevitable.
Hope he can find a niche elsewhere, seemed like a great kid.

Kulikov, Gionta, Deslauriers, Moulson, Kane, Gorges, Fasching, soon-to-be-be Lehner and O’Reilly?
Tim Murray’s Sabres quickly becoming a memory.

Seems like a fair deal, for both teams.

Nice that Fasching also garnered a top-6 AHL asset. Go, Roch!

Brandon Hickey's agent, Kevin Epp, told @AZSports back in March that he didn't expect to sign with the Coyotes. He wanted a chance at a bigger role than he thought was available in Arizona.

Hickey was a Flames 3rd rounder, traded to the Coyotes almost exactly one year ago for Mike Smith.
Was good enough to play for team Canada in the 2016 WJC.

So, similar project to Fasching. The Greeley connection might mean they think they can sign him.


Sislo might be in the plans for Rochester, but I’d say he’s more likely just a contract Arizona demanded we take to match the one they were taking on. A 30-year-old minor league journeyman middle-sixer.

To be fair, the Kings don't have anything left from the trade. One of the 2nd round picks is still buried in the AHL, the other isn't even with the organization any more. And Jonathan Parker has played for 7 different teams in the ECHL. in 3 years. In fact he's retired.

I like that he took a flyer on two possible UFA's, but this also might just become another Vessey trade :P

They do have whoever Vegas would have taken instead of McNabb. So there is that.

I am one with that assessment, that assessment is with me. Good luck, Fasching!

Yes. Uninteresting trade in hindsight. I guess we were able to tank better with D-Lo than with McNabb? That's... something.

At the time I didn't mind the McNabb trade, well I thought 2 2nd round picks seemed a bit much.

But I thought Deslauriers and Fasching both would become bottom 6 guys and we had McCabe who seemed better to me.

Good stuff here boys.  I'd also point out that GMTM gave away, for it turns out almost nothing in return, a guy who easily would've played 3 years as a top-6 D for the Sabres and perhaps much more.

Now that is some fine Sabres message board wit right there.
