  1. so I guess it becomes a question of how well Nylander will do playing with kane and/or Toews? If he can't product playing with them and getting lots of PP time (which I am sure he will) then we can for sure say he was a dud...
  2. yes...good player and great guy-probably get him for 1M
  3. Just looking and see there are still some fairly interesting names left out there in UFA...I am sure these guys could be had on a very reasonable contract. 1) Brian Boyle had 18 goals, 24 assist 42 points at 2.55M 2) Derick Brassard had 14 goals 24 assist at 5M 3) Nick Cousins had 7 goals 27 assist at 1M and is only 26 Do any of these guys seem to fill either the 2nd or 3rd center spot? Boyle is quite good at faceoffs, which is something this team desperately needs after giving away one of the best. he is also big and plays big which is nice against the physical east. Here is what is left of free agency...
  4. really? okay that is a good start back on D...we for sure have lots of 3-4 and 5-6 guys...we so need another center though
  5. we do have lots of wingers, and 3-4 d-men. only Dahlin seems to be a 1-2 guy and most of our wingers are 3rd or 4th liners
  6. agreed our 1st round picks do seem to suck but other teams rebuild through the draft and four 1st rounders is, or at least seems to be a lot of picks for one very good player
  7. agreed ...not goos enough if you want to compete every night. we need a real 2nd line center that is essential
  8. with all the lunacy we see every July 1st in free agency it is somewhat surprising some idiot hasn;t done it yet. of course you have to not only give away 4 picks but probably 12 million per and most teams can't do that...so many are already in cap-hell and it is to stay down next year too apparently
  9. Really? 4 -1st round picks...that's crazy. Marner is real good but you are totally giving up your future for one player. I just can't seem to get to that place and think: "yeah he's worth the next 4 -1st round picks and our future for the foreseeable future
  10. so unless a miracle happens and we get someone real good in a trade, we are what we are and have to hope like hell Ralph can perform miracles on ice...otherwise let's get ready for another long season, and NO playoffs
  11. I do think that a decent coach just may make a BIG difference with the Sabres...as soon as Babs went to the leafs they immediately improved
  12. The leafs sure are throwing money around yet still have not signed Mitch...what the heck are they doing? Trying to piss him right off???
  13. actually apparently Carolina are pissed cause they wanted to give Aho 6 or 7 years...now he hits free agency first year contract expires. Has anybody looked at what's left in UFA's? Not too much...obviously if we are to get anybody to fill 2nd center it'll have to be via trade. Do find it strange that hockey has gone the way of life in the real world...no more middle-class. Just th ehave's and the have not's. You have the big contract guys and then the guys barely making scale. Strange but there really isn't much in the way of 4 to 7 million guys much anymore
  14. Crazy what the NHL has become...it is no longer a matter of trading to improve your team rather it is giving away players just to reduce cap space. It is absurd the NHL allows pathetic trades such as Marleau and a 1st round pick for a bag of hockey pucks. PK gets a little more but not by much. I agree lets not hurry to give Risto away for basically nothing as we did with OReilly. personally I just think they use him far too much and put him under a role he may not be suited to be in, mainly a number one big minute d-man
  15. Detroit obviously played for draft position...they should have just forfeited and saved the sabres airfare to detroit. As for Skinner looking down I am sure he'll be allsmiles come July 01 when he signs a crazy contract with a winner...
