  1. 1. Mario Lemieux- Was so dominate with size and skill. 2. Brett Hull- (St Louis days)- shot was so deadly 3. Theo Fluery- always loved his determination and feistiness for how small he was 4. Mike Richter- favorite American born goalie growing up 5. Al MacInnis- hard shot great passer
  2. I'd rather have Tuch and Anderson on my top 2 RW then what we would have to pay Reinhart!!
  3. I feel GMKA will want to shed a few of the light weight "talent" and get a few more hard working types in the line up. So who is the Core for the next 3 years. Eichel, Olofsson, Dahlin, and Joker to me are the only untouchables. Reinhart, Skinner, Kahun, Risto, and Montour are good pieces but also are good chips to trade and build the team he wants. Cozens, Mitts, and Thompson are prospects but nothing he should rely on. With having a pretty clean slate to work with this off season, I expect the 20-21 team to look different and definitely have some more toughness.
  4. If we can get Sam for 6-6.5 million then I keep him. If not Id rather have two guys like Tuch from Vegas and Anderson from Blue Jackets.
  5. Your top draft pick could end up being Nylander, Grigorenkp or Girgensons? Unless it is a top five pick, I would always look at trading pick for a young proven player already in the NHL.
  6. Revisiting thread... Would you trade rights to Montour plus prospect/pick to Montreal for rights to Domi? Would you trade Mitts and 2nd rd pick to Blue Jackets for rights to Anderson? Sign Domi to 6 year $6 million AAV contract. Sign Anderson to 4 year $4.5 million AAV. Sign Reinhart to 7 year $7.5 million AAV. Sign Olofsson to 3 year $4 million AAV. Top six would consist of line like: Olofsson- Eichel- Anderson Skinner- Domi- Reinhart
  7. I think I would have to do the trade...the return was huge and they filled lots of roster holes instead of taking just one guy. I loved Lindros but that return was unbelievable. Ricci was a young, point per game center Duchene was a mid 20's point per game defenseman Simon was still in the OHL, but was a big time prospect Forsberg played in Sweden for two years after the trade and then became an instant star once he hit the NHL Huffman and Hextall were throw ins to fill roster spots. Nords also recieved the next two first round picks which became Nolan Baumgartner and Jocelyn Thibault, (who was latraded three years later to get Patrick Roy)
  8. I think Calgary will disappoint again this year and look to make changes as well. I think Sam and Lindholm are pretty similar players, Lindholm plays center which is why I would rather have him, and also on a better contract than what Reinhart will probably demand. Miller would fill in as a 2nd pair when they lose Brodie to UFA this summer. Bennett would be a 3rd liner with Buffalo but adds the edge this team needs. In fact I would even throw in a 2021 2nd rd pick or Casey Mitts.
  9. Never been a huge fan of Sam's game but I get disappointed more and more each game. He's has good hockey IQ and can see the game well, suits well for the slower AHL/Jrs where he dominated. I just don't feel he will be able to be a force without riding Jack's coat tail. He does not have good speed, can't create any offense on his own, does not play the body and plays poor in the defensive zone. The only way I would sign him if I were a GM would be for my 2nd line RW at $5.5-$6 million and only expect 55-65 points each year. Like someone else stated earlier. I don't want the Sabres core of "big money contracts" for the next 5 years to consist of Jack, Skinner, Sam, and Dahlin. I believe the obvious one to be moved and try some new blood in the dressing room would Sam. Sweetlou special: Trade idea... Reinhart and Miller to Calgary for Lindholm and Bennett? Who says no, or is this fair value?
  10. I'm expecting another 80 point season right now which should get us a top 7 pick again. This team could be good...scary good in another 3-5 years just as Jack reaches the age of 27-30. Slow improvements this year and they got some good assets for the future. Still have too many guys that play the same type of game. Still need another bruiser on the back end, (maybe Borgen), and true power forward, ( would love Josh Anderson).
  11. Off season move to Columbus...Reinhart for Wennberg and Anderson. Anderson gives Sabres true power forward to play on Jacks wing and Wennberg gives Sabres true #2 center for next three years or until Cozens is ready. Also Anderson will be cheaper than Reinhart. Wennberg is a pass first center which would fit well with Skinner.
  12. I like bringing in Kahun for two guys that would not be here next year in Sheary and ERod...good move JBott.
  13. If Canes can beat Loafs with a back up goalie, Sabres should push the playoff button and play with some passion today. I want to see an all out effort for 60 minutes. They don't play again until Wednesday in Colorado so this is a must win game. With win Sabres can pull within 4 points of Florida and 6 points of Toronto with a game in hand on Toronto. I'm thinking 5-3 win. Olofsson, Vesey, Skinner, McCabe, and Jack with empty netter.
  14. Maybe in off season, but not now. Tampa all in for this year.
