  1. Really? Im surprised that you would say that about the McDavid/Mackinnon+Host trades.
  2. Got it. I was just asking because I didn't know the bolded. Drysdale would be in my top 7 of the prospects, but not sure if I would draft him at 8.
  3. Is this your top 7 players, or top 7 players for the Sabres?
  4. ^Draft 6th October. Thanks for the post!
  5. Let's say that the team is evaluated on more than just on-ice success (which has been very poor for the Pegula's tenure). Let's say that the jobs pumped into the local economy, charity events, and other things for Buffalo. To show that the Sabres are a successful hockey team, they would have to be doing more than the average hockey team in these categories. I'll wait for you to show that.
  6. What do you guys think about Risto+Mitts+ pick (2nd?) for Monahan+Bennett?
  7. Sam actually can play away from Jack, he just can't really do it as a C.
  8. If I read your post right, your principle reason that the Sabres will be better is that it happened before after a major hockey event, so it will happen again. I think this reasoning is pretty poor. One instance does not indicate a pattern, and without a clear pattern, behavior is unpredictable.
  9. Undoubtedly. I would be appalled if the leafs or the penguins got ahold of lafreniere.
  10. Incorrect- Tampa was the number 1 team last year, they would not have had a chance, as only teams 9-24 have a chance here. There is an additional round, a normal first round loss is about equivalent to a second round out this year.
  11. I have not. The source is a friend, and I dont want to pressure new out, I just listen to what he tells me.
  12. Maybe Dudacek is just trying to hide his identity here to a degree, so he isn't mentioning his Twitter account?
  13. Larsson is a UFA, he is not an asset that we have to trade.
  14. I think he preferred wine. I think he preferred wine.
  15. About an hour out till we know. Please, hockey gods, be kind.
  16. Right now, I view Kahun as a good 3rd liner that's likely gonna get stuck playing 2RW, where he likely won't quite be up to snuff. I have a feeling we won't view him quite so positively next season, but that's more due to not having 2 good top 6 Rw than him being bad.
  17. Honestly, I don't see this lineup as much better than last year's. Our defense got much worse so that we could upgrade 1 spot.
  18. I don't really have anything to back it up, but I think that the top tier UFAs are still going to make top dollar, and not significantly less than they would have without the corona. I think teams will be bidding on difference makers, and that the role players (the 2-3 million players) are the ones that will feel it the most.
  19. That's why I said usually a 2nd liner. If he is your 4th best forward there's a reasonable chance you have a Rw that may be better.
  20. I would agree with that statement, but I think Sam is a top 6 player. IMO, he is a first liner on a bad team, and usually a 2nd liner on a good team. For a good team, he should be around the 4th best forward.
  21. I know it would never happen (nor would I probably want it to), but a lightning trade for Eichel would be interesting. Something like Point+Cirelli for Eichel+Cozens, picks/cap from either side to make it work?
  22. And then there's the worst case scenario where we don't add a 2C, and the kids can't really play, but still have to. Oloffson-Eichel-Reinhart Skinner-johansson-Kahun Mitts-Cozens-Thompson Asplund-Lazar-okposo With some mid to bottom their FA mixed in there
  23. If Reinhart isn't on Eichels line, without adding to the roster, it is likely one of Kahun/Thompson. Ideally Thompson shows he can hang there, and that leaves Kahun as a 3rd line Rw, which is a good sign for the team. I have a feeling that this season is going to depend a lot on the youngsters. Even if we pick up a 2C like Granlund, we still will be in need of 2? Of the kids stepping up. Here's what the lines might look like with Reinhart on line 2. Ideally: Olofsson-Eichel-Thompson Skinner-Granlund/trade 2c?-Reinhart Johansson-Cozens-Kahun Lazar/asplund/girgs?/Larsson?-Okposo. This lineup (provided Thompson/Cozens can play) actually looks solid. Best middle six we have had in years. That top line might get a little bullied, but I'm hoping Eichels will sort of cancel that out. If Cozens/Thompson disappoint: Oloffson-Eichel-Kahun Skinner-Granlund/trade 2c?-Reinhart Asplund-Johansson-Lazar Girgs?-Larsson?-Okposo The 2nd line is still good, but that 3rd line looks like it's going to be slaughtered just about every game.
  24. Anybody have an idea what Granlund would cost?
