  1. I am a young fan (18).Ive been a Sabres fan (loosely) since I can remember, growing up listening to the games over the radio with my Dad. The past couple years I have gotten more into it, despite a lack of success. Favorite Sabre: I would probably have to go with Ryan Miller. I don't recall any of the glory years, but he was an exciting player on decent teams. Honorable mentions to Vanek and Eichel. Most exciting moment: I went to the game against Philly during the 10 game win streak of last year. We DOMINATED that first period and it gave me hope for the year, leading to the most frustrating moment, of that team falling apart. How would I fix the team? I would go after a 2C, preferably Monahan or Cirelli (fully realizing that it won't happen) Then I would try to add another top 6 Rw, but I would only want to lose one of Risto/Montour to get these done. (Don't want to sacrifice our defensive integrity)
  2. I would think we would need to shed 2 of the above to aquire both Boeser and Cirelli, and still fit under the cap.
  3. Our 4th line+defense are gonna take a hit to get under the cap with that.
  4. No, because our C depth is about equally bad to our RW depth, and C is more important. I'm not gonna sacrifice our C spine now and in the future for a RW. But pick 8... Maybe that would work for me.
  5. Really? Im surprised that you would say that about the McDavid/Mackinnon+Host trades.
  6. 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.
  7. Is this your top 7 players, or top 7 players for the Sabres?
  8. ^Draft 6th October. Thanks for the post!
  9. 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.
  10. What do you guys think about Risto+Mitts+ pick (2nd?) for Monahan+Bennett?
  11. Sam actually can play away from Jack, he just can't really do it as a C.
  12. 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.
  13. Undoubtedly. I would be appalled if the leafs or the penguins got ahold of lafreniere.
  14. 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.
  15. I have not. The source is a friend, and I dont want to pressure new out, I just listen to what he tells me.
  16. Maybe Dudacek is just trying to hide his identity here to a degree, so he isn't mentioning his Twitter account?
  17. Larsson is a UFA, he is not an asset that we have to trade.
  18. I think he preferred wine. I think he preferred wine.
  19. About an hour out till we know. Please, hockey gods, be kind.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
