So kids... Murray can officially talk to Vesey and convince he wants to be Jack's permanent winger... think it gets done.

I know it would be tampering but I would think Murray (via Eichel) must have an idea he can get a deal done with him.  Don't know where he projects and how good he can be but this is great news!!!!

Jimmy Vesey was drafted No. 66 overall in 2012. The third-rounder the #sabres sent to the #press for his rights falls at No. 76.


this isn't really a prediction, but I'll put it here anyway.  This is Vesey with some

comparables.  In addition to the chart below, I'm not really confident on how my model

deals with 22 year old NCAA players, so I like to look at when players reach 1000,

(NHL ready)

These are players within an inch and within 10 pounds of Vesey at age 17

Eichel reaches well over 1000 at 17

Toews, Boeser, and almost Pacioretty at 18

Stastny and Kerdiles at 19

Wagner at 20

Vesey and almost Blake Geoffrion at 21

Vesey at 22

Unsure how he will end up but he looks to be quite good.

Can you make these kinds of picks conditional? Like a third if he signs, but becomes a letter pick if he doesn't?

Sorry but can the thread title be changed to "acquired" or "traded to Buffalo"?  My first thought when I saw the thread was me, who got him?

This is what I've been talking up for weeks - he ws my #1 target in the offseason.  In line with exactly what we're trying to do in building a young  team.  A third is a decent pick, so I would imagine Captain Jack has had ...cough....cough...discussions with him.  I would hope so anyway

McKenzie: BUF GM on trading for Vesey rights: "Why not us? Why not give it a shot? We have a spot in our Top 6 for him. We had four 3rd-round picks."

Legit top-6 prospect. That a playoff team like Nashville promised him top-6 minutes in the playoffs tells you something. So excited. Get the deal signed!

He's being coy. Ink is gonna be dry before Matthews puts on his new sweater.

I think he projects as a guy who can step into a top 6 role.

 

I have to think/hope they know they can get him with the connection through Jack. You can't give up a 3rd rounder for a complete "shot in the dark". Very exciting but lets wait till he signs before going completely overboard in celebration.

More from McKenzie

 

Murray spoke to Vesey's agent Peter Fish to inform him of trade. Fish also reps Sabre Jack Eichel. Sabres/Pegula/Murray will make a pitch.

Looks like the leafs are trying to get a goalie to stop the bleeding the Sabres are about to inflict...
