Vesey signs with Rangers; huge thread now moot

Recommended Posts

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

Also who the fudge is VesCey? fix the thread title JSB

 

I think it gets done for sure. I indicated a couple days ago I was curious as to why Murray hadn't already traded for his rights - guess I should have known.

 

Good deal, good top 6 potential. Good job Tim!

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."

Suck on that, "because Buffalo" brigade. Why not us! That's the attitude baby!

Yup. Between this, and Des' new contract, and the MSG news, and seeing another cursed city finally break through, it's been a great day.

This pleases me. If all goes to plan that's one less top-6 forward we need to worry about protecting in the expansion draft as he'll be on an ELC.

Never even thought of that.

He will step in right away I think, cause he's already 23.

 

I think our second line next year is:

 

Vesey - Eichel - Reinhart

 

That's awesome.

 

Is Vesey decent defensively?

Assuming we sign him, I'm officially out on any long term contracts for normal wingers. One could still make an argument for Stamkos, obviously.

Having the same agent as Jackie Boy is a good fact for the Sabres' chances of signing him.

 

Strong move by GMTM Stormborn, Breaker of Chains.

He has a strong all around game.  I think he puts up similar number to Reinhart and completes that line.  Before you laugh at that, remember he's 3 years older than Jack and Reinhart.  Jack and Reinhart also just found another roommate

The REV line, Reinhart, Eichel, Vesey

Wow! Expected to see something go down this week, and it's only Monday! Hope Murray can sign him quick.

If he can get this fella signed now-ish, does that make it even more likely that he moves #8 as part of a deal to get some LHD help right now?

 

Oh, man. ...

OK, who's got actionable intel on Vesey?  I didn't see much with a google search for a Vesey scouting report. 

 

It looks like he has good scoring touch and can pass it as well as shoot it.  Is he fast?  Tough?  Good hockey IQ?

Peter Donatelli, who represents Jimmy Vesey, had this to say about the Buffalo Sabres acquiring the rights of his client from the Nashville Predators: "In our opinion, the only thing that has happened is now the Sabres have stepped into the shoes of Nashville for exclusive rights [to negotiate] until Aug. 15. However, at this time, it doesn't change Jimmy Vesey's intention to become a free agent on Aug. 15."

Not surprised at all. Vesey has maintained for months that he wants to be a UFA and chose his spot.

Well, assuming he gets signed, (which is probably safe @ this point) that fills one of the longer term holes in the top 6. Anyone think he doesn't start the year on Eichel's wing?

Awesome. Now trade for Hanifan so the three of them can vie for the Beanpot at practice.

 

GO SABRES!!!

My sources are telling me that I've been told that this fella had just been shot, and died moments later.

Makes sense.  Especially at age 23 you can see where he'd be in a different frame of mind than an 18-19 year old - that just thinks, I don't care I just want to play.

 

This sounds a bit more genuine than just a negotiating ploy.  I do however think that all things being equal - we're a team he should be looking at anyway.

If his rep is right and it's not just a negotiating tactic that's frustrating.

 

It would probably be a good idea for Vesey to sign now and get into somebody's system. Get to the camps. Be in the city.
