Recommended Posts

Wait what?

The Buffalo Sabres have acquired forward Jeff Skinner from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for forward Cliff Pu, a second-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, a third-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft and a sixth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.

Not a Skinner fan, but the price isn't unreasonanle.

Not a big Skinner fan, but he'll be a better fit than Kane and the price we paid seems like we got a good deal.

Pu will fit right in, number 1 pork producing state in the nation, also biggest pig shiite problem too.

Holy crap. What a get from Botterill. I'm still unsure about the D, but the top 6 is looking LEGIT.

This came out of nowhere, so, it's not easy to assume no defensive moves or others could be on the way, you never know. 

Skinner - Eichel - Okposo

Sheary - Mittelstadt - Reinhart

So, assuming he's the 1st line LW, guessing that Sheary is 2nd.

Guess LW is no longer a major liability.

Skinner - Eichel - Reinhart

Sheary - Mittelstadt - Okposo

Rodrigues - Berglund - Thompson 

Wilson - Sobotka - Baptiste

What's Skinners contract like?

Expires after this season. He had a full no-movement clause, so he had to approve this one. Hope that's an indication a contract will be next.

1 year left at 5.75 mil. 

Have to imagine they are looking to re-up him as soon as this summer.

I like it, although they dropped a Pu for someone who is likely a 1-year rental (Skinner is a UFA after this year).

The Sabres have plenty of picks. Getting an established Skinner for the possible potential of Pu and a few picks that are likely not to amount to much is a very good get, IMO. It's time for this team to start moving forward instead of perpetually waiting until next year.

I find it highly unlikely they won't sign him.
