A lot of hockey trades going on right now. Something I think Botterill really needs to get involved with.

I’ve seen some interesting suggestions on Twitter - one of the most interesting being Ristolainen for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. I’m not sure either team does that but it’s an interesting thought.

This interests me like a kick to the Jimmy. RNH is worse at everything than Risto. He scores less, is a giant puss and offers nothing in the line of clutch or playoff experience. Klefbom or Draisaitl better be in that package as well.

Are you still high from last night?   Because I am now and still know Leon > Ristolainen straight up.   Don’t want RNH but..... both for Risto is kind of, you know Ludicrous.

Might have to throw in Beaulieu to get his attention. 😉

Mr. Ankles,

You have been here almost a year.  You should know our Inky by now.

You couldn’t get Draisaitl for Risto and two of our firsts.

Would you do Risto and our lowest first for Klefbom and RNH? I would.

Now we are talking. I wouldn't do it as I loathe RNH but it's at least based in reality.

potato tomato, he's still our best D right now and he irritates opponents. we need that. He will be a fine #2 D man along with Dahlin as the future #1. You simply don't trade your best young players if you want to build a champion and overrated or not, he is still one of our best players.

 and get Edmonton to take Okposo’s contract in the process I’d be happy with that.

 

which is kind of a pipe dream condition. They're already stuck with Lucic and cap issues. Okposo's not going anywhere.

for me and my friends. like you say  tom-eh-toe I say tom-ah-toe but for those arguments/discussions when you feel it's the same in different words but if you go on about it you'll end up arguing for weeks over nothing. if that makes sense.

and if it doesn't, well never mind :)

I just didn't know if my old manness was relegating me insifficient in the vernacular of today's youth.

I'm pretty sure he's better at defending than Risto is. Heyoooooo.

Please change name of thread to "rumors involving sabres that make you want to vomit"

Eh. He's a mixed bag. You can get some really good play from him in places like breaking up zone entries. But you're also getting some really trash play from him in things like puck handling in tight areas and zone exits. 

He's important to the defense from a depth perspective, but I wouldn't say he's a "stud".

Sure....go ahead and trade Risto then.  This already soft Sabres team goes from 80% to now a 100% "Wussified" group of primarily 6" or taller players who collectively play like they don't want to get their Sunday church clothes wrinkled.  See how far that goes if this team ever makes the playoffs.

Both or either wouldn't hurt. Spooner is all Edm has to show for Eberle.  Chiarelli should not have a job.

Rags are retaining 900k so his cap hit is 1.6M for the rest of this year and 3.1 for next.  If he can get it together that's not awful but for the current year's performance that's not acceptable.  I really need to know what the problem is that Boston moved him, the Rags moved him again quickly, and now Edmonton is giving him away for nothing.

I wouldn’t take either to force them to make a deal. 3.1 mil Spooner is still a cap dump and seeing as he hasn’t worked out on now 3 teams; who’s to say he personally has problems off ice.
