Wouldn’t be my target for sure, but as long our centre depth chart remains Eichel/Mittelstadt/Larsson/Sobotka I’m interested.

Pretty much where I'm at. Obviously he's FAR from ideal, but the bottom line is we need more NHL centers.

Is Namestnikov more of a centre than Johansson is? Actually asking. 

I like the look of Eichel/Johansson/Rodrigues/Larsson a lot better than the group you listed.

In my head they both started at centre, MJ has been away from it longer. 

I like that centre group better too because I’d rather play Risto at centre than watch Sobotka, but neither of your middle guys are natural centres. 

I don’t think he’s the answer either, but Asplund is the natural centre being constantly overlooked here. He was scoring at around a 60-point pace in the 2nd half against Rochester as a 21-year-old AHL rookie, which is pretty impressive, especially for a defence-first guy. i think he gets called up at some point this season and never goes back down, making Larsson or Girgensons trade bait in the process.

JUST what we need.  Another GM with Pittsburgh & Carolina ties.  <_<

The cost for ALL players Botterill has his eyes on just went up.

Of course, should the Sabres hang onto Sheary 2 more years, we might have just found a player for Seattle to covet. :p

Are we OK with it if he make them into the Whalers instead?

That’s quite a detailed article for a breaking story and much longer than what I’m used to seeing from our beat guys.

unfortunately, they still have Bryan Trottier as an asssistant with the Sabres.

He was PoHO for a month and then fired in Carolina?  Does he still own a stake in that team?

That's a bit of an odd choice.  He wasn't the least bit successful in Carolina.  There must have been better options out there.

According to wikipedia, the J.T. in J.T. Miller's name stands for Jimothy Timothy. Is that real?

Thank god we didnt trade Risto for Jimothy Timothy

This is sad.  I wonder about a history of concussions and the aftermath in dealing with them.  There is no real information coming out, but it appears that another former NHLer took his own life.  Sad, just sad.

I kind of remember him, but not really.  That doesn't really matter, though.

He did pry Teravainen out of Chicago for nothing.

I'm sure you could find a positive trade somewhere on Mike Milbury's list too.  Zero playoff appearances over a GM's tenure is all I need to see for a basic summary of his performance.  Now maybe you give that kind of guy a shot when you need a GM today.  But Seattle had so much more time to shop around or even wait until someone else became available.  It's definitely a head scratcher.

Without Skinner we would not even be on the chart.
