They are really interested In Turcotte, so I imagine he would be the target in a trade up. 

Moving from 7th to 3rd would cost 30/31 and a roster player/prospect, is that too high of a price 

With the lack of talent on this Sabres team, i’m on the fence on this one. Do you really want to give up first round picks?  Is it worth doing for a can’t miss player?  Since drafted players are generally about player development and this organization has a poor track record, i’d Go for the best talent you can get.

The Fourth Period is reporting that as of now Taylor Hall does not want to sign an extension with the Devils. He has one year remaining on his present deal

Surprised he doesn't want to stay honestly, they have a ton of talent coming

The one thing we know for sure is he ain't coming here

Hall for Risto, Sheary, Asplund, Thompson and a 2020 2nd.

And next year I would offer him a 8 year 8.5 mil/per. Heavily front loaded.

Hall isn’t going to want to come and stay here either. Also TFP is mostly a shitposting website so I don’t trust them.

Kevin Hayes to Philly.

Probably enough backroom tampering to know he will sign there.

I would like to see him pull a Vesey and sign elsewhere.

Yeah, true. The Islanders got him first but couldn’t sign him. Panzer commander was well compensated for his output.

This one came from David Pagnotta, he is one of their most respected contributors. LeBrun and McKenzie both follow him on Twitter and he appears on Sirius NHL Network quite a bit. I put some credence into this one. 

That being said, as you mention there is NFW he comes to the Sabres.

Hall doesn't want to stay in Jersey because they aren't good and you think he's going to sign a 8 year deal to play in Buffalo? Let alone sign here for a discount.

Nope. I didn’t say that in my post. I didn’t say what I think Hall’s mindset is.

No, you just proposed that we trade Risto, Sheary, Asplund, Thompson and a 2020 2nd for him even though he only has one year left on his contract. Then you said you'd offer a guy who won league MVP just 2 seasons ago an under market value contract, as if there would be any chance in hell that he'd even entertain the offer.

Buffalo Sabres:  A roster reckoning coming

John Vogl of The Athletic:  Alas, the Buffalo Sabres’ offseason could be very good or an unmitigated disaster.

 

Buffalo may offer sheet Kasperi Kapanen then sign Jake Gardiner from Toronto for starters. Then, the Sabres acquiring Jacob Trouba with the assurance they sign him would be quite the coup.

The Sabres are hoping players like Victor Olofsson and Alexander Nylander can step up is a bit of a stretch but possible.

Finally, this would rid themselves of Rasmus Ristolainen and several fringe players as well.

However, there is a bad scenario. Buffalo finds themselves unable to re-sign Jeff Skinnerand he walks for zero. The roster looks the same minus Olofsson and Nylander getting second line minutes. Worse, the Sabres would be learning a new system without any real upgrade in talent. If anything, this represents a downturn.

I think all members of the PHWA should stop speculating about offer sheets until we actually see one signed or the genuine threat of one used to advantage.

The penalty will be being forced to hear "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" on a turntable off-centered until, like Horst Buchholz as "Otto Ludwig Piffl," s/he confesses to being "und Amerikanischer Spion."

I’d take a chance on him if the price is right.

Watching him at the WJHC he was as good as linemates Laine and Aho. He just has not developed.

I would jump all over this as a buy low candidate.

TJ Brodie, anyone?

From the Athletic -- an article about top 20 players likely to be traded -- https://theathletic.com/1011961/2019/06/05/nhl-trade-board-top-20-players-who-could-move-this-summer/

Quote

4. T.J. Brodie, Calgary Flames – The belief from teams outside of Calgary is that GM Brad Treliving would move one of his defensemen in an attempt to provide salary cap flexibility, along with providing opportunity for some of the young defensemen coming up in the system. The almost 29-year-old Brodie has one year left on his deal that averages $4.65 million per season before hitting unrestricted free agency, so now might be the best time to move. “I think Brad is going to move one of the two (Brodie or Travis Hamonic),” said one executive. “He needs space.”

He shoots left, he's 6'2", 180 lbs and had 34 pts in 21.5 min per game last year for a division-winning Calgary team.  He's from Chatham, Ontario -- closer to Detroit, but only about 3.5 hrs to Buffalo.

His contract status is obviously a major issue.
