@Weave you are 100% Correct about Nylander. 

What was his weave's position?  I find it hard to keep track of everybody these days.

It's in arbitration. There is ZERO chance the Sabres walk away from the awarded salary.

Not saying it’s likely, but what makes you say “zero chance”?

I think about him being bullied by O'Reilly ***** him up a bit.

More of Nylander lacks the drive and appears just not to give a ***** most games.

This trade will be acclaimed a Sabre steal by the internet because amateur prospect watchers perceive Nylander a bust and Jokiharju a riser. To scouts it’s a trade of two talented kids of approximately the same age and similar ceilings. 

Some will remember having Alex ranked in the top 10 three years ago and say it’s not too late to save him from Buffalo’s mishandling of him. He will probably get a shot in the Hawks top 6.

So we should believe that both are similar because you said so? What are your credentials for scouting NHL talent?

Also he had a lot of injuries already, he might turn into a top 9 for the blackhawks still.

This is obnoxious.

Jbot was serious about creating job competition.  It’s also a hint that Bogo won’t be healthy enough to start the season.  It also might verify Wildcard’s feeling that Risto is gone.

I was going to point out the injuries but you beat me to it. He’s missed significant time in all of his pro seasons so far.

Can we get Joki his second 'j' in the title?  😉

I like the trade, but it definitely adds to the "something else is coming" feel of this offseason.

Build an elite defense, get better goaltending, and improve 5 on 5 scoring and you can get back in the thick of it.

Thanks, but which part was I correct about?

 

NM- saw upthread.  To be fair, most of it was based on other peoples observations.  It's not like we saw alot of him.

I am excited to get this guy. I remember seeing him in the WJC, he was a key player for Finland. As some have stated, he played half a season in the NHL as a 19 year old, that means he's got game.

Good luck to Alex, I think he'll make it with Chicago but he doesn't seem to bring enough desire to have a lot of impact.

Can't wait to see Dahlin and Jokiharju lead the charge.

JBot, get us a 2C now, you have some currency.

Great trade. We should have a little more faith in our GM after today.

I didn’t say both are similar, I said the internet will say this is a landslide for the Sabres, scouts will rank it more evenly.

I’ve barely seen Jokiharju play. But I read too much about hockey, and try to pay attention to both popular and professional opinions and I’m confident that what I posted is a realistic representation of what I’ve read. Use the info however you see fit.

Also, go puck yourself 😋

Oh yeah, another TM draft bust gets dumped on another team.   

So now the Blackhawks have brought in 2 prime GMTM Sabres debacles in Lehner and Nylander.

Hopefully Nylander will get it together like Lehner has done so far.

Lehner was not a debacle in Buffalo.  He posted a .920 behind THAT team.

I'll wait until they actually start winning hockey games to have more faith in anyone

I would have hoped that all the moves he has made since the ROR deal would have instilled some hope.  Since the ROR deal he has added Johansson, Skinner, Montour, Miller, Vesey, and Jokiharju for 3 questionable prospects (Guhle, Nylander and Pu,) some draft picks and without losing a roster player.
