Brandon Montour Out for Rest of Preseason with a Hand Injury

Recommended Posts

If true that hurts and you would think would put to rest any Risto trade.

Unless Botterill’s Asking Price is met

Yikes.

If so, it’s a good thing Jbot loaded up on RHD.  Great opportunity for Jokiharju, Miller, Borgen and Risto to prove or improve their position with the Sabres.

Next man up!

Also sometimes the best trade is the one you don’t make.

Guess that Jokiharju and Dahlin pairing stands a better chance now.

Could be worse? If he's going to miss some time get it all outta the way with; don't rush it back just come back 100%

Wasn't Cozens a hand injury too?  It's time to fire the entire training staff because they clearly have no idea how to strengthen hands.

I think @inkman will probably suggest another way to strengthen hands.  I hope no one shares a gif for that.

Right. There's no reason to turn down the trade you want just because Montour will miss a couple weeks. It's not like Montour's career just ended.

I love the idea of Joki and Dahlin together in a couple of years.  I'm not sure putting a 19 and 20 year old out there together in a non-bottom pairing setting is the best idea.  That's really too bad about Montour as I really liked the look of he and Dahlin together late last season.

That and you do have about 85 defensemen on the roster.  It wouldn't hurt one of the kids to get a few NHL games under their belt.

Yes.  This.  Montour will likely be back by (American) Thanksgiving.  If there's a deal out there to improve the forwards I hope this injury doesn't sway Botts.  We need to upgrade the forward group.  Guys like Borgen are ready to show up and I have faith will tie us over until he returns.

I recall McDavid missing about a month with a busted hand. Maybe 5 weeks. We still have 2 weeks before the first game even happens. If Botterill thought like that he needs to gooooooo

That said, if he was inclined to wait a couple weeks into the start of the season anyway to get teams to be more desperate a la Duchene trade, this probably makes that more likely

If a decent upgrade is on the table today you take it.  If not, I'm fine with the bolded approach. 

I'm not trading Risto for a third line forward unless there is already something worked out with another team to utilize the $6 mil cap space for something else.
