You might be forgetting Declan Chisholm (3rd highest scoring d man in OHL this season.

How do you win a trade when you acquire Citizen Kane and Bogo?

Let me know when Mr. Chisholm wins his first Norris, and we'll talk.

Third-highest-scoring defenseman in the OHL.  WOW!

Who?

Yes, 5th round pick, he's 20, older than Dahlin lol. That wasn't really much of an accomplishment - it was his second post draft season in juniors.

At least he didn't cost us a first and a second rounder...It is moves like these (Montour trade) that inhibits the Sabres from building a solid team.

I'd rather have Chisholm than Bogo for 5.3m per year to be honest. 5.3m per year for over 4 seasons for 67 points... think about that for a minute...

Myers had almost twice the points. 

Kane 118 points

Staf 70 points

Armia 58 points

Roslo 68 points

When the trade was made, in their eyes Stafford replaced Kane, Armia and Lemieux were future top 6 players, Myers was the next Chara, and the pick was used on inevitable 2C Jack Roslovic. 

That’s the narrative. I’m reality, they acquired almost zero lasting return. Perhaps a nice depth bottom 6 player in Roslovic. Ironically, they gave away Armia for nothing to facilitate the Mason cap dump and Armia looks to be the most serviceable player. Smooth GM work.

No one is saying It was a win from the Sabres' side.

Are there no Jets forums around?

Indeed, the trade can be parsed till the cows come home but that's kind of my point - the classification of it as a ridiculous fleecing and the hyperbole surrounding it from the Jets side was dumb, and always was.

Chip off the old block — that’s exactly he kind of dirty BS play his pop delivered regularly.

And I don’t see how @Ducky can be crowing over the Kane-Myers trade. Kane was the best player in the deal and it ultimately ended up being mostly sound and fury.

I will say that I’m curious as to whether most Jets fans think the playoff run that @Ducky alluded to was primarily due to the trade.  It sure didn’t seem that way from here — the guys the Sabres gave up didn’t seem to play huge roles for the Jets.

John Chayka out as GM of Arizona.  He took a non-hockey related job, it looks like after he was given permission to interview with said venture.

Wonder if they'll get another heavily analytical GM again or change directions?  Would expect they'll continue in the same direction.

I would expect so.  Keeping their model in tune, at least for the next few seasons to say the least.

I kid you not, it took me about ten minutes of thinking about it really hard to realize just what the ***** Sheary was doing out there for the Pens.  The trade deadline / hockey games being a thing that actually happened feels like a million years ago.

Cam Talbot looking a little skiddish. Oilers and Flames forgot it’s an exhibition. If the Oilers keep this hunger alive I won’t be surprised if they go deeper than expected.

Don't forget him having our first 2 goals this year: we'll see if he can keep it up
