Sabres Practice Notes 11/13

Recommended Posts

ERod puts in an honest day's work, but I wish we had a real 2C and Mojo was our "Swiss Army Knife" player instead of Rodrigues.  The Sabres are still lacking in forward depth.

Looks like Scandella will be back tomorrow night if he's practicing with Joker.

That's a lotta defensemen...

Seriously, who sits when Bogo is healthy?

Seems like they should trade some of these guys?

They probably need to move at least two players if they want to carry Gilmour as a 7th.

Honestly.  Was this scenario not mapped out on their boards over the summer?  Was Botterill hoping RK could increase the cache of one or two of our D to make a trade irresistible by the rest of the league? 

Even by adding one good forward, this team still can't afford to hover just below .500 through January.  It'll be tenuous all the way through April.

Looks like one reasonably physical D man in each pair?

You'd have to imagine Bogosian eventually gets a rehab stint.  Short of a trade, Gilmour's a virtual guarantee to be waived shortly.  It doesn't sound like Johansson is an IR situation, so they don't have any roster spots for all of these bodies.  If Scandella is in fact active, they're maxed out with the 2 spare D and Johansson up front.  They needs as much time as they can from Bogosian to sort this out.

I wonder if this could actually hurt JBot's trade prospects:  If other GMs feel like his hand is getting forced, they might reduce their offers.

It sure doesn't look like Bogo is going to give them any time if he's subbing in on regular D pairings in practice on day one.

I don't think they want to expose Gilmour to waivers. So you gotta think Scandella is trade bait if he's healthy, and then one of either Risto or McCabe...

When I look at how ungodly terrible that forward group looks when it's missing just one player, a player that's probably only the 4th best forward, and the list of defensemen who have to SIT when we take only six of them...

What the actual ***** are you doing Jason make a trade for the love of god

Bold prediction:  Mountour will play RW tomorrow in place of Lazar.

D pairs will be

McCabe-Ristolainen

Dahlin-Miller

Scandella-Jokiharju

Who sits now? 

Jokiharju, Risto, Montour, Miller are all healthy. This garbage line I hear from WGR and from the National guys about Buffalo waiting to trade because of defensive depth is absurd. We don't have room now for everyone let alone when we have 5 NHL RHD.

Bogo and Scandella will be traded soon for draft picks.  Hopefully 2nd round pick for each.

Not so sure Scandella gets traded.  When he went out the PK seemed to be giving up a lot of goals.

Interesting that it seems Scandella is back in with Miller the odd man out.

They are getting traded at some point before the trade deadline.  They are both UFA and won't be resigned

And they're 1-4-1 since he got hurt, and that doesn't include the time he missed in the ugly loss to the Rags.  Coincidence?  Probably, but I can't help but notice how quickly things have gone south without him.
