Buffalo has been more than patient with him through his hip surgeries and rehab, I don't get it.

And he's an UFA after this season anyway.  

Seems odd.

We have a log jam on defense and he needs to get some game time in before his next semi-annual trip to injured reserve. Otherwise he might not be able to sucker a new team into giving him his next contract.

Howie's "like" on Twitter is certainly interesting for us, but it's not a good look for him.

Hahahahahahaha   Is this The Onion?

The dude who has missed by my rough count 168 games and counting over the last 6 seasons, while getting paid $5 million per year?

Sorry Zach, you're never available, you're not that good when you do play, and you don't get a spot saved for you.

Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

If his agent let this leak out that he wanted traded he is one stupid agent.

It's a small club, someone is calling Howie to get his opinion as to why he liked it.

Call it a reference check for a potential hire.

 

Edit,

By small club I mean coaches, ex-coaches and GMs.

Perhaps Phil and Zack didn’t get along much when Phil was HC ? Seems odd Phil would hit like on M Harringtons comment.

No, I'm serious.  Really really watch that door, Zach.  It would probably break you and void the trade if we're that fortunate to find a taker.

Only if the condition is.... if Galchenyuk doesn't score 20 goals you have to take Sobotka.

But then wouldn't we all be cheering for him to fail and not score?

Bogosian is Tim Murray's tenure in a nutshell.

What does this even mean?  Should we also say that Victor Olofsson is Tim Murray's tenure in a nutshell?

Roughly 98% of press connections are player agents, and the Sabres have run a tight ship since Botterill came in. It almost certainly came from Bogosian’s camp. 

98% ? Really?

1. Overpaid in cap hit

2. Overpaid in assets to get him

3. Underperforms

4. Too long term on contract to go with the overpayment

Murray loved guys like this that fit some or all of those categories.  Luckily, we can hopefully finally get rid of Bogosian.  All that's left is Okposo, but at least he's filling a need for this team, albeit at a very inflated price.

None of those applies to Olofsson, a fortunate 7th round pick.

It wouldn't matter either way. Sobotka's contract will be done by the time we found out the final results in April.

How do folks feelmabout a bogosian fof galychunck trade straight up? Does Pitt need D?

Dec 12th: BOGO requests trade from Buff

Also Dec 12:  Galchenyuk's ice time increases 65% to 16:39 after spending most of December getting less than 10 minutes a game

 

You think they announce this trade today, or wait until tomorrow?  😂😂😂

Bogosian needed start with a rehab assignment. Have him play 4 games in Rochester to knock off the rust and get back up to AHL speed first. Instead, he's been much too slow to be showcased and he's been outshone by our young puck-movers and revitalized Risto. Add to that the misses on assignments, is still getting up to speed with the new coach (no camp, etc.), and not being as tenacious as he once was...   The best thing Bogo could do is be overly physical for a little bit, if his body is up to it, to try and catch a GM's eye who thinks their team lacks grit and might overpay for it and some depth.

Miller (3rd pairing in LV) was for a 2nd and a 5th and had years of term left. But he's healthy and has high-end shot and could be a 2nd PP guy.

Bogo is an injury-prone 3rd pairing, who never gets PP time and is on a bad and expiring contract. Maybe a 4th? Maybe a prospect who needs a change of scenery? Putting on my "Other GM" hat, I'm not giving us anything for Bogo.

I dont see the sabres getting anything of value for him. Honestly he is a player at a very high salary that misses 40% of his games. He should count his lucky stars  that nhl contracts are guaranteed and he is still in the league. instead he looks like a troublemaker by stirring the pot on a team that recently found its legs again.

I agree. We could probably get a 3rd round pick at the deadline from a team hoping he'll be healthy enough to be playoff depth, but we'd probably have to retain 50% of his remaining salary to move him. Without retention, we'll be lucky to find a buyer for anything better than maybe a 5th round pick.

Am I the only one not upset about this and thinking it doesn’t reflect poorly on Bogo?

He probably just wants to go somewhere he will get to play every game so he can prove he is healthy and deserves another NHL contract.  Find him a place to do that.

I don’t think he had much trade value to start with.

I dont care he wants to be traded, I am annoyed with the timing mostly and the fact he hasn't earned his pay while here .

 

I want him to be traded even if it's for a 2098 7th round draft pick

I don't think most here are PO'd about the trade request itself.  The problematic part is making it public.

I don't think anyone is upset, just baffled as to why his agent leaked it.
