Good, maybe Johansson will get a call to the big club and Hutton will...

I don’t think so but we’ll see. It was always the plan to get UPL into Roch. this season after he rehabs. Which, he has.

Just float away.

With the rest of the garbage. Then what?

Then we've got to find ourselves a new backup goalie. Any ideas?

Johansson is an AHL all star no? Call him up and let him and Ullmark Duke it out. Either that or call up Hammond and let UPL and Johansson split games in Rochester.

UPL looking good in the E, maybe it translates to the A and allows him to further his development. Hoping that is the case.

UPL and Mittlestadt in the same uniform, on the same roster...……………..is this what the future of the Sabres looks like?

Hammond looked like garbage on Friday.  Bring up Johansson when they want to give Ullmark a night off.

At this point Hammond couldn't be any more useless than Hutton. Would demoting Hutton to the A make him lose his love for the game?

 There is no chance Buffalo waives Hutton.   This organization is more concerned with appeasing players than icing a winning team.

You are probably right, but he does deserve to be waved. Hutton just fell off a cliff

Unfortunately I think you might be right

This is where he belongs, the ECHL is clearly not enough of a challenge for him.

Let’s hope JBOT makes the right goalie moves to give him plenty of games.

Hmm, so UPL is going to Roch just for the week?  Interesting.  I’m fine with it.  He is just 20 and coming off a big surgery.  No need to push him too hard.

The Kid has shined in every league he has played in during his brief time in North America and at last years Juniors.

I wouldn't be surprised if he looked like he belonged in the AHL too.

As for Hutton, I don't know why anyone would be shocked, the Sabres picked him up as a 30 year old who came off of one good season (and the only one where he played close to a full workload for a starter).

Yup, and fwiw, Jordan Binnington also played a full season in the ECHL after leaving junior hockey. He played 40 games for Kalamazoo.

@Inkman just wondering what you are skeptical about? Thanks

I didn't see the tweet about it being just a week. I didn't know where the info came from.  Carry on, just me and my inability to read.

UPL to start Friday night's game in Roch.

If he doesn't get a shutout he's a bust.
