There isn’t one player that we received from the ROR trade, 1.5 years ago, that is lacing it up in the NHL right now

My only hope for him was if he beefed up and evolved into a power forward using his size. With a bum shoulder (even if successfully repaired) He's probably never going to be anything of note.

I think you might be able to make an argument that the 1st round pick we sent to ANA became Mountour? But yeah, the optics for that aren't...great.

Actually that was the SJS first rounder, JK.

Two consecutive years of completely stunted development, for different reasons. 

Now all he needs is to develop a chew and video game addiction.

That trade will go down in the annals of NHL history as one of the top 3 worst imho. What a straight out cluster ***** this organization is. Just, WOW.

Per Sabres PR

Any word on why it took 2 months to decide to go the surgery route?

Hoping that by doing this he'll actually eventually get strength back in that shoulder.

Didn't seem like that bad of a hit to do that much damage.  Well, get well Tage.  See ya next training camp.

Depends if it is his AC joint.  Still why the hell did it take 2 months?

Or Labrum where tears can be hard to spot right away.

It could be a partial tear of either the rotator cuff or the labrum. 
 

They could have offered rehab or surgery to him and he could have chosen rehab in an attempt to save a part of his season as the surgical recovery period would have taken him through the end of the regular season. 
 

The real issue issue is that he could have done this a month ago and not pushed it closer to the start of training camp

Buffalo has done some real doozies of bad trades. 

How about this one:

Andreychuck + Puppa + #1(#12-Kenny Jonsson) --> Toronto for Grant Fuhr

Then later:

Grant Fuhr + Philippe Boucher + Denis Tsyguov --> to LA for  Huddy, Stauber, Zhitnick, & blown 5th round pick.

 

So, in summation it is:

Andreycheck(1LW))(HOF) + Puppa(1G) + Jonsson(1D) + Boucher (1D) +Tsygurov(7D) --->Huddy(4D), Stauber(3G), Zhitnick(1D)

Really, it is a bunch of great guys for one very good d-man in Zhitnick.

 

Real Cloutier trade was another stinker:

McKegney + JF Sauve + Savard --> Cloutier(party boy bum who was kicked off team by Bowman 1 year later) + Creighton(3C/2C)Giraffe

Creighton was later traded to Chicago for an over-the-hill Rick Vaive(1RW)

But, yeah,  Ryan O'Reilly for Ryan Johnson is a total fail.

(Bergland quit on team, Sobotka just starts to play well and gets knee blown out and is a UFA, Thompson is a bust and injured).

Ryan Johnson, while a true Freshman, isn't exactly lighting it up in college.

I have commissioned a well known international artist to create a piece that expresses the abject hopeless depression and unspeakable pain I am going through right now:
