Bogosian Signs a 1.3 Million Dollar Deal with Tampa

It's in this thread, but I think the chronology went something like:

  • Sabres waived Bogo from the active roster.
  • Sabres assigned him to Rochester.
  • Bogo did not report.
  • Sabres waived him again for purposes of contract termination.
  • Contract terminated.

With the relative speed with which it happened, it appears to have been a mutual agreement.  The Sabres get a roster spot and cap space, Bogo gets a chance to sign on with a new club with a lower cap hit than was possible even if the Sabres had retained salary.  It seems like there was no interest from other teams to actually give something up to get Bogo; at this point he's being signed as pre-playoff defensive depth.

I understand this...my reply to a poster saying any player under contract can just quit and sign with another team. That's not true and Bogo didn't quit. He was cut

You buy to make the push (a UFA or 2 as upgrades on those you ship out), you utilize the critically priced asset or 2 (RHD and 1st rd) to address both longer term AND a push.

Show the players you believe in them Botts, give them the tools to make a real run.

At this point, I think our UFAs are of move value to Krueger than they are to any other team.  Krueger's system seems to be taking hold with the players we've got. 

Shipping them out now for upgrades would mean expending assets that could be used to continue building later, and disrupt the chemistry that is finally forming.  We've tried to play through injuries earlier in the season with poor results.  If you move a Larry, Lazar or ERod (yes even ERod) for another player the Sabres would do well to break even, performance-wise. 

If JBot is going to make a significant move today, it will be something that will help us next year and beyond.  It's not going to be anything that will help us in this year's playoff race.  For instance, to get a real 2C they will probably have to give up Risto, Montour and/or McCabe which would have a major impact on our defensive corps.  The team can't gain anything without giving up something, and they don't have enough depth to give something up without missing a beat.

As well as they're playing now, they missed their opportunity to be buyers when they went through their mid-season malaise.  The future is not here yet.  The biggest endorsement JBot can make in this team is not to get them additional help, it's to stand pat and see what they can do with the team they've got.  Any significant upgrade for the future will doom this year's playoff push.

Yep.  Mutual agreement probably worked out between both sides before anything official happened.

Berglund, on the other hand, literally did quit and although he didn't, he could have signed with another team.  It took longer to terminate his contract though... no mutual consent.  I think the only consent was between Berglund and his own self.

How did he quit? Didn't the Sabres cut him?

I didnt intend to say he quit. However, technically he did. He was assigned to Rochester and he refused to go,  aka, quit
