He’s on a 35 year or older contract, the Sabres would be responsible for his entire cap hit for the duration of the deal.

Even if he retires 

When he retires...again...

You can only protect up to 1 goalie that meets the exposure criteria (Luukkonnen won't have to be exposed and won't count as protected) and have to have at least 1 exposed. 

So, if, say they pick up Holtby (just as an example, no reason to suspect he'd be here) and both he and Ullmark would be under contract heading into '21-'22, then at least 1 of the 2 would have to be available to Seattle to pick up.  Any other guys that might still be in the system like Hammond or Hutton would also have to be exposed.

If they somehow didn't have any goalies other than Ullmark that met the criteria to be exposed/ protected, then they would have to expose him to Seattle and would not use their 1 "save."

Would have to go back and review whether Johansson could be the exposed goalie, but pretty sure he can't be as he has pretty much no NHL experience.

It’s a pretty easy work around if by some chance Johansson doesn’t qualify. Signing someone like Hammond, who you plan as an AHL bet, is an easy fix. Johansson is finishing his ELC this year and at this point I think they plan to give him a chance beyond this year. Hopefully he projects out to an NHL backup. If that games played piece isn’t factored in, he’s our exposed goalie. 
 

if I’m reading the rules correctly, Hutton can’t be that guy because his deal expires three year of the draft.

Well it is an easy fix, if you're good with fixing it after the Seattle draft.  Otherwise, you need to have them on board with your plan to fix the goaltending.

I’m alright with Galchenyuk as long as he isn’t “the” acquisition. If you can make a dollar for dollar swap, why not. 
It’s like when Punch took a shot on Jacques Richard. It didn’t work out but it wasn’t a big deal in the end. If he goes on one of his unconscious streaks he could win you a game or two and be the difference in the race.

i am more and more convinced that all this team needs is a legitimate number two center and top end goaltending to not only make the playoffs but win a round or two. I think the internal debate right now is if Casey and the number one pick are on the table.

Depends how confident Botterill is in D. Cozens.

Actually, yeah. Frolik is the kind of guy that could get hit for ten games. People seem to miss the fact the an extra win or two credited to some hot streak could be difference between making playoffs and not.

There are probably going to be six teams battling for two spots and there will probably be two to four points separating them.

Because the “useless” forward might be better than the “useless” forwards already on the team, thus improving the team.  Should Buffalo not attempt to add anyone unless that player is a 30 goal scorer or an all star or something?

I don’t know if his skills are in decline due to age, but Frolik has a long history of being able to produce 15ish goals and 40-45 points with good shot share numbers when given given middle 6 mins.  Also, he has scored 3 games in a row.  He isn’t that useless and actually neither is Scandella right now.

I hope so, because it seems like this is holding up other things at this point.

Frolik sucks, but lets not pretend he wouldn't be better then several current Sabres. Girgensons, Erod and for half the season Vesey. And reports did say Sabres were in for a top and bottom 6 forward.

Outside of his stats not looking very good, I know little about him. Is he physical, does he pk or something?

He’s a good bottom six, given the fact a potential trade is being spoken of in past tense, I wonder if Frolík’s M NTC prevented things from happening

Friedman said today on TV that he thinks the Devils held out Hall in the hope it would spark other teams to up their offers, with them thinking a deal with presumably Arizona was imminent. Lol.

Apparently the player that Arizona and NJ are haggling over is Kevin Bahl and neither of Arizona’s Top Prospects are included as of now

I don’t get why people say Scandella is useless?  I think he has played well this season.   He is a left hand shot, we have mostly righty’s.    

I think we get fleeced in a straight up trade for Frolik.   He is 3rd line player that has many miles on him, making him a 4th line player on a good team.  He is no better than Zemgus, Okposo or Vessey.

Calgary was been inquiring about Scandella since the summer. As you mentioned Frolík is not a good return for him

Assuming this is what your are referring to: 

I'd hardly calling that "reporting on the trade".  More like, "this is what all of Twitter is saying."
