Sabres only deadline thread

Tick tock Jason. Are we actually making a push or just wasting cap space for no reason?

With Bogo out and Simmonds in Jbot is effectively ahead about 2.6 mill in cap space.  

He also now had 14 forwards and 1 hour to make more changes.

Someone is going.  Erod?  Sheary?  I doubt Vesey.

Has anyone looked at our PK % since Frolik joined the team?

I did and put it in the GDT. 

We were at 74.7% before Frolik's first game and are 75% since.

I said it this morning and @TrueBlueGED said it earlier too, just seems like Botterill wants to make enough noise to say he tried just to give himself enough rope to go through the offseason and do whatever he really wants to do

How ever did we survive without that .3%, thank the gods for Frolic...

If this is the only move he makes today then he should be fired.

I have to believe there's a couple more deals in the works. Why the Sabres wait until 3pm to pull the trigger is beyond me.

But if he stands pat as is, he ought to be fired immediately.

Don't worry, he'll probably pull another Scandella/Frolik deal involving Miller or something.

According to the interview with Darren Dreger on WGR550 last week, he wasn't expecting much from Botterill before the trade deadline. Dreger believes Botterill will be very busy trying to overhaul the roster in the offseason. Maybe Botterill will be busy trying to find a new job? Who knows?

Yes, it's actually been quite festive and fun this morning, rather than waiting until noon to even start the music. Several trades won't get finalized/announced until after the deadline as the paperwork goes through.

I would guess at best a 3rd round pick.

I'd like to move Frolik, but they won't because they don't want to look bad getting a 5th or a 6th so soon after the Scandella thing

Calgary's Gaudreau replacement.

And Simmonds was clearly acquired to be Johnny Hockey's bodyguard

At best. Get back what they have for Simmonds. Erod  for Simmonds.

At best? ERod + Pilut + a pick for Henrique. But yes, probably closer to a 4th. Someone will like his versatility.

So, they wanted Sheary but Botterill wouldn't budge and sent them Rodrigues instead?  Good for him.  It's at least a hint of backbone.
