Sorry we sent out 5million and brought back only 925k

We cleared that for this season. Kahun is on an entry level deal and Sheary and Erod were worth 5mil

That's what I thought, which means it only really matters until 3pm today

Good, I hate long waits.

You're a Sabres fan, right?

Why would Larsson want to come back here?

The team sucked during his time here, but he also went through some horrific injury problems and the team stuck by him.  I could see some loyalty there.  It all depends whether Angry Larry thinks the team is moving in the right direction and close to meaningful competition in the post season.

Which does make me think we'll see something else, even if it is another Simmonds-type move where you're giving a short term tryout to another high price guy who hasn't worked out.

After seeing last game, how anyone can say with certainty sheary is better than simmonds.   If simmonds can collect a pass he is instantly better.

What I mean is, being a Sabres fan is like slowly being digested over a thousand years. So... I'm just trying to keep my mind on where I am... what I am doing.

He's 24 and turns 25 in July.

5'11", 175 lbs.  He played 2 years in the OHL (Sudbury, eh?) at ages 17 and 18, then played professionally in Germany for 4 years, then 1 year with the Blackhawks (37 pts in 82 games -- not bad for a rookie) and then 27 pts in 50 games this year with Pittsburgh.

He also played for Germany 3 times in the World Juniors and for them in the 2018 Olympics.

I wonder if RK knows him?

Seems like a nice pickup for 2 UFAs with little value.

.5 ppg and possibly still rising at center.  Sounds good.

Can he mesh with Skinner?

Can Skinner mesh with Skinner?  I don't think you "mesh" with Skinner.  You load him and wait for him to explode.

Could see it go either way.  By most likely being below the actual cap now (rather than just under what they're allowed to be w/ BF-LTIR) they can pay some of Dahlin's & Olofsson's bonuses out of this year's cap rather than next year's cap.

Just watched a grainy video that had some of his goals in Chicago. he was always within 10 feet of the goal line. A good first sign.

I'll try a Skinner - Kahun - Simmonds  deployment on for size. 

Sounds like the kind of line that strafes behind enemy lines.

Can’t say we’re a farmhouse for Pittsburgh with this deal. Kahun is a solid piece and is RFA. Neither Rodrigues or Sheary had any future with this team, and Sheary was barely contributing on the ice. Kahun will in one role or another.

Huge cap dump for the Sabres and for an actual center.

He never really played center in Pitt; mostly left wing with Malkin.

From his stats and bio he looks like a younger Larrson.

If that is true we might just have 3 legitimate 3rd line centers.

Which is the best we've had since Sabotka went down.

Sounds like he is a winger who spent time with Malkin this season.

Someone who knows more than me, is Kahun actually a center?

If he is, he doesn't take faceoffs. 22 last year and 28 so far this year. Yahoo fantasy has him designated as lw/rw. And that's all the research I'm prepared to do.
