Yeah, it’s definitely an issue that would affect his value, but players are able to come back from such things.  Crosby for example went through a similar stretch in his career and came back good as ever.

I might offer a 3rd.

But it turned out Crosby didn't have a concussion but a pinched nerve in his neck from what I remember. Once it was fixed, his concussion like symptoms stopped and he was g2g.

Same as Lapierre's 2nd concussion?

Let me ask you all though: Let's say Pegula sets a budget and things will be rough for a couple of years. If so, this team probably can't truly compete next 2-3 years and Eichel and Dahlin will be wasted.

What IF the Sabres blew it up completely, and say, got the top pick this year for the Rangers for Lafrienere involving Eichel? And Dahlin would get back a TON. Imagine how Adams can reshape their roster top to bottom and the system and truly put this franchise where it needs to be while the budget issues go away after 2 years or so.

I cringe as I type this, but at this point, why not?

The hockey news is now reporting that the Bruins are in communication with the Sabres. Bob ! Go to your room! Now buster !

I saw a rumor today with a guy close to the Bruins saying they're trading Krug/his rights because he's gonna be too expensive

Smart move by the Bruins if you ask me.

If you blew up the team for picks and young players odds are you would be at a worse situation in a couple years because it would be extremely difficult to match the current elite players in Eichel and Dahlin to build around. To put it bluntly: Perish the thought. 👽

Given the winger and 2nd line situation with regards to the Sabres (actually the overall forward scenario, but I figure I'd be specific), would goalie be considered a core target of the Sabres? Just spifballin' some thoughts is all.

Reports are that Sabres have been looking into the goalie market pretty heavily.

God I hope Sabres don’t go after Lundqvist...

Maybe not as a player eventhough he would be a great mentor as a backup, i would go for him if he decides to put his career to an end as a goalie. I think Henrik would be a great addition as a assistant goalie coach or something like that. 

I would also sigh him if cheap as a backup. Send hutton to whatever.
