2020-21 Trade Rumors and Speculation


Recommended Posts

Here's the Athletic on Hoffman:  https://theathletic.com/1786155/2020/10/08/top-20-nhl-ufas-analysis-projections-and-thoughts-on-the-class-of-2020/

Do you want to pay over $6 million per year for the next five years for an empty calorie goal-scorer who will be 31 when the next season begins? Then step right up for the chance to sign Mike Hoffman who will probably score a lot of goals without actually helping much.

For the past two seasons Hoffman has proven to be a 35-goal, 35-assist talent – but how much does that matter when the opposing team earns 55 percent of the goals and expected goals? He’s a great power-play weapon, don’t get me wrong, but at 5-on-5 he’s a major liability despite the production and at 30 he’s only going to decline further. His value has dropped in three straight seasons already.

 

yeeeeeessshhh.

Former Sabres prospect Cliff Pu was acquired by Columbus from Florida. I really thought he was going to be a significant contributor for the Sabres based on his OHL play, but after he was traded to Carolina he just faded to the point he was playing in the ECHL.

Not interested 

Especially to help the pursue Pietrangelo

You have to stop thinking this way. If AP wants to go to Toronto he will sign with them. If the Sabres have a chance to improve their team by grabbing a 3C in Kerfoot and/or Andersen for a year while removing the logjam at Defense, make the deal. 
 

Someone will take good players at low cost from the Leafs after they sign AP. Now if the Sabres stand pat, while both the Leafs and the other team get better what’s the point?

How about we take Andersen and Robertson and they can take Montour... how about that?

I'd rather that happen due to it being more difficult for them to pull off; anything that helps a division rival, especially the Leafs, is a major no no as they gain far more than we would.

Looking at Buffalo's D situation on capfriendly.

Is Borgen ready yet? What about Fitzgerald.

Also, does Pilut get a shot at a full time LD position?

Looks like the Sabres have some options to move a couple of D and at least 1 forward and still have some depth, no?

Isn’t Pilut gone? I know he signed a contract in the KHL but do we still keep his rights? I was always confused on how that works

Pilut is in the KHL until further notice.

Borgen is ready for a look I would think, but he has 4 NHL RD ahead of him.

Fitzgerald, IDK, but I doubt he is ready.

Source said talks with Calgary are heating up again- not the same trade, but one that would bring in a top 6 forward, and a goalie.

Give me Monahan *****

Top six forward? Not that we can't use good players, but with Staal and Hall coming in, that seems almost redundant.

If one's coming in, there likely is another going out. If so, that has to be Sam.

The goalie has to be Rittich. They just signed Markstrom and Domingue.

Flames do need an RD

Thinking about Sam. I would think if he's going out I hope that means Hall is more than one year. If we're not extending Hall then I hate not keeping Rinehart.
