I smell a parade coming in downtown Buffalo next summer. 

Did St Pat's get moved to the summer!?!?

Hmm...Flames fans are calling him an elite penalty killer and great 4th liner.

We certainly need the former.

This is an excellent under the radar move for the Sabres

Good thing we got him signed quickly on the 1st afternoon of FA.  I bet the competition for him was fierce.  Now that we got that key signing out of the way, we can just sit back and wait for bit pieces to be filled. 
 

Excellent plan. 👍

Didn’t those same fans say that about Frolik?

Order seems to be of great importance to you.

Let’s see what comes after Reider and Irwin.  😉
 

The good news...nowhere to go but up. 👍

What about sideways/lateral?

And the dark, unending, murky abyss that is down.

There's always highly overpriced/over-termed contracts and unwise trades.  Doing nothing, at the moment, is significantly better than doing significant self harm.

It was day 1 of UFA, there was no legal tampering period. Why are we melting down because all that happened was some depth signings? Most of the UFA forwards are still sitting there available, a large chunk of players went unsigned yesterday. Take a deep breath.

For some ... fanatic = dramatic 😂

I think day 2 and 3 will see some bigger names drop.

You probably have had aspirations that you've not met.  I know I do.

That said, not many people here, if any, are defending the Pegula family and their performance to date.

I'm sure you feel better after posting the quote though, so you've got that going for you.

I agree. Think about it, you are 27-30 and you get to pick for the first time probably the team you play for. It could be your last or second to last deal, why wouldn't you take it slow and at least consider all your options for a day or two.

Certainly has the wheels.

So if we get to the playoffs, we can count on him to score?  Is that the message?

He was supposed to be one of those players that every team needed and loved to have and after a few solid seasons ,  kinda flamed out. He started out really nicely here in AZ a few years back, not sure what happened to him.

Krueger says he has world class speed, good PK. 

Buffalo had a terrible PK, and the 4th "energy" line always seemed listless so... probably covers 2 things there.
