Olofson has not even played a full season.  I cant imagine he gets more than 3.5-4 mill. 

This. olofsson’s contract will be a mirror of the one Kubalik just signed, which I believe was 2 years, $3.7 AAV.

So now one player has come to Buffalo because of Kevyn Adams and one has come because of Ralph Krueger.  That's not so bad.

Wonder how much better Staal feels about the trade now?

I’m completely shocked and completely thrilled. A gusty move and completely worth the risk.

Now do we keep Reinhart also?  Does VO get traded.

The brilliance of the move is in combination with our roster so I really hope we don't lose either. The strength of the top 6 we could roll out. I assume VO is here, Reinhart is the only one that gives me pause, but I'm thinking/hoping they get it done.

Thought I saw it reported he had a full NMC.  So he's here unless he doesn't want to be here.

Gotta feel better.  It's a 1 year shot to see what they can do.  It's not going to be easy with the way the division stacks.. their division seems to be the toughest in hockey right now.

What we learned from this signing is the best thing JBot did for the Sabres was hire Krueger.  Without Krueger as our head coach, we have zero chance of signing Hall as a FA.  

Could still be Cozens

Wow...Sabres suddenly have at least 2 potent lines now...teams can no longer just focus on Eichel's line...

 

Now if the D and goalies could get it together we have a good chance of ending the playoff drought!

Would we move Miller and Mitty for a goalie?

Which is prudent for him on a 1 year deal. He came here to play on Jack's wing and rack up points. With a NMC he controls the situation and prevents the Sabres from flipping him to what he perceives to be a bad spot.

In reality if things go sideways and the Sabres are looking to trade him he will likely be OK with waiving it to be moved. It just gives him a seat at the table.

Hard to see them moving these guys when Hall has only a 1 year deal. He could be traded by deadline.

 Harrington enjoying “Crow” for his Sunday dinner? Especially after the condescending remarks about the Kahun decision.  

The fact that posters still give him “FaceTime” or exposure on message boards and such ... sucks. I wish collectively no one would give him the time of day.... oh well.

The Sabres now have four tremendous shooters/snipers on their roster: Jack, Hall, Olofsson and Skinner. What makes these players even more effective is that all of them (even Olofsson to a lesser extent) are good skaters. That skating talent in itself will allow them to create space for themselves.  Not only is this team more talented but it will be more entertaining to watch.

I think he only felt shock because it wasn't expected, he intended to stay in Minny to end his career and I don't believe they informed him he was going to definitely be moved

This is what I came up with:
 

Skinner-Eichel-Reinhart 

Hall-Staal-Olofsson

Girgensons-Lazar-Okposo

Eakin-Cozens-Thompson

Rieder

 

This is just tremendous.  Two sexy looking lines, each with a legit MVP candidate level player, the pieces for a checking line that can be used defensively, and a line that is young and can be sheltered, but has nice offensive upside.
