Seems about right.  Wished things worked out where he could have played for the Sabres. A real PITA that the Sabres need in droves. 

He could have played for the Sabres, if he hadn't demanded a trade. This is the second time in his career that he's done that and gotten away with it. How long until Daddy's coattails run out?

Long boring discussion really.

Rutherford didnt make any deadline deal predictions or comment on possible movement.

He was mostly basking in his deadline deal prowess while at the same time talking about the salary cap hell he created because of it.

He sounds like he isn't going to make a decision till the summer about his status but he could be bullshitting. 

Pierre and Scott go on to speculate his next move could be President of Hockey Ops or Senior Advisor somewhere and that several teams could benefit and more will be looking after the season. 

If Buffalo wants him,  they better get serious. I just hope he's A voice and not THE voice.

He is a clone of his dad though isn't he? Same rat bastard get you from behind or when you're down kind of guy. I guess if he'd stayed a Sabre I'd be okay with him as you do when you're a fan but as a player on another team I can't stand the guy.

Didn’t someone say that maybe he isn’t even able to sign a contract until June because he is still under contract with Pittsburgh?

The addition to Zajac to the package makes it hard to make a Hall comparison.

It does remove the other top offensive player available, but is there enough competition and flexibility out there to net us a 1st?

Personally, I’d rather have Palmieri than Hall for a playoff run, but maybe GMs haven’t been jaded by watching him play 30 with the Sabres.

I'd presume they're in this to balance out contracts.

Agreed. I’m not AHL savvy like some of the posters here, but with everything going on do people think they will even change organizations during the season? I’m not sure what kind of shape NJs AHL team or if either of these players would be contributors. I would also imagine that due to the pro teams close proximity that their AHL squads would also be close.

If anyone like me was wondering about the players NJ got, it looks like they are two AHLers who are 25 and 27. 

AJ Greer is (indirectly) the players the Avs took with the Sabres 2nd in the first ROR trade.

I say indirectly, because they traded down a few slots first.

Good news is that with Palmieri traded, one less option.
