Jack gets one so why not Samson!? This one feels like it might be heading toward a resolution.

This is a couple days old by David Pagnotta had some pretty strong words on Samson's future being outside of Buffalo.

SABRES WORKING ON REINHART DEAL

The Buffalo Sabres have been working the trade lines and GM Kevyn Adams has been putting in the work. Aside from Jack Eichel, who still doesn’t have a clear path on what surgery he will have to repair his herniated discs, the Sabres have multiple players they’re chatting about.

Pending restricted free agent Sam Reinhart is not expected to be with the Sabres much longer. The Sabres had talks with a few teams about Reinhart leading up to Saturday’s freeze and depending on whom you talk to, there’s uncertainly over how close a move actually was. But the writing is on the wall and Reinhart’s long-term future in the NHL doesn’t have the Sabres in it.

Moving Reinhart, who had an impressive 25-goal season under the circumstances, will bring back a solid return for the Sabres. They’d like to replace his spot in the lineup with a young, NHL-ready player as part of a package.

Trade talks will continue this week and the Sabres could make headway around the NHL Draft. Adams is willing to stand firm, though, until he gets the package he wants.

I’m still really hoping Samson stays.  He looked so good under Granato and I would love to see what he can do with a full season with Granato as the head coach.  

Two big questions. Does he want to be here? Will he sign long term now? Answer is probably no to both.

Sauce?? Was just about to go to bed

It was the live update from Friedman just before they signed off.  Sounds very close.  Doesn't know all the pieces but they're working hard on it.  A trade call that has to take place.
