Team Explanation
Sabres are definitely still going to be growing next year, and I think we could find a perfect partner for Dahlin in the form of Foote. He's been excellent in the AHL, but TBL needs cap relief that we can afford.

I'd be willing to even it out more with taking on someone like Killorn for a third.

Trades
BUF
  1. Foote, Cal
  2. Callahan, Ryan
Additional Details:
A set top-4 for TBL means they can lose Foote in order to buy some cap relief and some decent compensation. Nelson can more than hold down the 3rd pairing Foote was expected to take.

Additional Details:
I think Foote is better than anyone we could add with the late first.

    Cal Foote is one of my favorite D prospects and I think would be the perfect Dahlin D partner for years to come, however I think you have to wow Tampa alittle more to get this deal done.

    Trade would prob go through. No clue what caseys contract is but as long as it’s under 1.5 mill I think they’d take it they need cap relief.

    Tampa says no.
    Foote is needed by Tampa in the future and maybe this season already. The prospect that will go with Callahan (even tho I think it will be a 2nd rounder pick) will be a Forward.

    He's at 800k. His play and underlying stats are good but he hasn't been playing in the NHL long enough to command much when he extends.

    Then I think the trade is fair a first round pick and defencemen that can play and cheap for 6 mill in cap space and a good prospect.
