Team Explanation
Moves are all along the lines of being harder to play against, Girgensons and Grabner are both quick guys that can help out on the PK both had 70%+ Dzone starts last year which we need from the bottom 6. McCabe is also a big upgrade on JJ.

J and Jarry for the 7th

Rust and the 5th for Slaray retention on Hornqvist

I don't think Bjugstad is enough incentive for BUF to move McCabe

That and Hornqvist has a NTC. I don't think he waives to be traded to OTT, which is what I'm understanding is the point in getting him to BUF. Maybe the only way there is that it's a three way trade, but I'm not sure how OTT would be able to retain salary there on a player they never technically acquired. I think the risk for Hornqvist is there, that OTT doesn't move him out after he waives because they don't find a suitor with a package that they'd want for him, and he's stuck on a rebuilding team.

The idea was Bjugstad is an upgrade for BUF on Girgensons, They also get Hornqvist who would have $2 mill retained from OTT

so a discount Horny and upgrade on Girgensons is what gets you McCabe.

This was how the Deal with OTT and Vegas worked when PIT acquired Brassard Vegas retained $2 mill of his contract and got assets in return. The hole trade happens in one go so it's not a like they traded to Vegas and then flipped him to PIT they were pieces moving between all teams. https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/117635
