          I would love to have Karlsson. I just do not think Ristolainen and a bunch of 2nd (at best), 3rd & 4th line players and a good 2nd round pick will do the trick.

          So what is Karlsson's new contract? I know the cap is going up, but geez the Sabres are getting close to with a poor team. Lot of big contacts.

          There is no way that the Sabres could make this trade...... The reasons why Botterill would not make this trade:

          1. The team has too many holes and you are gutting the current options from within to assist in filling those holes;

          2. This is the type of trade that gets a GM fired.... I think he really wants to get through year 2 of his first go round as a GM;

          3. Risto is not going anywhere he is very much in favor by ownership, management & the room;

          4. Nylander is coming into his own the last month in the AHL once he got over the injury bug that hit him this year;

          5. Bobby Ryan contract alone will get a GM fired;

          6. The Sabres give up 2 first round selections in Risto & Nylander (3 if you count Girgensons) though he was a reach when he was selected in the 1st round then they also give up pick #32 in this years draft..... I just do not see that happening;

          I do like the idea of Jack taking #9 but I think he will probably opt to stay with #15

          Back loaded so maybe like 8 or 9 mil cap hit first couple years and increases once Bogosian, Pominville, Moulson, Okposo and Scandella contracts are up.
