Description
This is my second attempt at this.

I’m a Bruins fan doing Buffalo, but I tried to be fair.

Some big moves, but i think the value is decent both ways.

Some buf fans wanted Jt, but I had to trade for his rights to justify the signing. If they couldn’t offer the extra year then I don’t see why he’d pick them over all the other options.

Their castoffs get sent to good homes for reasonable prices.

CAR
  1. Bogosian, Zach
  2. O'Reilly, Ryan
  3. 2019 2nd round pick (SJS)
Additional Details:
2018 2nd buffalo pick #32

Trade happens at draft, too early to tell if Kane resigns and the SJSU pick becomes a first.

Carolina has someone in mind who falls to #32 so the trigger gets pulled to finally acquire a top line center.

      You're missing a lot of the sabres younger talent. Ie mittlestadt (can't be put in Rochester), nylander, guhle, Smith etc. Grabner and Cole are not needed.

      Yes you did a good job for a guy that doesn't know much about the team, but this is not at all what will happen on the offseason

      Mittelstadt can be sent to Rochester next year, that issue only applies to this season. That being said, I'd be surprised if he doesn't make the team out of camp.
