Buffalos Moving on up

Team: 2018-19 Buffalo Sabres
Team Explanation
One blockbuster and then small maneuvering.

Not a playoff guarantee, but not an easy win either.

I didn’t add the 1st round pros.pect because there’s a higher chance they don’t finish with pick #1 and players other than Dahlin might not be nhl ready.

Ullmark will be the #1 next year, so I think the addition of Darling is unnecessary here. Also -- Guhle???

Darling is a core piece of the deal given buffalo gets to dump Bogosian.

Darling can be the backup if Ullmark is better.

Guhle gets half a season in the ahl until injuries force a call up that’s why he’s missing.
