Current Buffalo Rumor Mill

Created by: RevRyan
Initial Creation Date: Jun 19, 2019
Published: Jun 19 at 11:00 am
Team: 2019-20 Buffalo Sabres
Team Explanation
Here is another Buffalo crap shoot that could (probably wont) happen.

The biggest moves are the addition of Bo Horvat and Ehlers, both who are on the trade block for their respective teams. Vancouver wants a big bodied defenseman and Bogosian could be that. As far as Winnipeg, they are in tight cap situation and rumors said it would cost a high end prospect and a 1st for Ehlers.

Is Nylander still considered a high end prospect? He hasn't really proved himself, has he??

Dont know if I would give up 7th overall plus a prospect! Maybe a conditional 2nd for the next year or just next years 1st with no conditions assuming we will be better with the players traded for. The fact that they need to create cap space drives the price down on Ehlers a bit. I would do that Vancouver trade in a heartbeat if Van would go for it!

He is still an A prospect. Hasn't been given a good shot in the NHL to prove/say otherwise. His AHL numbers have been hampered by injuries

Would you ever trade Montour and STL 1st for Ehlers? I know you just got Montour but...

Horvat is the best player in both trades and is getting the worst return. Im confused. Bogo is not very valuable and that 1st is literally the last one in the 1st round....

Whoops my bad. I meant to have the 1st picks switched. So Bogo and the 7th, and the 31st would be in the Ehlers trade. Good catch

Oh ok. Yeah that would make more sense. At least more sense than before. Still not sure Vancouver would do that trade to be honest.

Montour in a one for one maybe, but our RHD is so weak without Montour and Risto
