Team Explanation
Brassard adds a bit more to their forward group. On a 1 year deal i think that contract is okay. Bogosian is likely going to be out to start the season. When he comes back, they'll have to find someone to take out of the lineup or maybe they go with 7 d-men.

just a few things 1) I think Brassard should be number 2 center 2) Victor Olofsson should be on the team and not Tage Thompson. other than that i think the team is good

While Brassard costs nothing in assets, he is 32 this season and will probably be looking for $3.5M minimum coming off his $5M prior contract. I floated the idea of the Sabres bringing in Sam Gagner as the 2C for the following reasons:
1. Oilers have cap issues and by a lot of reports from Edmonton, would happily dump Gagner and his $3.1M contract. He's presently slotted as their 3rd line winger.
2. However, Gagner turns 30 this fall and is in final year of his contract - so there's no long-term commitment to worry about if the Sabres envision Mittelstadt needing only 1 more year in a less-pressured 3rd line role until he assumes the 2C position.
3. Gagner is still an offensively-creative player who is effective on power plays and has some decent speed.
4. Gagner played under Krueger for 2 seasons and had some good seasons in the process - so there's a good chance reuniting coach and player might squeeze some decent production out of Gagner in a 2C role with increased ice time........plus we know that Reinhart will be more of the offensive catalyst on the line so that could boost Gagner's contributions.
5. Related to # 1, Sabres could probably send Oilers a draft pick or the RFA rights to Girgensons to get Gagner.

Again, just as with Brassard, the M.O. is for a 1-year stop gap. All of the legitimate 2Cs under more term aren't on the market or affordable with what assets Sabres have to offer to get them IMO.
