Team: 2019-20 Buffalo Sabres
Team Explanation
2C set...plenty of cap for following season... Cozens is a flyer, but wanted those 3 from Edmonton, and they accept with him in deal. Scoring depth vastly improved through lines 2-4..CJ Smith in to help move Okposo and salary..will take less to send them.

    Okposo trade to Colorado doesn't make much sense for the Avs... why take on that contract?

    EDM trade is interesting but no way am i giving up Cozens without even seeing him in a sabres uniform

    My thinking with Cozens is that if you want that stud 2C and improvement on the RW, you have to give up a gem..the "risto must go" crowd is happy, Nylander is close to a bust, Nelson is an NHL bottom D. With Ox, trying to dump his salary, hoping someone like CJ's upside enough to risk it...not saying it would work with just him, but alleviates the problem.

    TO BE FAIRRRRRRRRR

    The EDM trade is nothing I want any part of. Cozens is not the guy I wanted at 7, but I'm still not trading him right away.

    To be fairrrrrr

    We're almost at trading away a 1st to be rid of OX, CJ isn't enough
