ALL 31 TEAMS REALISTIC SEASON PREVIEW

Team: 2019-20 Buffalo Sabres
Team Explanation
Overview: I think Buffalo will be good this year and lots better but are they a playoff team? They improved their Defense tremendously with Miller, Montour and Jokiharju which was clean and there offense looks good and if they want to push for the playoffs, Hutton and Ullmark better be solid and that’s the biggest question mark I have with them. They will also need to see some growth with there young players and tbh Ik they still haven’t signed Rodrigues and McCabe so my question is how will there lineup look next year because in my eyes they have lots of players who can play for a spot but I gotta admit I don’t know where to put them accordingly. Also does Cozens make the team or a year in the minors?
Playoff prediction: Is still a no but I see them having over 90 points and just missing the playoffs and contending with the final WC spot but it will be close. Now if had signed a Bobrovsky then they would’ve made it instead of Florida but since the East got wayyy better this year it will be hard.

Why would Colorado take Bogosian and give you a pick for it? That contract is terrible.

Is it really though? He's in his last year. Maybe too high of a pick but it really ain't that bad.

I think they need a bottom pair or a potential 2nd line pairing RHD

That was my bad and now fixed. What do you think the lines will be especially on D? They have to many RHD now Idk where to slot everyone. Also, What happens to there left remaining RFA’S? So you’re opinion will be welcomed

Risto has literally never played the left side...he can barely play his correct side so thats an awful idea

If larsson and girgensons are both still on the 4th line (puke) Larrson is 100% the Center not girgensons

Sheary is for sure in the lineup over those guys

i would say theres like a 15% chance Cozens is in the lineup especially because he just had hand surgery

you forgot Pilut he should definitely be on here at least in IR

McCabe and Erod are for sure in the lineup opening night

Sabres are such a mess atm. As a fan I'm just going keep fingers crossed and hope for the best. Its really hard to expect anything as eventually some of these guys have to still get moved.

Would you give up a pick for Jonathan Ericsson?

No because the sabres don't have cap space
