Lineup with no more moves

Created by: RoyalBlueSabres
Initial Creation Date: Aug. 28, 2019
Published: Aug. 28, 2019
Team: 2019-20 Buffalo Sabres
Team Explanation
I think there is a very small chance we dont make a move or two before the season but if we dont here is how I think we start the year.
I believe most young guys will get a chance at some point up in the big leagues, such as Smith, Cozens, Thompson, asplund and depending on how they do they might get to stay. Joki will crack the lineup sometime this year and stay which I believe will force a Risto trade close to the deadline which could raise his value if their is a contender with D injuries/issues. Pilut will replace scandella when healthy. Which hopefully prompts his exit. If not hunwick might get dropped to AHL/ waivers and scandella might get the press box.
For the offensive lines I think this gives them the most balanced approach which was their big issue last year. Top line has your playmaker in eichel goal scorer in skinner. And the hope that sheary could have a big bounce back year playing with the big guns. Sheary might be the misfit but to balance the other lines I think he is the beat forward not needed on other lines to play up.
Second line has play maker in Mitta who hopefully makes the jump. Goal scorer in goaloffson and possession driver/ body in front of the net in reino.
Third Line has the jack of all trades at center the play maker in johannson and goal scorer in front of the net player in vesey.
4th line is a good defensive line with minimal offensive ability. Not great but not awful either.
The sabres big issue with their lineup is they have a lot of quantity but not a lot of quality. I think this means they will have some trades through out the year to injury riddled teams. And that their big success years are a year or two away. But should be a much improved team from last year.
