Created by: gerowrj16
Initial Creation Date: Oct 10, 2019
Published: Oct 10 at 2:14 am
Team: 2019-20 Buffalo Sabres
Team Explanation
- Botterill has made it clear to other teams that he isn’t giving up Risto easily
- If Jets are really looking at Risto, Botterill is doing at his terms, he’s not giving up anymore assets. If the Jets say no then there are plenty of the teams that are in need of defenseman
- Pilut will fill in later in the season when Scandella gets back to his old self but as of rn he’s not doing too bad

We do not need Ehlers, because we have Sobotka in the top 6, four games, zero points, normal flight. squinty smile

I’ve never seen a more impotent player with the puck on his stick

He looks like the kid who got picked last and the rest of his line has to play the game around him.

Botts risks getting jail time if he pulls that trade off.

Who the frank wants him...lol I'd put him on waivers and send him down to Rochester and bring Thompson up. He'd probably refuse to report and that gives us the opportunity to sever ties with him.

I was surprised that Sobotka was in the line up over Rodrigues. I guess winning 64% of his FO in this season is better than Johansson team’s worse FO% of only 32.5, and gets him a spot in the line up.
I remember CBJ using Dubinsky as a FO specialist in the PO. I think he won a face off then raced to the bench for a more offensive minded player. But that is not how RK is using the impaler (Vlad).

Because is trying to keep a good reputation with players, they all notice if they feel a player has been treated badly,. . Moves like that will cost you down the road . It is hard enough to get players to come here. If anything Botts will scope out European options and give Sobotka a choice of where he would like to go .When they feel Thompson is ready to step into Sobotka's second line position We get the same cap relief as sending him to Rochester
