Team: 2019-20 Buffalo Sabres
Team Explanation
Selling and Buying would be a pretty good idea for Buffalo. Also with Seattle coming into the league all of this is a mute point. It's hard to justify trades because they're not ready for a cup run and if they trade for someone they have to not only resign them but also protect them in the draft

ANA accept, fair trade
Winnipeg accept fair trade
Edmonton decline IMO but still fair
LA accept, fair trade
Dallas decline, Vesey is worth a 5th now at best / Exemple MTL trade yoy Beaulieu for a 3rd and you were trying to get a 3rd back,,, you finally got a 6th
OTT accept
MIN decline, no reason to trade EK for a 3rd round pick, he's young

To begin with, I would try to get Botterill to make at least one deal, I certainly would not count on such a number of trades.

WPG and LAK are terrible for Buffalo. ANA EDM and OTT all easily decline. The other 2 trades are fine. Thats a lineup built for a top 10 pick

I think that the only RD of yours in whom Anaheim would be interested is Jokiharju, and you aren't trading him.

Could be argued that the roster right now is primed for that

I mean you think Risto and McCabe are our best defenseman

I think Bogo holds his own and did decent. This trade isnt a block buster but more of a need filler. Ana was rumored to want risto, this is a very cheap alternative. But your point is also 100% valid

That would be a hot take over just a bad spell early in the season. I understand Sabres fans are having a PTSD episode because of last year, but we really going to lay down on the panic button in the first week of November?

McCabe currently is one of the Sabres best defenders, until Dahlin gets his groove back, even then McCabe will go back to being under rated but still one of their best

It was more of a, "ok the past ten games the underlying numbers are getting worse and worse." There are two new additions to a team that picked 7th last year. Playing Sobotka and McCabe big minutes shows the lack of man management we have this year. Putting Larsson out as an extra attacker. It's still too early to judge Kruger but you can't deny he's had some head scratching decisions. There's glimmers of hope but I wouldn't exactly think playoff team with this roster.

He's negative in most categories and runs his own bakery full of nothing but turn overs. He hits people, that's about it.

A defensive defenseman with majority defensive starts and PK time doesnt have positive possession stats. Color me shocked.

This is just blatantly wrong as he has 5 GAs this season and is 3rd on the team in the TA/GA category (when excluding part timer Rodrigues)

This is the same war that was made for Risto. The only difference is Risto contributes Offensively

Nope I certainly do not say that, I just say they are players we should keep because they are not bad players whatsoever. I'd say our best defender has been Joker all season
