Have the Sabres looked at the standings in the last month?

Also Simmonds is washed. So he won't actually add anything

Big L, Massive L, Huge L by New Jersey but its fun to see Buffalo actually buy at the deadline again like they did last year with Montour.

This trade was likely to open up cap space for the Devils. Puts Simmonds closer to his hometown so I think this will benefit him. Still wish he went to the Leafs...

Sabres are only 6 points back with a game in hand and hot as of late... Decent addition... Hopefully we can add Hoffman or Palmieri and make a legitimate push.

Simmonds is washed up, so win for New Jersey for getting him off the books.

Figuratively nothing, it literally is a 5th round pick which is something.

They got Simmonds for free basically so big win there for Buffalo.

Why would Buffalo do this tho? They ain't making playoffs. Maybe they plan to extend him. 2 year/$3,500,000 -$4,000,000 ball park.

They're only 6 points behind Toronto and have a game in hand. If they win that game in hand the race for 3rd in the Atlantic is Toronto 72, Florida 70 (game in hand), Buffalo 68... Not out of that race by any means.

They said they were adding and they're 6 points out. I dont have a clue why this would confuse you

I like the idea that this gives us cover to move someone like Sheary. If somehow Sheary gets move for a third, I'll take it. We're effectively moving a fifth for a third, and getting a different type of winger.

But you're right, we still have a need down the middle.

tears of joy this is just funny! How did the Ducks get more value for Grant than New Jersey got for Simmonds?! This is just a terrible trade for the Devils.
