Eakin was brought in to take the pressure off cozens they arent trading him.

Staal is worth a 2nd, not a 3rd IMO.

But since there's no salary retention, I can see why the Canes would only give a 3rd.

That's a bad reason not to trade a player that doesn't fit your team...

And he has brought nothing but a negative impact to the teams play anytime he is on the ice. Cozens has transitioned very nicely to the NHL and has shown some good flashes playing Center in Jacks absence. To say they won't trade him is just silly.

I see that seems to be the consensus in most AGM's, but he has regressed tremendously from the player he was last year. I would be happy with them getting a 3rd, a 2nd would be even better.

He is only regressing because he is playing for Buffalo instead of Minnesota.

If he goes to a competitive team, he'll perform much better.

Any ufa should be available.

Try to re-sign Ullmark and McCabe.

What is the Sabres record without Ullmark, he's 5-4, and McCabe???

I think hes regressed because he's 36?
