    I'd be crying if Mete got claimed by Buffalo.
    Not cause I'm a Canadiens fan (cause Im not)
    Cause I feel bad for ANYONE going to that disaster

    Cuz he’s better than any other LHD the Sabres have under contract next season (unless you count Dahlin as an RFA)

    Free replacement for Montour. A 22 year old that at very least could tempt Seattle and they don’t lose someone they paid an asset for.

    He’s on waivers because he doesn’t have a spot on Montreal’s left side with the current construction of their lineup.

    He immediately slots into buffalos top 6. Like the other person mentioned, good montour replacement, he’s young and he’s free LOL. Worst case scenario he’s taken by seattle.

    That’s okay like I said he’s probably Seattle’s best choice from Buffalo come expansion time.

    Even if he’s an extra, he’s a cheap extra that you paid nothing for that can jump in whenever you need. Every team needs depth.

    I don’t think they’re stupid if they don’t do it either, I think they’d be smart to do it though.

    Lol that DISASTER just erased a 2-0 deficit and won 5-3. Better than the CALAMITY that is the Edmonton Oilers. Imagine losing 5-0 and only generating 17 shots on goal!!

    We already have Victor Mete, except our Victor Mete is named Jacob Bryson.

    We also have 2 LHD prospects who are close to NHL ready, and Dahlin.

    Don't see why we should dress 2 5'9 LHD

    Relax it was just a joke. Its not cool for you to come on Buffalo AGMs and mock the team so I thought I'd show you what that feels like.
