    I don't understand all these Risto trades to NJD. Devils have enough cap tied up at RHD. Can't see CBJ trading two first rounders for one year of Reichel. CBJ could just sign a UFA and keep Foudy and the pick. The Minni trade...could be a deal.

    Buffalo has all these draft picks with no scouting staff. I was listening to Steve dangle podcast a little while back and he said most teams have around 20 scouts. Buffalo has 6 bc the president fired a bunch of them. Idk how u can make decent picks with 6 scouts in your whole system. This franchise needs new management.

    I think that's probably an ownership decision wrt the scouting staff.

    Minnesota trade would be a no. The columbus trade looks good though, id take that.

    It’s not a cap issue.
    It’s a style of play and quality of play issue.

    There was one rumor by Sabres beat reporter.
    No reason to think Devils would give up any assets for Risto (including Pasic)

    That's my ideal Reinhart trade. Laine and Reinhart would be to consistent scores. Saber would get a goalie and young player that can play any forward position with a pick in a better draft year.

    Columbus ain’t giving up a 22 1st for Reinhart. You can have one of the late 1sts this year or no thanks.
