Is this assuming no trades made? Just asking, no snark intended. I could see Olofsson, Miller and even Anderson getting a decent return.

All good, and yeah this would be no trades made. I am fully anticipating lots of trades mainly because of the arrivals of quinn, jj, krebs, power somepoint throughout the season. I just personally didnt feel like making trades for all the guys because its just alot of moves. But i fully anticipate moves to be made

My biggest question for this forward group is what to do with skinner/mitts.
*if there is no trades from now to the start of the season next year* I think there lines are something like

Skinner/mitts cozens tuch
Asplund Tage olofsson
Jj Krebs Quinn
FA/hinostroza girgenson okposo

Those are 3 good lines. But no great line. Do package some young guys to go get someone real good or do you develop and someone is going to get limited playing time?

IDK if they trade Olofsson right now, Miller and depths pieces, definitely, Anderson and Tokarski maybe, both have been very good while seeing a lot of shots

I can see them extending Hagg, R2, Bryson, Pysyk, MAYBE one of Miller/Butcher not both, and Olofsson. That said, i'm probably wrong as their cap is going to be super low and i doubt they go to FA spending big bucks

I assume that the Sabres will trade players for draft picks before the TDL- I think they resign Olofsson if he's willing to resign for something like 4 x 5mil - I agree on Miller and Anderson but would add Hagg Hinostroza and Eakin - maybe we retain salary on Miller, if we came out the whole thing with a 2nd, 3 3rds and a 5th it would be pretty good.

Hagg has been good, but he’s definitely getting traded at the deadline they have a lot of options at LD. Miller will be traded too.

I think this team with proper development could do very well, Yes it seems they are missing that one great line. But Krebs is someone to watch, before the eichel trade I was a fan and I think we got a player with him. Same with tuch honestly. VGK never really seemed to give him proper minutes for the production he gave them. I think this team has some much better players than we think. Hopefully im right, we will see.

I think they certainly have a Lotta good pieces. That Krebs line could develop into a top line for sure. I think their floor is a solid 2nd line.
But for the immediate next year or 2. I don't know where mittstadt or skinner fit in.
I think tuch and cozens will play well together but idk who fills out the last spot

@asauer1122 I think that will be the line up for the last 8 or 9 games.
As to the trades:
Butcher to Pittsburgh, they could use LHD and need help with their PP
Hagg to NYI, they need LHD
Caggiula to WIN, they have the worse PK in the league, Drake is the reason Buffalo has one of the best PK's.
Hinostroza to any team looking for a quality character player who can play hockey.
Anderson any number of teams, the bidding may be high as he is cheap and playing really well.
Miller is having a career year who if he keeps this up, who knows what the return will be, to Colorado they have ONE RHD
I will let every one guess what will be the return.
After all last year we got a second for Hall and third for Montour (7pts in 13 games for FLA, just about what Miller has).
