The Vanecek trade is interesting
The Meyers trade is a horrible overpayment

And we don’t have close to enough talent to make a playoff push
That’s just not happening

Maybe. If vanecek is just a guy, i agree. The second alone is probably an overpayment if hes just a guy. Upl has been, uh, uneven (yes i know he won player of the week, he also has been lit up several times), and we have portillo and levi too, but they are probably years away. Bjork does lots of stuff ok, but nothing particularly well, unless you wanna count pk, but this isnt a player id lose sleep over trading. So i guess if the sabres really thought vanecek could play 30 games and put up a .915 or so, maybe a late second (hint, not ours) and either bjork or upl? Thats probably a lot closer to the goalie market, teams dont give up firsts for goalies (i dont need the list, there arent many, and theres fewer cups that those goalies won), and our second is an early second until its not (sorry, i gotta see some success first).

I like the trade from the caps perspective as long as they have a competent backup. Fucale was great in one game but I don’t really trust him or Copley right now.

Yea, and if UPL is ready to start in the NHL like the poster said, I would keep the cheaper younger player, we don't need to win anyway.
