Wild Card

Created by: corsiagainst
Initial Creation Date: Apr. 18, 2022
Published: Apr. 18, 2022
Team: 2022-23 Buffalo Sabres
Team Explanation
Give UPL another year in Roch (and create depth as injuries happen as we've seen this year). Plenty of flexibility. Don't trade any of the 1sts and continue to load up the prospects. Solidify the net. I think this team is competitive and pushes for a fringe wild card.

Giving Stecher $5M and having him on your top pair is not going to get you anywhere near the playoffs.

It's more about how strong the left side is. The D-pairs are interchangeable. The they need right shots and to spend money. Strecher played well at the worlds with Power when they won gold. Short deal so if he's bad they can look elsewhere to.

lol I mean they need to spend $ and need right shots. Strecher was an after thought for this post. Re-sign Colin Miller I could care less top 4 are Dahlin, Power Samulesson and Joki.

He played well with Power at the worlds; that was about as much thought as I put into him. There is not a lot of people Buffalo could sign as far as right shots go.

I wouldn't put him with Dahlin, but you are right about him and Power. Like to see how the year finishes and how Power and Joker finish the year before bringing him in. Might just need to go out and sign a Gubs and Lyubushkin.
