    He's basically the definition of a big shutdown dman. Essentially exactly what dahlin needs as a d partner

    Not about being better than Makar, but he fits well with Dahlin and isn't taking a back seat to Johnson

    How this works ? Sabres will have 1OA 2021, 1OA 2022, 1OA 2023, 2OA 2023 ? So Sabres win lotto with 3,5% odds, then Vegas drops into bottom 10, which they won't be trying since not having the pick, and then Sabres win again on 5% at best. And 2OA would come from where ? Sabres own pick 2023?

    1. Buffalo and Vegas win the lottery next week.


    2. Vegas keeps their 2022 1st and Buffalo receives a 2023 1st instead as a result of the lottery.


    3. Buffalo and Vegas win the lottery again in 2023.


    Easy peasy.

    Except that's 3 lottery wins and we can only win 2. So buffalo would have to finish bottom 3 and Fantilli go second.

    1. "Teams cannot win the lottery more than twice in a five-year period. Wins in the lottery prior to 2022 will not be counted toward this total".

    https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-draft-lottery-changes-announced-for-2021/c-322838154



    2. If Vegas wins the lottery, it only counts as a lottery win for Vegas.

    Not Buffalo.

    Same rule applies to every other team.

    If you're wondering how this is possible, I explain in the thread.

    Otherwise, I have no idea what you're asking me.

    Interesting thing, if we finish in 32nd place, we don't "win" anything, because we didn't move up. So we could finish dead last for the next 5 years, and win every lottery and pick first every year.

    That would only happen if Vegas wins the lottery.

    In which case, you would jump 10 spots, draft 6th overall and give your 2023 1st round pick to Buffalo.

    The other two picks in the Jack Eichel trade would defer to 2024.



    It would be a miracle and it has little chance of happening.

    Much like my post involving the Habs from earlier today.
