Additions to the core for now and beyond

Created by: rktkt66
Team: 2022-23 Buffalo Sabres
Initial Creation Date: Jan. 15, 2023
Published: Feb. 18, 2023
Salary Cap Mode: Basic
Description
DETROIT-BUFFALO:
Why for Sabres: Portillo has reportedly said he won't sign with Buffalo and Sabres have Levi and UPL ahead of him on the depth chart.
Why for Wings: With minimal goaltending prospects, Portillo has a better shot of starting in Adirondack or backing up in Detroit. The lure of an original six team in the state where he's had college success adds appeal for signing with Detroit.

NASHVILLE-BUFFALO:
Why for Sabres: A 24-year old RHD with strong mobility and two-way game suited to Granato's system, who's an RFA this summer, Fabbro fits the Sabres need and timeline.
Why for Predators: With cap space an issue this summer and the Preds embarking on a retool that will reportedly favor re-signing Carrier over Fabbro, the swap for 24-year old LHD with mobility at less cap hit (50% retained by Buffalo) helps cap without losing depth on defense.

VANCOUVER-BUFFALO:
Why for Sabres: Adding an experienced scoring winger at age 25 with strong character and 2 years of term fits the current model Adams cites and provides scoring depth to ease the pressure on the rookies.
Why for Canucks: With cap issues and Beauvillier's addition, Boeser is the easier selloff over Garland on wing while gaining some prospects and draft capital for the looming rebuild.

I don't really see Boeser being a fit for this team. Adams is trying to build a fast team & he's slow.

Why would Detroit pay a 3rd for a player they can sign for nothing on the 15th of August?

He's also making a lot. We have olofsson to be a 5 million dollar sniper, if we are gonna add to the forwards, I would rather add speed, size, grit, two-way, guys that can help with chip and chase or God forbid dump and chase. We've seen what happens when teams take the middle away.

Detroit's not giving up a 3rd for Portillio. We can sign him for free come August 15th 2023 if he wants to remain in the Metro Detroit area.
