<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MisstheWhalers</b></div><div>Trouba would be a great add for the Sabres but I don't think he's leaving the Rangers and NY can't afford to lose him.

Some okay moves here but I think the Sabres really need a goalie more then anything and some defensively strong bottom sixers more then anything else, like a two-way 3rd line and a physical, wear you down, heavy forechecking 4th line would make a big difference for this team.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Hungry4Pucks</b></div><div>I would take Clifton on my team in a second. Love the way he plays. Trouba is not waiving his NMC to go to Buffalo, though. Would gladly work out a deal to send Kakko upstate.</div></div>

Thank you all for great feedback.
While I like all the trades other ACGM's inspired the fist two.

Mitts could be traded just to make space next year.
If he is traded he will be traded for a player (s) who would fill holes in the line up, i.e. RHD.
We can discuss the pro's and con's of each trade but that could last until the TDL, so I will skip it.

While cap is always an issue with adding a player with a cap as Truba, but Casey's new contract and Clifton's current nearly equal his Cap next year.
The cap goes up $4,000,000, another $6,500,000 will be added if Girgensons, Okposo and Robinson are not signed enough to offer Quinn and Peterka nearly $6,500,000 each.
Trouba comes off the following year and Skinner's contract expires when Kulich, Savoie and Rosen ELC END.

OF COURSE, the devil is in the detail, but cap space is not an issue for several years.
