His ACGM handle should be "Buffalo never saw a trade I liked".
I finally decided to block him as he is beyond unreasonable.
Or "Let me offer an absurd counter offer", check out this exchange:
https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/582134?post_id=3207636 and how he tried to deny his silly counter offer for Dahlin.
It is best to ignore his comments as he is the most irrational Sabre ACGM.

Here is the truth, Petry would be a great RHD for Buffalo.
He had more hits (140 v 121 Dahlin) and blocked shots (117 v 91 Dahlin) than any Buffalo defenseman. while his minus 11 would have been among the Sabre's best. Only Samuelsson -10, Butcher -10, Bryson -9, Hagg -9 and Jokiharju -8 were lower and none of them have Petry's offensive capabilities.
His 02:19 SHTOI/GM and 22:07 TOI/GM is a great indicator of his defensive talents as well.

<a href="/users/LIRIK" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><a href="/users/LIRIK" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@LIRIK</a></a> you are correct, Hughes will get more than a late first for Petry "(see Chiarot and Lehkonen trades)".
He may get it from Buffalo, but over the past two year's the Sabres have accumulated picks and not traded them away.

EDIT:
I forgot to add, as you both know he has family issues which impacted his game at the beginning of the season.
He seemed to have been able to put these issues aside as over his last 28 games he had 5 goals, 16 assists, 21 points and was +2.
Only a myopic fan would not want this RHD on his team.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Tjm220</b></div><div>I wasn’t aware that the two of you know each other. I’m not 50 years old, but I have been watching hockey my entire life which is still over 36 years. You’ll learn a lot watching the game for that long, of course you also have to watch more than your favorite team to really get a solid knowledge base for how the game is played across the league, who the good up-and-coming players are that don’t get talked about, and which ones other people might not know about. Interactions between you and I have been pretty positive over the last couple years, Matthewslover and I have not gotten off on the right foot to say the least.</div></div> I do not know Matthewslover, I just wanted to add my penny and a half to the conversation.
He was rather harsh on you at first.

I guess you and I get along because I do as you do, watch other teams play and try to understand hockey.
I will actually listen to the opposite team broadcast to learn more about the Sabres and the other team.

I remember one time a member of my extended family said "all teams do that" in reference to the Sabres playing chippy.
So I asked do watch any games in which the Sabres do not play? The answer was no.
Then I asked, do watch the entire Sabre game or only when you hear some cheering? The answer was when they hear cheering.
So I said not only do not watch what other teams do, you do not even watch the Sabre, how would you know what other teams do.

I do not proclaim to know everything, if someone makes a good point which seems reasonable to me, I do not challenge it.
I like this app as I expect to learn from other posts and I learned not to argue with other people.
I make my point, if some one disagrees, I read, process and learn, but I seldom reply to carry on a discussion that I know will fall on deaf ears.
I never enter into a conversation in which someone has already posted what I believe, I do not need to read my own thoughts when others have expressed it.

But yes, our POV is often in lock step.

Jeff has certainly played beyond my expectations this year, not with his goals but with intensity he brings to the game.
John is paid more than Jeff but his contract expires two year earlier, so it may be in Buffalo's interest to increase the cap the next three years, to reduce it when Quinn, Peterka etc. ELC's expire.
Buffalo needs a player who can win FO's, only O'Reilly had a higher FO% than John this past year and had 6 more goals and 18 more pts than Ryan.
With Olofsson as John's LW, Victor may score more goals than Jeff did this year and could reach 40.

Looking at your trade you move Mrázek with the Vegas pick to get Colorado's first.
So Mrázek + Vegas 1st ~ FLA 1st.
I am sure most Sabre fans would like this even less but Tavares + Mrázek for Skinner + FLA 2022 first + Vegas 2023 2nd
Buffalo gets 2 top 15 picks in this years draft and another player help them reach the floor.

<strong>Bottom line I would not laugh at this deal as it gives Buffalo a top center while only trading away my favorite Sabre LW of all time and first in a soft draft.</strong>
Now you can all lambast me.
