I love how the offseason is now interesting with this team.  Some are big moves, others not so much, but Murray has definitely added some intrigue to the whole process.  Each year he has pulled together some deals you never would have expected.  We know what holes need to be filled with this team, now it's time to sit back and see how he goes about it this time.

The off-season will be very interesting for all teams.  I really think with expansion looming, we can see a significant spike in number of trades

 

Copying my post from the old thread:

 

Well it's officially the off-season!  Now it starts to get interesting.  The draft really has me intrigued, I am excited about attending it.  Especially with the expansion draft looming, it adds more to the thought process when it comes to trades.  A draft pick is protected from the expansion draft, so do you try to trade Ennis or Girgensons for more picks knowing they most likely wouldn't be protected?    Should be good, never a dull moment with GMTM!

What kind of trade value would Ennis have?  You'd be selling low for sure.

I expect Girgensons and Pysyk to be more likely parts to move because they actually have value.

Some guy in Finland -- I got this off another board -- is claiming there is a big trade in the works with Edmonton that includes Samson.

Most think he's just pulling it out of his donkey.  Eichel, ROR, Reinhart, and Risto ought to be our untouchables.

Pretty fluid draft boards after the top 3, so it could get crazy.

Just throwing some names out that most likely will not be protected in the expansion draft.  Ennis obviously wouldn't be a key piece in any deal, but could be a throw in.  I kind of feel that GMTM will try to use draft picks to make moves though.  But we've seen he's willing to deal, so anything in possible.

I thought that NHL trades after the deadline are allowed among teams that are out of the playoffs?

Though the Sabres will lose someone to Las Vegas in NHL expansion draft, the rules set up nicely for Buffalo.

Saw Tim Murray and Russ Brandon recently.  Murray loves the F word.  He seems fired up for the season though.  I haven't been this excited about the Sabres or hockey in 5 years!

@Buccigross

Foxboro (Mass) Summer Hockey Pro League kicks off tonight. Yes @BuffaloSabres fans, Jimmy Vesey is on Jack Eichel's team.


@BuffNewsVogl

As expected, the Sabres have announced a free NHL Draft Fan Fest in Canalside for the first round June 24.


Huge Deal!

@BuffaloSabres

1 of these prospects could be a Buffalo Sabre. We have the 8th overall pick. Baker's 8-10: http://bufsabres.co/QckTSn

Would you like to see Nylander or Sergachev in Blue & Gold? They land #6 & #7 in Baker's 30 http://bufsabres.co/K74ylE

The attached link is a column by WGR"s Mathew Coller speculating on trade scenarios for Bogosian and others. What I found appetizing is not only that there are so many trade possibilities but we have a GM itching to deal.

Yes. The one not yet upon us. We have the best overall talent of any Bills team this century.
