So my Sabres DID pull the trigger and get Hutton?  Great news!!!  I am going to the site to check now.  We now have Dahlin and Rasmus Ristolainen.  The best two young D men in the game IMO>  WE have Eichel, Reinhart, Nylander, Mistelstedt and a bunch of young talent.  I say we are going to improve light years this season and within 3 years will be the team to beat in the NHL.  Thanks for starting the thread Zeps.  We will have fun.


PS, after the World Cup is over I will go back to my Sabres logo.  But this year, being a realist, I will cheer on my second favorite team to win the Cup.  The Blues.  I picked them and the Caps  to meet in the finals.  I was wrong on the Blues but I picked the Caps to win it all when the brackets came out on Hockeyblogs.  I won.  I plan on a huge bounce back from the Blues and Sabres.

You wont believe this. The Sabres trade Ryan O'Reilly to the St Louis Blues and get back the mother lode in return.  First, 3 players.  Among them Bergland and Svabotcka where are both damn good and also two draft picks.  Af first and second rounder!!!!!!  Yes a first round next year and second the next year.  The Sabres rebuild is moving fast.  So now we have Eichel, Bergland Svabotcka, Dahin and Ristolainen and Reinhart, that could all be used on a power play.  It could be a scary unit. And a young one.

The Blues can have Chad Johnson.  I hope they plan to send him to the AHL t spare themselves the anguish of starting him when they chose to rest Allen on back to back nights and such?  Starting Johnson means you had best score 7 if you plan to win.  He sucks.  Good riddens to bad rubbish.  And the same for Lehner.  I can't remeber who had the misfortune of getting him.

Now my boys (Sabres) have a goalie.  Hutton.  And they have Dahlin to go with Ristolainen.  On the PP can you imagine them with Eichel?  Have fun stopping that. And the Blues, my second favorite are loaded too.  I think the Sabres won the O'Reilly trade.  And they did not let him walk,   So the 3 players was good as hell, but getting a number one and number two draft pick on top!!!  Unreal.  I just hope we do not finish last again and I would bet my last dollar we wont.  I expect us to unseat a team like Florida and make it in.  Going deep? Too soon.  Too young.  Guys like Eichel, Middelstedt, Reinhart, Dahlin, Nylander, and some of the other young additions will need time.  When we arrive though, look out.  My biggest concern is Houseley and if  he is the right guy.?  I would have fired him and begged Lindy Ruff to come back.  By the way, if you read this Zepcoda, do you know if Lindy is still with the Rangers?  Is he out of work?
