Sabres offseason plans

Rate this Entry
Hello HockeyWorld, I am ScottQ32 with my 1st blog on SDHF! I just wanted to start with something I've had a lot of time to think about since my Sabres didn't make the playoffs. Anyway hope you enjoy my ideas for Sabres offseason plans!

June 26, 2015: With the 2nd and 21st we draft Eichel + Travis Konecny. You have probably heard enough about Eichel and here is some info about Konecny. A talented scoring forward that can play either as a center or on the wing; plays with the bite and intensity of a guy who is willing to do anything to win a game. Possesses dynamic skating ability that allows him to accelerate rapidly with each step, incredible hockey sense, electrifying puckhandling skills, and a lightning release on his shot; when you put this skillset together with hard-nosed determination, proactiveness in all three zones, and a physical willingness to grind and persevere, you get a game-changer who can be extremely difficult to play against.

June 27, 2015: Trade Chad Johnson for a either 3rd or 4th (Day before) Trade Cody Hodgson + Mike Weber for a (try for) 1st or a 2nd

July 1st, 2015: Signings, C Carl Soderberg (4 mill), D John Oduya (2.5 M) Peter Budaj (1.5 M) Re-sign NHL only, Pat Kaleta (1.75 M), Anders Lindback (3 M) Matt Ellis (two-way 500k) Release Andre Benoit, Andrej Meszaros, and Jerry D'Amigo.

October 2015: Our lineup should look something like this:
Kane- Eichel - Ennis
Moulson- Girgensons- Grigorenko
Foligno - Soderberg- Gionta
Deslauriers- McCormick - Kaleta
Gorges + Risto
Zadorov + Bogosian
Pysyk + Oduya
Extras Ruhwedel, Larsson, Ellis

    Great read....they just have to get a solid coach in place, and in a few years they could be a powerhouse.
