    Jimmy Vesey ?

    Last guy lost his rights to the Rangers. Now he may be on the block.

    No. He is the enemy now.


    And is terrible defensively.

    I'd take him as a replacement for Larsson and maybe use on the PP.

    Girgs for me, but same. Hes solid offensively and gets to dirty areas, which is fine for a third like guy. But hes awful defensively. Still..... I'd take a flyer on him if its cheap

    Well it happened. Vesey is a Sabre again for a 3rd.

    As a bottom 6 fwd, we could do worse.

    So who do we trade Larsson or Girgs to for Vesey to replace?

    Anyone dumb enough to take them.

    There was a rumor a few months back that Larsson was going to go play in Sweden or Russia. I haven’t heard anything concrete about it so it’s probably not true.

    Re: Jimmy Vesey ?

    Meh. He's a 3rd line player. Cullen is wrong about Vesey, but correct about the Sabres dire need for a real #2 center:

    Cullen on top-six forwards and a surplus of right-hand defenders:

    "There is still a gaping hole at second-line center. They have a whole lot of right-shot defenseman, too. You would think differently about this lineup if they move Rasmus Ristolainen."



    Cullen on Ristolainen:

    "If you're going to move Ristolainen, he is the most marketable piece to bring in a top-six forward. I don't think that had to necessarily happen on July 1st, but as you get closer to August and the start of training camp, I would get worried."



    Cullen on Jimmy Vesey:

    "When there was a bidding war on him, expectations became totally unreasonable. What he has done is expected. Can he play a second-line role? I think he can. Expecting more is unreasonable."



    Cullen on the Sabres' core:

    "If you've got the core pieces, you would think that gets you quite far. However, not finding third and fourth-line players shouldn't always keep you out of the playoffs."



    Cullen on the Florida Panthers and the Montreal Canadiens:

    "I don't look at Flroida and Montreal as hurdles you can't overcome. They have holes, too. Despite that, right now, I don't expect the Sabres to be a playoff team."
    https://wgr550.radio.com/articles/cu...us-ristolainen

    What Vesey may do is bump the 5-on-5 scoring from the bottom 2 lines. From that point of view, it was a decent acquisition, but to think he's anything more than that is a waste of time. Unfortunately for Sabres fans, you'll have to first see him play with Eichel due to their past relationship. Not sure he's a first line winger.

    He's in his last year of his contract.

    Sink or swim.

    Players should get a pro rated contract. If you sign for 5 million, you get a base of two and the rest is performance based. The five still counts against the cap even if you dont earn all 5.

    PA would never allow it, but it's an idea

    Yes. That's what spurred all the speculation the first time.
