    Little spot on what they think went wrong with Nylander. Basically danced around calling him lazy.

    Here's what the talking heads are saying about this trade. None of it is bad for Botterill or the Sabres:

    I love the last little fact that Bowman has traded away each one of his #1 picks from 2011-2017 now. How the hell do you do that and still have a job?

    To be fair, the Hawks have been up against the cap forever. With Toews, Kane, Seabrook and Keith taking up a ton. Most of those picks if I'm not mistaken were traded closer to the end of their ELC when they couldn't pay them anyways.

    In a vacuum the decision to trade Jokiharju isn’t completely ridiculous. Teams deal top prospects all the time in an effort to get better, and given the numbers the Blackhawks have on defense it makes sense that someone at the position would get moved.

    Trading him for Nylander, a player that is starting to border on being a bust, is what is so confusing.

    If you are an optimist, you might point to the Blackhawks’ success with Dylan Strome after he blossomed following a trade with the Arizona Coyotes. The problem with that comparison is that Strome had at least shown the potential to be an impact offensive player. Prior to the trade to Chicago he was a point-per-game player in the AHL and was starting to produce a little bit in his limited NHL action, especially at the end of the 2017-18 season

    Nylander to this point has done none of that.

    Over three years in the AHL he managed just 30 goals in 165 games and was only a .522 point-per-game player.

    Strome, on the other hand, scored 22 in only 50 games in his one full AHL season and doubled Nylander’s per-game point production.

    If you are supposed to be an offensive player and you don’t score at the lower level, it’s hard to expect much production at the highest level.

    This is great. And to the flip side, joki was listed as the 11th best D prospect with team affiliation. This could be a huge win for the sabres

    And is, sadly, the only Sabre on either list.

    Meh, I'd like to see the expanded list. At a point, he says the difference between say 15 and 30 on the list is negligible. like Jack Hughes is 38 on his forward list

    Don't get too excited, That guy has the Rangers Nils Lindqvuist 8 spots below Henri, Why Nils is even on that list is beyond me.
