    New Jersey will retain %50 of salary.

    He's the guy i've been saying Buffalo should go get.

    Simmonds isnt what he used to be. He has 24 points. 8+16

    Devils eat half his salary. Sabres pick goes to a 4th IF the Sabres make the playoffs AND Simmonds plays 10 or more games.

    Low risk, decent reward.

    The Sabres think they still have a shot at the play-offs?

    They're in a weird place this year. They're not really bad enough to justify selling, and they really don't have a lot to sell anyway. Bogosian's garbage, Okpo had a great game on Sun but that doesn't make up for 3 years of mediocrity, Skinner and Eichel have unmovable contracts, we need to find a way to keep Reinhardt, maybe Risto but he's been playing better, Dahlin is untouchable and everyone else is just kinda 'meh.'

    At the same time, they're really not good enough where one or two players at the deadline can put them over the top. I think what it comes down to is that they need to keep trying. You know the players don't want to throw in the towel yet and letting them play it out is probably the best thing for salvaging some morale.

    Sabres added 3rd liner Dominik Kahun from Pittsburgh for Sheary and Rodrigues.

    Wasn’t Sheary from Pittsburgh when we acquired him?

    Pitt probably wanted him back- he always seems to have good games against them. The rest of the time, not so much.

    Kahun is a young guy with over .5 ppg

    I'm happy with that for what they gave up.

    2 small guys gone who didn't fit. At least they did something.

    Beats the Darcy days of zero movement or reacquiring Bob Corkum.

    Re: Breaking: rumor: Wayne Simmonds to Sabres for a 5th???

    I liked both moves as neither of them cost a whole lot to acquire and it improves our top 9. Kahun is a solid 2/3 guy who can play anywhere on a line, ultimately I'd like him paired up with Reinhart and Vesey assuming we kick Skinner up to the top line with Jack and Olofsson. I mentioned Simmonds in offseason threads and while he's struggled in New Jersey this year I don't mind him as a 3rd line/second line PP guy. Yet if we lose him this offseason I wouldn't be heart broken as long as we add someone better than him to replace him.

    Rodriquez is the biggest guy in the actual trade.

    Kahun is easily the worst player in the trade.

    Sabres got fleeced.

    Sheary has to be ecstatic to be going back to playing next to either Crosby or Malkin.

    Exactly. This is a nice pick-up. As soon as I saw the Devils were shopping Simmonds I said to myself, boy he would be a perfect pick-up for the Sabres. He was scoring a lot right up through 2018 and is tough. Just what the Sabres need - a 2nd or, more likely, a 3rd liner that garners attention from opponents. I then said, no way the Buffalo Sabres would look his way. Getting him is a great move.

    Kahun is the worst? 27 points in 50 games? Sheary and ERod have 28 combined in 93 games

    Wrong. Rodriguez and Sheary suck. And the former tried to whine about his playing time. Let them go suck somewhere else. Just ejecting them from the team is a win, regardless of what the team got back.
