      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

He has a good shot but that's about it. Hasn't been good offensively or defensively at the highest level. Played several games on the first PP unit too and didn't do much. He's still young though so who knows.

There was sure a lot of hype around Brennan earlier this year - point a game AHL defenseman - not much patience I suppose. 10 games in the NHL...and dumped for a 5th. Strange organization the Sabres are.

Tallon replaces Ellerby...

Last year he was a non-factor in the NHL. This year as well, but trading a high second round pick for a fifth round pick is just incredibly idiotic. The problem that Regier was facing is that if he tried to send Brennan back to Rochester in the AHL, then Brennan would have had to clear waivers. Since that wasn't going to happen, Regier dealt him to the Panthers. I have a hard time believing that out of 29 teams the best that Regier was able to get was a lower round draft pick. Regier needs to go. If you guys need an assistant GM, maybe Ted Black would be willing to give him to the Canucks for a large bag of pucks. Any takers?

Sorry SabresFan1 - of all the GMs in the NHL, probably the only guy I'd trust less with my team is Jay Feaster. Of all the stupid moves Regier has made, imo it was all topped off when he fired Ruff. It would take a magician to make a playoff team out of that roster - I thought that was a cheap, desperate move by Regier. I agree with you - his own resignation would have been a more appropriate outcome.

The Sabres are going nowhere fast, Regehr, Leopold and Sulzer are all UFAs - I'm not sure why they couldn't have just scratched Brennan as opposed to either waive or dump him (isn't Sulzer on IR?). As it stands he was picked up by Tallon, who already has as much young talent on the blueline as anyone...I find that interesting.
