[Trade] Devils trade Wayne Simmonds to Sabres for conditional 2021 5th-round pick

Recommended Posts

If we had the cap space, Simmonds would have been a Canuck instead.  We're talking about a 5th round pick here folks.

I feel like he might be moving in another deal still.

I would have done a 2021 3rd or 4th if it meant they took baertschi back, but they obviously see it differently.

Is Buffalo going to flip him? Trying to figure out how this makes sense for them. I can’t see how Simmonds would help them make up enough ground to grab a Wild Card spot

Well, the team they're chasing just lost to a zamboni driver so you can't blame them for being a bit optimistic.

The Sabres are so far out. However, I’d LOVE for them to go on a role and make the playoffs, one point ahead of the Leafs because of that game against the Hurricanes :lol:

Yet they retained 50% salary, so we couldn't have made that work?

I think Canucks couldn't do this because they would've needed the Devils to take back salary, although Devils wouldn't take back anyone named Baertschi, Ericksson nor Sutter, which complicates the deal.

Dodged a bullet but also what the hell why what's happening why do this

Leadership.  Brings the intangibles that Buffalo seems to be missing.

Looks like the Devils did not want a cap dump in return.

Why on Earth is Buffalo buying? Botterill trying to save his job?

I'm praying for some sweet deal where we now pry Risto and Simmonds from Buff. 

 

Or there's something else we are missing with NJD, like a Wood or Severson... there's got to be a reason why NJ had a scout at the Boston game

So much for Juolevi for Simmonds, hey @FriedgeHNIC and @DhaliwalSports? :lol:

It was clear that idea also included NJ taking back a bad contract.  No one said a 1 for 1 deal.
