  1. Logan Stankoven. @Art Vandelay is up I think.
  2. You mean so the pick is NOT moved right? I mean, im ok with it moving to 2022. But condition was that it moves if top 5.
  3. Buffalo Protection List Rantanen Point Lowry Konecny Reinhart Thomas Dickenson Krug Slavin Spurgeon Gibson Sorry that I have been a bit AWOL for the past month or so folks, I have been adulting. I am in the process of catching up on signings, prospects, protection list, and diving into the draft. I hope to catch up on my egregiously dust covered inbox shortly. Huge congrats to our absolutely terrifying cup winner @pmalina. @Canuck Surfer wiped the floor with us without breaking a sweat: it takes a hell of a team to slay that multi headed monster.
  4. Yeah that team is in WAY better shape than some of the tire fires folks have inherited here! Full iceable roster with extras in the minors. Couple stars. Two goalies. Multiple recognizable prospects and recent 1sts. A bountiful crop for a good old fashioned gutting!
  5. Jason Robertson was my first pick in this league years ago. I had huge faith in him at the time, and am super happy to finally see him arrive in the league. With 13 points in 16 games Robertson now has the highest points per game of any rookie, playing on the 2nd line in Dallas. It really feels like a landmark for my team to be finally competing for a playoff spot right as my first draft picks when we took over the team arrive in the league.
  6. Buffalo would like to drop McKegg through waivers, and activate Hawryluk off of reserve. Thank you.
  7. Strongly support the changes. Not a big difference in the standings for me, but makes so much more sense when scouting and drafting. I can scout for players who will create shots and draw penalties. Less so for plus minus.
  8. I believe that in a normal season RFAs need to sign before Dec 1st to play that season. That date being 2 months into the season. Since the season started on Jan 13th this year, we would have to move the dates accordingly. I assume the equivalent date would mid March this year?
  9. BUFFALO SABRES WORLD JUNIORS RECAP Trevor Zegras USA 18 P 7 GP - GOLD Gold medal, Tournament MVP, most points by a US player in tournament history, over double the points of the next highest scorer on the tournament winning team. Just looked dominant in every game. There is nothing left for Trevor to prove outside of the NHL. Make me proud my little Zebra boy. Bobby Brink 6 P 7 GP -GOLD Brink did what he has done at every level and found ways to score points despite his size. The elite brain is still there, and the skating looked noticeably better than last year. He was no Zegras, but was an important part of that Gold win. Kasper Simontaival 7 P 7 GP - BRONZE Kasper exploded into his first WJ tournament on Finland’s crucial pillar of a first line. Despite his stats not being padded by any high scoring blow out games, Kasper channeled his immediate chemistry with Anton Lundell into a point per game tournament. Speed and vision lived up to expectations, with some defensive responsibility which surprised me. Rodion Amirov 6 P 7 GP Despite a disappointing tournament for Russia, Amirov lead the team in points as an all situations first liner beside Podkolzin. That transition and possession game is what we drafted him for; weaving into the zone and curling back to rag the puck on the PK. I was also pleasantly surprised by the power behind his shot. Looks ready to play against men in the KHL with his all around game. Alexander Holtz 3 P 5 GP Sweden never managed to put things together, with a disappointing first tournament for the otherwise electric Raymond-Holtz duo. Despite this, I was pleased with what I saw. Holtz lead the tournament in shots for as long as he was in it, and was a danger on every rush. With that shot volume and his cannon wrister, better puck luck will come.
  10. I forgot to react to this, but am really happy to welcome Matt Grzelcyk to the team. I think he is a really under rated defenseman in Boston's top 4 last year, and was happy to see him signed IRL for 4 x 3.7M. He has never put up fantasy numbers in line with his real on ice value, but looks like Boston plans to have him take over Krug's spot on PP1, as well as top pairing minutes. I am hopeful that the increased minutes and opportunity will result in a solid uptick in fppg.
  11. 2021 Buffalo Sabres Forwards Travis Konecny Brayden Point Mikko Rantanen Jonathan Drouin Jack Hughes Sam Reinhart Robert Thomas Adam Lowry Ilya Mikheyev Jason Dickinson Greg McGegg Jayce Hawryluk Defense Torey Krug Jaccob Slavin Jared Spurgeon Shayne Gostibehere Matt Roy Matt Grzelcyk Bradd Hunt Goaltenders John Gibson Elvis Merzlikins Top Prospects and Possible Callups Trevor Zegras Bobby Brink Alexander Holtz Ryan Poehling Grigory Denisenko Nicholas Robertson Evan Bouchard Jason Robertson Ryan Merkley Rodion Amirov Lassi Thomson The roster is slowly pulling itself out of our never-ending rebuild and into something that half resembles a team. Considering that we never won a lottery or picked higher than 8th, I am proud of the direction it is moving. For once we will be icing a full roster, with lines that resemble an NHL team, full of (mostly quite young) players that I find interesting. We have a great duo in net, a killer first line, Jack Hughes waiting for a breakout, buckets of recent 1sts waiting in the wings, and a still a couple 1sts in the upcoming draft. The roster still holds a snowball's chance in hell against some of the absolute juggernauts in this league, but I would feel comfortable icing it IRL and would be excited to cheer for it's future.
