[Trade] Jonas Enroth to Dallas


Recommended Posts

What was the catch on this one? If you are going to give up something at this stage, you need to get something valuable in return... Lindback + 3rd don't feel like much at this point...

Both goalies in the trade are UFA at the end of the season and neither are likely to want to stick around in Buffalo next year so it's a free 3rd round pick for them.

Why do people keep acting like McDavid is going to Buffalo. You guys realize that even if Buffalo gets last place, they still only have a 20% chance of getting the first overall pick right?

It's 5x more likely that McDavid will NOT be a Saber at the draft

It is getting out of control and the NHL head office should step in and change the lottery format now for this draft to stop the entire league from looking more and more foolish.

They could get the votes from the BOG as everyone but the bottom three teams would likely be OK with it.

If they can punish teams for giving legal contracts years after the fact for a perceived advantage, they can change the rules after some teams have done everything they can to lose and hurt the integrity of the game.

At least the backdiving contracts were an attempt to win, and not essentially forfeit.

They did change the lottery, and it changes again next year too.

Besides, Buffalo isn't tanking with their hopes set on winning the lottery, they'd be tanking knowing that they are guaranteed Eichel at the very least.

It would be so tough to be a Sabres fan. Imagine CHASING the Oilers in the standings. So, today BUF has lost their monster Myers, gritty Stafford, picked up a selfish injured Kane, and traded one of their poor goalies away for an even worse goalie. I'm thinking McDavid may be dreading the draft lol "aww, damn, Buffalo?"

McDavid should just pay Bettman to get another team to win the draft lotto.

Yeah, but securing last place ensures that even if they lose McDavid, they walk away with Eichel as a consolation prize.

Both are fantastic prospects, and worth far more than whoever goes 3rd.
