The Sabres can afford a deal like that so good for them, hopefully RoR helps them turn it around. Buffalo is looking good. I think that deal for Saad is going to leave Columbus in some cap trouble after they have to sign some of these other players. I don't know off of the top of my head, but some guys have to be due for contracts and they already had trouble with Atkinson.


I think Johansen is due for another deal soon isn't he? Although this addition of Saad should make him happy.

He is scoring depth on this Devils team. I just don't get why we would chance it. If Thompson, Boucher et al. fizzles, we could be looking at less goals than last year. Sure we are 'giving youth a shot' (whatever that means) but this is the NHL, and it's likely a bunch of these kids are not going to work out.

However, I agree that we will probably add someone else, and my original comment was consciously impatient for sure.


Bernier was a Deboer favorite. He's gone. New regime and new style and system with roster preferences lead to new personnel. Unfortunately Gionta is still here but much like Zubrus probably only have to stomach that one more season if even that long.

Looks like we're going to be at or near the cap floor this year. I don't mind it since outside of Frolik we shouldn't have spent big bucks on any of these guys signed today. Sets us up nice to acquire salary via trades and free agency next July.


Key is to maintain flexibility for next two off seasons. Have Elias and Zubrus coming off the books, but have to factor in raises for some of the guys.

If we're going to be close to the floor we could take a chance on Semin and Boyes for one-year deals.


Boyes is not an NHL quality forward anymore. You've been beating his drum for years but he's far worse than ever now. Poor skater, poor off the puck, poor defensively, kind of just a guy who comes in and let's the others do the dirty work.

Panthers also took on remaining portion of Marc Savards contract.
