That's possibly part of the thought process. The rest is probably that most teams are cap strapped this year. They had the most available. He can be a rental at the deadline and bring the Sabres some nice returns, so fans will appreciate him.

Well apparently the WTF was loud enough for Hall to respond. And it was 8 Million dollars for 1 year....so if it doesn't work out...oh well I guess. I wouldn't be buying a jersey!

Sam Reinhart gets a one-year, 5.2M bridge deal. Doesn't bode well for teams looking to lock important guys up long term at a discount. Young players can ride out the flat cap and cash in later.

Krueger's doing rushes with Skinner on the 4th line and Tage Thompson on the top unit. :shock:

Is the new regime going to be handcuffed the whole time by Botterill's folly of giving Skinner 9M?

Girgensons got hurt and is out a while.

They've been crippled for a while by Botterill's folly of giving Selke/Conn Smythe/Stanley Cup winner Ryan O'Reilly away for almost literally nothing, so the Skinner contract is nothing compared to that.

Other huge factors working against them: Mittelstadt is looking more and more like a bust, Jokiharju might be a decent defender but still doesn't make up for the fact that Alex Nylander was a bad pick, and Dahlin is still young, but there are already some reservations about his development. They better hope like hell Cozens and Quinn are stars.
