    He’ll score 9.

    Originally said 12 but didn’t realize his career year of 14 goals last year.

    Nothing will change until a new owner takes over.

    this is on the GM as well. He knows he doesn't have the money to sign these guys long term but he hasn't made any real attempt to trade them.

    Everything seems to be in a holding pattern. I wonder how close they are to new owners getting on board or completely taking over. Have to wait a few more weeks, to see if things become clearer.

    "It’s been a real good summer for the Buffalo Sabres. Drafting Rasmus Dahlin; adding a goaltender in Carter Hutton who could be the answer in goal; picking up speedy Connor Sheary who needed a change of scenery; sending Ryan O’Reilly and his cap hit to the St. Louis Blues for a package that included a good prospect and a first-round pick; and now acquiring a goal scoring winger without giving up any of your three 2019 first rounders."

    :blush:

    honestly, had no idea sabres had 3 1st rounders in 2019

    At some point buffalo is going to get better. They have some good pieces. Just need to hope they have the depth in the organization to fill out the middle/bottom lines and defensive pairs.

    They hate each other but it really boiled over during the 2017 playoffs. Johansson has been very vocal about how embarrassing Kesler is.

    Right now, he is better then
    Scheifele (7)
    Seguin (9)
    Stamkos (11)
    Kuznetsov (12)

    And I can make an argument that he is better then MacKinnon (5) and Matthews (4)

    I don't think he should be top 5, but he is better then a bunch of guys ahead of him. He puts up similar offensive numbers while playing better defense then every single one of the players I listed.

    I think anywhere in that 6-8 range would be right.

    Matthews probably shouldn’t be at 4 yet. He’s good but he kinda disappeared against the Bruins a bit, maybe he was playing through some kind of an injury who knows

    hes a PPG center. There are quite a few players that meet that definition. Don't think he has earned that top 5 status yet.

    First list in awhile to acknowledge where Stamkos actually is. I think point is better than Stamkos and probably a few others on that list but the list is actually pretty solid.

    A friend whose a Blackhawks fan just told me a stat thats so unreal its hard to believe.

    During their 70 game season, Mikita was only on the ice for 7 Even Strength goals in the whole season. Just crazy

    And just found out Tavares got married in my hometown of Niagara on the Lake this weekend at the Peller winery.

    Couple years Folingo got married there and we got in the wedding and met Carrie Underwood.
