I got the idea for the:
Bear trade from https://www.capfriendly.com/armchair-gm/team/3004097
Koskinen trade from https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/544867
Barrie trade from https://www.capfriendly.com/armchair-gm/team/3004442

Both Edmonton and Carolina would reject these deals, Buffalo would faint if the deals were offered.
Since I saw these trades I wanted to get affirmation that my thoughts were in line with other ACGM's.
Bear &gt; Pysyk
Barrie &gt; Miller
Koskinen &gt; Houser or Dell
All for only a fourth round pick.
Buffalo has sufficient cap space to take on both Barrie and Koskinen.
While neither Barrie nor Bear are #1 pairing defensemen Buffalo only has Jokiharju signed next year to play RHD with only Laaksonen in the pipe line.

Thank you all for contributing.
Yes the trades of Ritchie and Koskinen could be to any team.
I do not disagree with any of you comments.

LOL, did anyone follow the links?
The title says is all, "MY favorite trades"!
Bottom line, I made some comments, but you do not like the trades NP, then I can retract them all.

No NHL defenseman had more pts than Barrie last year, See above how others view this trade,
Nemeth could immediately be sent to Rochester or bought out so he never sees the Buffalo locker room. Chytil was a first round pick in 2017 and had 22 pts in 42 games last year.
Getting a second AND Zucker would be amazing.</strong> </div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Fjordy</b></div><div>gretzkyghosts

Guys, you can't even see Adams trying to develop this team. He absolutely does not chase the Cup, he is not in a hurry with the development of prospects, he does not trade our prospects and picks. Olofsson looks solid at RW, so I don't even understand what is the point of this deal, especially since Olofsson already has chemistry with this core. Mantha is also a good player, but he will not make this team better and he is no better than Olofsson, who by the way is progressing noticeably and began to play better at ES. Also, you are not trading #1 guy you picked last season who looks very promising. At the same time, I was not at all sold to Dumba, which will soon become UFA.</div></div> I think the rebuild is over.
The Sabres will be trying to make the playoffs next year.
Tuch, Power, Samuelsson, Laaksonen, Luukkonen, Subban, Quinn, and Krebs will replace Hinostroza, Hagg, Bryson, Miller, Anderson, Tokarski, Hayden, and Eakin respectively.
Hinostroza, Hagg and Miller are decent NHL players and will return decent picks at the TDL the 8 new players will give the team solid depth.
If Buffalo could sign a good RHD, it will be in the playoffs.
While they suffered through a 9 game stretch where they gave up 44 goals, the rest of the season has been very good 10-8-2 or 90 pts over 82 games.
With Mittelstadt and those 8 new players in the line up IMO will easily produce an additional 10 pts or 100 total pts and the playoffs.

No need to worry, Sakic would never offer that for Tuch.
Tuch &gt; Compher compare their careers to date games 255 goals 61 pts 139 v games 283 goals 58 pts 118
Vegas 2022 first &gt; Colorado 2023 first
Krebs Center 17th OA 2019 = Olausson LW 28th OA 2021
Vegas 2023 2nd minus Buffalo's 2023 third &lt; Helleson RD 47th OA 2019
Less than Eichel but darn close
Imagine if Colorado had offered 2 firsts, Krebs, Olausson, Helleson and Compher for Jack, there would be dancing in the streets.
Three prospects (center, LW, RHD), NHL RW who PK's and two first round picks.
No this trade would never happen.
If playing for the Sabres was not Tuch's life long dream I could see the Sabres accepting this offer.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Sabres_Insider</b></div><div>I think this team will do better than last year. You can call me crazy but I actually believe it. Granato is the obvious reason. But with Eichel, Reinhart, McCabe, Risto, and Ullmark, this team finished last in the league twice. Maybe now that the team is completely changed, and that the culture is changed, maybe this team is better</div></div> I think Granato could be a difference maker, I agree, it was time to make a change.
The Sabres finished the season 9-11-2 45% v 6-23-5 25% through the first 34 games.
I like the UFA's we signed.
I wanted Pysyk last year, getting Hinostroza was huge and Keeping Caggiula was a smart move.
I also like that there are not any first year players on the opening night roster, they were all sent to Rochester to grow and start in a winning atmosphere.
I am hoping butcher can produce in Buffalo as he did in NJ, Skinner will get 30 goals, Mittelstadt will reach 70 pts, Thompson will get 20 goals, and Cozens will look like a #1 center.

On the other hand.
I thought the 2017-'18 Sabres were going to be much better.
The 2016-'17 Sabres defense was terrible, Franson, Gorges, Bogosian, Falk, and Kulikov all played 45 games or more.
Two years later all but Bogosian and Kulikov are out of the NHL.
The following year we add Scandella, Beaulieu, to the defense while Pominville, Scandella, Wilson and Nolan all had Stanley Cup experience were also added.
The '16-'17 team did not have any secondary scoring Pominville and Pouliot added 16 and 13 goals respectively, not great but better than the previous year.
Let me add, the Hockey Writers predicted the Sabres would end their playoff drought, so I was not the only one excited about the changes.
So what happens the team goes from 78 pts to 62 and last place overall, 16 pts worse instead of 16 pts better.


I know I am getting long winded, I am excited about the future.
Power, Samuelsson, Bryson, Johnson, Laaksonen on defense, Quinn, Peterka, Rosen, Pekar, Murray, Weissbach up front and UPL, Levi and Portillo net minders.
But 7 years ago ESPN had 8 Sabre prospects ranked among the top 100 NHL prospects.
Reinhart was the highest rated at # 7 and McCabe was the last at 72nd.
I was super excited about the future, it looked really bright.
The other five were Possler (69th), Armia (60th), Compher (51st), Fasching (44th) Zadorov (21st), Grigorenko (17th)
NONE of them are on the team but all but Grigorenko, Possler and Fasching are in the NHL now.
Here is the complete list: https://www.reddit.com/r/hockey/comments/2dd2uj/espns_top_100_prospects_insider_only_list_in/
BTW Gaudreau was ranked 42nd.
