<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Tjm220</b></div><div>Nobody is going to have worse attendance numbers than Arizona next year. Even if they sell out that college rink, they’re also asking for 400 bucks a seat, to watch that team. It’s going to be embarrassing.
Even assuming you’re right, I still feel the way I do. It’s important that the Sabres bring in players that will make them competitive next season. They can still Weaponize cap space taking on expensive contracts that are short term for players that will still actually help the team. They don’t have a single goaltender under contract right now, so it’s the perfect opportunity to go out and get the right veteran to pair with Luukkonen and try to win games next year.</div></div>
For the record, I don't disagree with the sentiment that they need upgrades, but I believe the team i made is what they will mirror in the interim. They should be looking for upgrades, but I can see why theyd avoid short term expensive contracts. There's no point in using your cap to add 7 mil if the player takes a roster spot from someone who ironically might be better than him.
Personally, I think they should spend to add players they can get for good value. Mangiapane, Liljegren, Engvall, Comrie, Sturm, Allen etc. These guys are all projected to cost (both in assets and cap) less than what players with their underlying impacts would normally cost for one reason or another. But again, I cant see this happening after the year they had financially.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Tjm220</b></div><div>I wasn’t aware that the two of you know each other. I’m not 50 years old, but I have been watching hockey my entire life which is still over 36 years. You’ll learn a lot watching the game for that long, of course you also have to watch more than your favorite team to really get a solid knowledge base for how the game is played across the league, who the good up-and-coming players are that don’t get talked about, and which ones other people might not know about. Interactions between you and I have been pretty positive over the last couple years, Matthewslover and I have not gotten off on the right foot to say the least.</div></div> I do not know Matthewslover, I just wanted to add my penny and a half to the conversation.
He was rather harsh on you at first.
I guess you and I get along because I do as you do, watch other teams play and try to understand hockey.
I will actually listen to the opposite team broadcast to learn more about the Sabres and the other team.
I remember one time a member of my extended family said "all teams do that" in reference to the Sabres playing chippy.
So I asked do watch any games in which the Sabres do not play? The answer was no.
Then I asked, do watch the entire Sabre game or only when you hear some cheering? The answer was when they hear cheering.
So I said not only do not watch what other teams do, you do not even watch the Sabre, how would you know what other teams do.
I do not proclaim to know everything, if someone makes a good point which seems reasonable to me, I do not challenge it.
I like this app as I expect to learn from other posts and I learned not to argue with other people.
I make my point, if some one disagrees, I read, process and learn, but I seldom reply to carry on a discussion that I know will fall on deaf ears.
I never enter into a conversation in which someone has already posted what I believe, I do not need to read my own thoughts when others have expressed it.
But yes, our POV is often in lock step.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sabres89</b></div><div>Not sure if lindblom is worth it. He makes 3 million...</div></div> <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Tjm220</b></div><div>He’s at least no worse than Bjork...</div></div> Let's agree Bjork was the Sabres' 13th forward.
They are both 25 yo, drafted the same year 138th v 146th OA.
They are both RFA's at the end of 2023.
Bjork scored 0.4 goals/60 with an AVV of $1,600,000 Lindblom scored 0.7 goals/60 with an AVV of $3,000,000.
Bjork PK for 0:35 min/gm, Lindblom for 0:48 min/gm
Bjork hits 0.9/60, Lindblom 4.6/60 (that would rank third among the Sabre forwards last year, behind Hayden 10.5 and Girgensons 5.9 per 60)
IMO with nearly $40,000,000 of cap space, I would rather have Lindblom as my 13th forward than Bjork as Oskar had more goals than Anders had points.
