<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>OrganizedConfusion55</b></div><div>lmao. No one is giving you anything for Barrie. 3rd pairing dman making 5.5 mil with term. It will cost you to move him.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>datmonkey91</b></div><div>I never said Barrie was good, he's still an NHL dman just a sheltered role with pp time now. I agree that his contract is bad but you rarely see NHL calibure players being a cap dump now. Plus we've seen worse trades involving worse dmen before. I don't think there's a trade in recent memory where a team had to add value for another team to take an NHL player. Maybe Barrie won't get a 2nd, but a 3rd is more probable considering the Keith and Schmidt trades.</div></div>
Barrie is quite literally one of the best offensive defensemen in the league and has been for nearly a decade. Just because he's experiencing a down year doesn't change the fact that he's elite offensively.

He's not elite defensively, but everyone knows that already. If he was, he'd be getting paid $9M rather than $4.5M a season. At this rate he's NOT a cap dump.

Here's an interesting comp: John Klingberg. Barrie is having a better season by GF% Rel (he's +4.00 while Klingberg is an atrocious -9.97), he's better by xGF% Rel, SCF% Rel and HDCF% Rel too. His scoring rates are similar (1.48 P/60 in all situations vs 1.61 for Klingberg), while being much better historically. Their zone starts are similar (Klingberg starts are weighted towards the offensive zone slightly more than Barrie's) and both have faced Elites in similar proportions (33% for Barrie, 32.8% for Klingberg).

Why, then, is Klingberg expected to go for a King's ransom at the deadline and then sign for well in excess of Barrie's $4.5M, while Barrie is considered a cap dump by this site?

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Sabres_Insider</b></div><div>massive decline for Buffalo. Why would they consider this??</div></div> <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>datmonkey91</b></div><div>I was just editing to explain the trades if you wanna look at it. But to repeat, the Sabers aren't gonna look to further rebuild their team for much longer. Barrie helps out the RD as they fall thin there next year and will help develop the younger guys being a vetran. Giving what I'm sure is a lower end 2nd round pick shouldn't be much to ask for.</div></div> <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Leafsin4</b></div><div>Do not think Buffalo is in a position to take on these two guys, does not make much sense for them
Getting Term with toffoli and chariot likely demanding a lot of attention going to need to give up more in that trade</div></div> IMO the NHL is transitioning from knock-em-down defensemen to what the NHL to the turn of the last century "rover" defenseman.
Back then team played with 6 skaters and a goalie, the sixth skater being a rover who would jump into the play while the other two defensemen would hold their position.
One might say this style of defenseman started with Bobby Orr.
Onto the trade. Jokiharju is the only RHD signed next year, while Laaksonen appears to be ready to jump to the NHL that still leaves an open spot.
That second is next year and could be around the 50th to 62nd pick.
In the past 20 years Buffalo has drafted poorly in the second round with Compher, McCabe, and Asplund being the best.
With a 15% chance of getting a decent NHL player versus snatching a RHD who scored more pts than any defenseman in the NHL last year who is signed for two years beyond this season, I take the sure thing.
IMO he would be a perfect fit in the Granato system of encouraging the defense to "rove" into the offensive zone.

Turris has already cleared waivers and does not have to ever don a Sabre uniform.
<strong>If it only cost a late second to get Barrie, I make the deal.</strong>

As to the other trades, I think you did a great job probably need a little more going to MTL.
