Panarin and Duchene were well out of reach and a lot of money was thrown around leaving the Sabres to add Jimmy Vesey and depth on the first day of NHL free agency
Marcus Johansson and Ryan Dzingel could do wonders for this forward group.
Expected to be 2yr./$9M
Looking at the forwards presently under contract with the Sabres and where they slot in on the depth chart
After a 10-minute teleconference we were still left to wonder where he'll play
Adding yet another right-handed defenseman adds yet another layer of intrigue to rumors of defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen being on the move
@boosbuzzsabres As written on many occasions last season, the Sabres fourth line did their job and more than once were the best line out of the forward group. Sure, they didn't do a lot of scoring but Phil Housley didn't seem to want that from them. What he wanted from the likes of Zemgus Girgens...
Buffalo has enough room to sign their remaining RFA's and still be under the cap, but there is a logjam of players looking for NHL spots.
The d-camp injury required surgery and recovery time might take until October.
