But Trotz would know if he is or not right? Trotz knows more about him than anyone so he can inform lou. Also lehner would be a ufa and only cost money as opposed to picks so I think that's their options, Howard no thanks maybe Jake allen

Avoid Allen like the (frank)ing plague. Dude is streaky as (frank) and implodes after a bad goal.

I’m not sold on Hutton. Dude is already 32 years old and hasn’t even played in 150 games. His numbers are decent, but those might (or likely are) a by product of playing on fairly solid teams.
Nor am I sold on Lehner. His numbers are decent, but the poor bastard is one concussion away from becoming a cauliflower.

Lehner is a tank... huge guy. Watch quite a few Sabres games last year. He was impressive.

He certainly can be impressive. It’s his injury history that worries me.

Other goalies I’d target (besides Grubauer) are Hutchison, Kinkaid, Korpisalo, Saros and (slim chance) Crawford.

Ideally I’d pick Grubauer or Saros or both. Nashville doesn’t have a 1st or a 2nd in this years draft, so might be they’d part from Saros for picks.

I have tunnel vision for grubauer and it makes sense and we have a guy that does stuff that makes sense. Also caps have to move him as they cant afford 3 goalies on roster and told him they would move him where he could be a starter not that it means anything. The fit is there and he seems like the best option we should know by this time tomorrow

Let's hope so. I still have a hard time wrapping my had around what has transpired in the last month. Lou, Snowtard fired, Doogie fired, Trotz hired, JT about to re-sign. Now about to get some players.

Robin Lehner is an interesting guy too.... solid goalie.
- jimmc7722


Purely anecdotal stuff here, but having watched a bunch of Sabres games over the years (wife's a Sabres' fan, so when she's watching hockey, that's what's on...although, not surprisingly, she hasn't been too into hockey the last two or three seasons), I'd pass on Lehner. His numbers aren't bad at all, and he even makes some great saves he shouldn't be able to make. But, almost without fail, he gives up back-breaker goals at the absolute worst times, in any given situation -- whether he's been worked hard that night or not...whether it's a high-scoring game or 0-0, etc. I've seen it enough where I just don't think that, even on a better team, he'd be a clutch goalie.

Schwein pointed out earlier that he's got injury issues. I believe he said he's one concussion away from being a head of lettuce. Haven't seen a whole lot of Lehner. Seen quite a bit of Grubauer. I'm down for him to come in. Then how about Lou bring in Brodeur as goalie coach. Not sure what his contract status is in St. Louis. Just throwing poop against the wall.

This would be nice. Rather give up one of the #1's for a dman. My hope is Lou trades one of the 1's and one of the 2's.

Lehner said that about himself?! Or did Schwein say that? If Lehner said it, his agent must've been like

Yeah he would be more or less saying "do not give me money".

I'm hoping for more of a "sure thing" in net then Grabauer or Lehner. Not sure if there's anyone out there available that fits that description but that's what I'm looking for. Trotz knows Grabauer and what he's capable of so if we pick him up I'm assuming it's with his reccomendation.

Need 2 defence and a goalie for sure….



Carlson will cost 6 mill ++++

Might have to move some dead weight on forward.... get the young cheap guys in.

I do think the Isles need to move some contracts if they hope to add Carlson. Just being in on players like Carlson is great. Two defensemen and a goalie would be great. They do not need to be all-star dmen especially with Trotz coaching now.

Carlson is gonna be $8M or more. If he signs for $6M either there was no market for him or his agent is huffing lead paint.
