if skinner does not sign by the end of the weekend, does he really want to be here?
- homiedclown



Why is skinner not waiting for the tampering period to see what offers are out there?


Which is just prior to July 1st. Not in may

That's not the point.

If you're Botts, you're making it very clear YOU don't want him, if you're waiting on Duchene.

Then neither of them sign.

You'd better have a legit plan B.

Not directed solely at you...

Let me get this straight,
-the Sabres scored 50 goals less than the average of the 6, 7, 8 seeds in the East
- Skinner scored 40 of them
- the postulated gap of $1m is deemed to be way too much to even consider
- 20 G Scorers are going for $4-$6m, to replace, not increase goal scoring will cost more, not less
- LW depth is Oloffson and his 8 games in NHL (I like what I saw too), Sheary who can't skate 10' without falling down...and, and ???

I fail to see the logic in letting him walk, like 40G scorer's are just lining up to play here (coaches too obviously)

it most certainly is

if he wants to be a fixture on this team long term, sign the damn contract


the longer he waits, it's a money thing and money alone


sign it and be a leader on this team for the rest of your career, or don't let the door hit you in your a$$ on your way out

It's money, term, and coach. Coach is hired, now they need to sit down and discuss his role.

It's not a simple process.

But you're saying to sign Duchene instead.

Maybe he likes it just fine in buffalo. but wants to explore a once in a lifetime experience of being whined and dined by nhl teams?

I'm not reading too much into this.
If he was my brother. Cousin client ect. :

Well, players wait for many years to get paid their "FMV" (which IMO, the $$$'s are too much anyway) when they reach the UFA stage.
This is likely his last opportunity to squeeze "the man" for that big contract.
He can still pull a Stamkos, shop his wares and still come home...by doing so he probably gets to both a) earn few more bucks due to pressure, b) minipulate the PR by saying he gave a hometown discount and look like a hero.

I don't think skinner is signing here, if he wanted to be a sabre long term he would have already made it happen

I am ready and prepared to move on


and really good teams have 2 really good centers


pens built down the middle and I think grabbing duchene is perfect to build down the middle


I think casey will do just fine as a winger on the top line and replace the points skinner put up last season, not goals but points


I also feel if they really want to get strong down the middle, sign hayes for the 3rd line and flank him with e-rod and a vet not named okposo, pommer or sobotka

and if a guy does not want to sign a 8 year, 9 mil per year deal, he does not want to be here

no other team is going to offer him 72 mil

he signs a deal now, it's for the right reasons, once we get to the end of june, ranger bound
