So Krueger has made it public that he's looking for players with a better attitude, like Kerfoot? Or is this private info and just shared with your sources.

P.S. Did you pick the best Gaudreau trade yet?

The Sabres do not need 2 more bottom 6 players, how about we get an actual top 6 player for a change? Does not have to be a current roster player, a good prospect with the potential upside works.

Sabres have no 3rd round picks in โ€˜20 or โ€˜21. Dart board it again

The Leafs are not likely to bring back Tyson Barrie and frankly Rasmus Ristolainen is a better all-around player

Except for the fact that he's not, I agree.

As ^^^ has said, it's impossible this has been discussed.

But, other than the fact that it's impossible, it's not really a bad deal.

BINGO!

There is zero chance Kyle Dubas is at all interested in Rasmus Ristolainen.

On the surface, it doesn't really appear that way. I'd be curious to see what Risto does outside of Buffalo though. He may fare better away from there. It's not like Barrie excelled in Toronto, so he could end up being an upgrade for the Leafs anyway.

Lol ya right Pal. No GM would ever do this deal.

Also when are you announcing the Johnny Hockey winners? Asking for a friend.

Will they be announced before or after the Keith/Kane to LA trade or when the Leafs get eliminated?

Sticking to rumours my sources are hearing once again Malkin wants to be the man and can be heading to Chicago and is still contingent only if the Hawks were to trade both Kane snd Toews. The most likely outcome however is Malkin will run it back one last time next year with the Pens. After next season the Pens are rumoured to be in rebuild mode and will be looking to shave salary leading to Malkin being left unprotected in the expansion draft so Seattle can draft him and FINALLY FINALLY Malkin can be THE MAN !!!!

I prefer to differ. I believe Eks magic 8 ball is doing him well. A little to well if you ask me. Just look at these rumours heโ€™s blurting out.

Furthermore the eight ball is working, HE STILL HAS NOT ANNOUNCED the Johnny Hockey winners.

Poor Johnny. He's sitting at the Calgary airport just waiting to see which team he's being traded to. Come on Ek! Let the man move on with his life!

You want Johnson you get Kerfoot. Kerfoot should always keep his bags packed.

Remember last summer when you continually reported, per your Buffalo "sources", that the Sabres were preparing a monster RFA offer sheet?

I repeatedly explained that the Sabres didn't actually have much cap space. They had several of their own RFAs to sign, and maybe had room for a $4-5M player.

But days later you repeated the fake news story again. Sabres about to make big splash. Fake.

What did they actually do?

Spent $4.4M on their own RFAs McCabe and Larsson. Then had $4.5M to sign Marcus Johansson as a UFA. That's it. No more cap space. But maybe THIS time your Buffalo "sources" have it right...

only trade involving Risto with the leafs ended last summer, i would have taken Kadri for Risto and I would have retained some of Risto's salary for good measure. that would fixed the sabres 2nd line center problem and I would have had not problem with Risto playing in the division b/c Kadri is just as nasty as Risto can be.

Don't really see this trade being the one that makes the Sabres that much better, kinda looks like the ROR deal. I like Johnsson and Kerfoot but they aren't going to be tipping the scales for the Sabres. Kerfoot is not a 2nd line centre and Johnsson is a bit of a question mark.

Sabres need a legit 2nd line centre and some solid goaltending (which is partially luck based) and I think they'll be very good.
