I think the answer is that they don't.

And I don't fault anyone for jumping off the ship. There are some primo pieces coming, though, as well as bragging rights for those who stuck around to see the corner turn.

I think pegula wants a franchise center and knows you can’t have a good team without one

Yes, we had Eichel. But Eichel never had a core of young players in place. He had ROR Kane Lehner sheary

Never a young core in place to grow together

You can have a good team, but probably not a championship team. The Sabres organization definitely lacks elite pieces. They have some nice ones coming though

Good column. Hank is NOT the Aaron Dell of bloggers. He is closer to the Ryan Miller or dare I say it, the Dominik Hasek of Hockeybuzz bloggers.

Send 1 of our 1st this year to the Stars for Jake Oettinger, kid is going to be a very good goalie and solves a big problem for us.

That's fine and I understand about Theodore, but he also has no clauses and it's a area they could deal from. If it cost more so be it, he is worth it.

From the last blog, in the midmorning timeframe.

We will see how the Vegas Cap situation plays out.
If they can "Kucherov" Eichel u till the playoffs, they don't have a Cap problem.

If they want Eichel to play before the Playoffs, they'll have a $7m Cap problem to deal with after they have sent down 3 you g guys currently up.

The Cap space IS THE asset they covet... again, IF they want Eichel back before the playoffs.
Your post was spot on this AM.

No Poltapov or Kisakov at the world juniors this year for Russia.

Should be on the team next year though, Russia went with an older roster this year
