Lets not act like this guy is any big loss. Penny a dozen. We have WAY bigger issues than him.

We should've left Beady exposed and given Seattle a first-round pick next year to take him.

at the very least he's an nhl defenseman and he spent six years in the sabres system...it's a loss...how significant is to be determined, but it's a loss

Lots of players spend time in the system. I don't think that is a Gage to what a player is worth.

Took a break. You and a few others with your TDS ruined this place for a few months. Exciting time for Sabres hockey though

It's an expansion draft, something of value will be lost. They aren't gonna do buffalo a solid cause we suck. Borgen is replaceable, he's a stay at home defenseman who already broke his arm. The return in a trade for risto must be greater than the return would have been for borgen I would assume.

you mean the next 6 year contract for risto to stay was more important than borgen was to the franchise

So assuming we deal jack, Sam, and risto
Here we are currently

Skinner-?- Olofsson
Bjork-Cozens-Rusty
Asplund-Mitts-Tage
Z-Eakin-Okposo

Dahlin-Joker
Samuelsson-Miller
Bryson-?

Tumbleweed

The return on those trades has to be worthwhile, you can't screw this up, well you can, but if they do.....

Iโ€™m gonna be honest, nothing about Seattleโ€™s picks so far have impressed me and right now the Sabres are a better team going forward (opinion). After trades they may look like a better team however.

Hes unkillable, he will forever don the blue gold. Once retired he will take over for Marty on the broadcast and the instigators.

Counter point they took Gavin Beyreuther from CBJ so no you did not need to lose something of value in the expansion draft

Was their a side deal??
Because if you are giving them something to not take someone that's still losing something of significance.

Also what do you suggest they could have done not to lose borgen?
Since you seem to think they would take our trash if you were GM.
