Buffalo Sabres Daily Dasherboard April 28, 2014


Well we now know that the St. Louis Blues have been eliminated from the playoffs, meaning the Buffalo Sabres will not be getting a first round pick from the Blues in return for Ryan Miller, we retain their second round pick in the 2014 draft.  I am not that heart broken over it, it was only the difference of about ten picks.  If your going to use the pick or trade it, it still has some marketability as a high second round pick.

Half the playoff series’ are over, and all other games are within one win of a team closing out the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
