Buffalo Sabres Trade News: How Well The Sabres Did

1 of 6

The trade deadline has now passed for the NHL and the Buffalo Sabres made moves that shipped four players out of Buffalo, and had primary returns of draft picks.

The players shipped out were Chris Stewart, Torrey Mitchell, Michal Neuvirth, and Brian Flynn.

Needless to say, General Manager Tim Murray seemed relatively pleased with the results of his trades today, and despite his blatant disregard for a desire to finish in last place, he has helped the Sabres much more to do that.

Overall, the Sabres did ok with their acquisitions today, but let’s go through them one at a time and examine the losses and gains of each. Having every single one of these players being free agents at the conclusion of the season makes these returns quite interesting.
