Buffalo Sabres Trade News: How Well The Sabres Did

6 of 6

Overall Grade = B

This trade deadline was about two things: clearing the roster of players that wouldn’t possibly resign, and dropping in the standings even further. Zeugmas Girgensons is determined to be out of the Buffalo Sabres lineup for the remainder of the season, so that currently leaves Cody Hodgson as the top line center.

They cleared out who needed to be and they moved themselves into a position to do worse in the standings. Anders Lindback and Chad Johnson will compete for the starting position for the remainder of the season, and that will most likely spell disaster due to the inconsistencies possessed by both players.

The Sabres had a good trade deadline this year and now it’s a race to the Draft.
