The Bad – Rolling with three goaltenders
While we all knew this was going to happen, it still belongs in The Bad Category simply because it comes at the expense of a certain forward. Brandon Biro showed a lot of grit and he played well during camp and the preseason. Therefore, it runs the risk of losing such a talented forward to another organization if he’s claimed by 2 p.m Sunday.
This came on the heels of Eric Comrie showing immense improvement and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen showing zero improvement. However, the latter is a player the Buffalo Sabres would love to see forge a tandem with Levi, and there is no denying Luukkonen’s upside.
Or, if the right offer comes along, the Sabres could always trade Luukkonen elsewhere and probably get something decent in return. This is judging from the fact general manager Kevyn Adams got a third-round pick for Erik Portillo, and a fourth-rounder for the injury-prone Ilya Lyubushkin.
