The Buffalo Sabres have traded defenseman T.J. Brennan to the Florida Panthers in exchange for a fifth-round pick in this year's draft. The move came after Buffalo already began shuffling its roster by returning rookie center Mikhail Grigorenko to his team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Brennan had one goal in 10 games this season. He also had a goal in 11 games with Buffalo last season. Selected in the second round of the 2007 draft, Brennan spent much of his first three seasons in the Sabres farm system. The Sabres were forced to carry Brennan on their roster, because the team risked losing him for nothing by placing him on waivers. The Panthers gave up a draft pick they acquired in a trade with Los Angeles.

10 Reasons Why The Sabres Won’t Waive Jochen Hecht

I'm pretty confident that the Sabres would be happy to get, say, a 5th or 6th-round draft choice for Jochen Hecht on or before April 3rd.  Hey, John Scott was dealt for a 5th-rounder last season at the trade deadline, so who knows? To all of you Sabres fans who think such a return would be worthless, and can't understand why Buffalo would demote Brian Flynn or Marcus Foligno...

Those who work hard often get rewarded, and that is exactly what happened during the Boston Bruins-Florida Panthers game on Thursday night.  Early in the second period the Panthers were killing off a penalty and Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton missed a bad pass and the puck squirted out to center ice.  Panthers forward Shawn Matthias out-hustled Hamilton and dove for the loose...

Grigorenko’s Demotion

As a general rule it is a bad idea to rush your draft choices into the NHL.  This rule of thumb exists regardless of the question of hurting their development by rushing them too quickly into a role that they are not ready to succeed in.  A player can become an unrestricted free agent at age 27 or after seven NHL seasons in the current CBA.  A player who is rushed to the NHL at...

Goalie Quality Starts: Part One – Introducing a New Measure of Goalie Consistency

These days, there is more than enough chatter about Ryan Miller to go around.  Some people want him traded before this year’s deadline because they see him walking at the end of next year when he becomes a free agent, while others think that is the worst decision this team could possible make.  They feel like the team in front of him has been a flaming pile of dog-do and without...

Net Effect Week 8

  A bunch of situations to discuss this week, so let’s get right into it: Buffalo Sabres- Ryan Miller is dealing with a sinus infection, and although Buffalo doesn’t play again until Saturday, there’s a chance he may miss that game. Miller has lost four in a row (one was in a shootout where he came in the third period late in a tie game) but has yet to show flashes...

The Song remains the same

I can’t be the only one out here that really hates seeing the Sabres lose to the Ottawa Senators, am I?  Sure, I mean I hate when they lose to your Flyers, your Bruins, your Maple Leaves Leafs, etc.  But I really don’t like watching the Senators take 2 points from Buffalo, ever. See, here’s the thing, I know many of you still have bugs up ya about Carolina getting over...
