To Buy Or Not To Buy: Breaking Down The Deadline Deals That Matter

The trade deadline has come and gone in 2015 and we’re left with a flurry of moves that mostly didn’t matter. There were buyers, there were sellers and then there was the Buffalo Sabres who went into full tank mode and sold off every halfway decent asset they had on their roster in hopes to land Conner McDavid. Don’t believe me? They sent away Chris Stewart, Michal Neuvirth...

Second Take with @BradleyGelber – NHL Trade Deadline Day

When I was younger the NHL trade deadline was one special day. I’d lay awake the night before anticipating every move I could see the Sabres making. I’d wake up the next morning all excited, run to my computer & spend every waking moment refreshing all of the blogs I followed while blaring WGR.

Avoid Trading For Chris Stewart At All Costs!
