The Buffalo Sabres have had quite the busy offseason so far and it is believed that it’s only going to get busier.
According to team insider Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News, the Sabres are not done shopping on the trade market. He points out the Sabres have around $6.6-million in salary-cap space and specualted that they could go after scoring help.
“With the free-agent market mostly picked over, the Sabres could theoretically trade from their defense corps to add a top-six forward, specifically a second-line center.”
The Sabres are holding on to a lot of depth on the back end and have the necessary arsenal to make another move. Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen is a frequent topic of trade chatter this off-season and could finally be out the door later on this summer.
The Sabres have been quite busy, trading for Henri Jokiharju and Jimmy Vesey and signing top free agent Marcus Johansson.
However, it isn’t enough for GM Jason Botterhill who we will have to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
