Entering the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, the Buffalo Sabres’ biggest needs were scoring wingers and goaltending. They left with five defensemen and one center. It’s not cause for alarm, but many are second-guessing general manager Jason Botterill’s master plan. Don’t. At least not yet. There’s no need to get antsy. Let’s not forget, the Sabres

The mob of credentialed reporters surrounded him four deep, hanging on his every word. The cameras–at least a dozen of them–jockeyed for position.

With the sun setting on a disappointing season for the Buffalo Sabres, nobody expected them to put up much of a fight on Saturday against the playoff-bound Nashville Predators.

The Feb. 11, 2015 trade, a few weeks before the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline, involved players, prospects and a first-round pick.
