Nice first move for Kevyn Adams! After a very painful offseason, I’ll take it (as a start). I’ve been pretty down in the dumps about the Sabres lately. Promoting someone with no front office experience to GM, then Firing half of the hockey ops staff and never replacing them, while talking about budgets and hearing rumors of tight internal budgets/cap doesn’t exactly inspire confidence about the new direction/regime. This trade is nothing to jump up and down over but it’s a nice start. Staal should at least be a competent 2C for the Sabres. It was a HUGE hole. MoJo is a nice player but he’s not a center. He’s a good left winger - one of the Sabres deeper positions. Finding a passable #2C is something Botterill couldn’t do in 3 years on the job (after creating the hole himself by trading the best 2C in the NHL for magic beans and crappy expensive vets).
