    I should add, as I wrote the article and it was my source who told me, that Pilut is with the national team right now. They play games until sunday so pretty sure nothing will happen before monday and as usual no one will confirm it on record before the Sabres makes it official.

    So which to believe?
    The Sabres have agreed to a contract with him.
    It's down to three teams.
    Nothing is agreed yet until it's official on Monday.

    You can believe the article. It says that Pilut has an agreement with Buffalo and according to my source it's a done deal. The agent does not wanna confirm anything (as usual) and he says that it's down to three teams. My source says it's done and that it will be Buffalo for Pilut. The headline is: "Here is the NHL team that will sign HV71 top scorer"

    Trust my source :D

    Well that sucks! I was already working on my theme song for the kid:

    Broken Wings - Mr. Mister
    Top Gun Anthem - Harold Faltermeyer
    Jet Airliner - Steve Miller Band
    White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
    Flying - The Beatles

    I guess I'll have to stop there. Now what will I do?

    Oh, I agree - big, skilled guys who move well should be the focus for drafting and development. And I agree that depth augmentation can and should happen when there are smaller guys with either really high upside or who have achieved after their draft eligibility.

    :D

    This is really good news. Best SHL defenceman this year. Better than Dahlin. They may have different potential (even if nothing is for sure) but Pilut is the better D-man by now. And he is 22 years old.

    So much for the "the way they treated Antipin undermines them ever signing UFDA again" narrative.

    this is obvious evidence that the NHL has already awarded us the #1 overall pick... it couldn't be any more clear now

    With the way Larsson and Lehner have been playing and the lottery upcoming as well, hopefully Josefsson out and Pilut in is only the kick-off to the "exchange your used Swede for a new one"-weeks.

    A defenseman that can pass, on the Sabres? He'll have to fix that before he gets playing time here.

    We'll agree to disagree. IMO he was nowhere near as good as advertised.

    Did they outsource player personnel to Volvo? Work those trade-ins, boys, work them!

    According to BN (yeah, I know) Josefsson is headed to Sweden with a 4 year contract. At least that's what they said, take with grain of salt.

    So people are down on Antipin? I guess he didn't play the press box with enough class?

    If I was Pilut I would take a look at HFBoards before making a decision so he can get a feel for the misery hes signing up for, experience the self wallowing that nothing will ever be good enough and truely experience the losing culture that grips the Sabres team directly thru its HF fans.

    Josefson has signed with Djurgården for four years, according to the teams website. So yes, BN got it right this time. ;)

    Quick Poll: Who will mangle his name more, RJ, or Rayzor?

    Rayzor would actually do damage to the name.

    RJ would just call him the wrong one. ;) (Love the guy though!)

    If there weren't already a strong case to send Pouliot out of town there's one right here. Pouliot and Pilut on the same team would be such a mess for these guys.
