To be honest the only way they could do a really good job is to start a real quarantine now. Lock everyone up for a few weeks then seal up the whole thing. But players won’t go for that

Spike in number of cases is like the plus/minus stat -- useless on its own.

If there's more testing, there will be more positive cases.

Long term goal is to get more cases, enough to get herd immunity.

Number of confirmed cases doesn't matter (except as a positive trend toward herd immunity); much more important is the number hospitalized and, of course, deaths.

Most importantly for them they have cap space again which hasn't been a liberty for them in quite some time. I count about $20M of space opening up for them on players aged 36 or older (plus Gagner).

And some interesting pieces like Mantha, Larkin, Bertuzzi, Fabbri, and a few others. I'd maybe even dare take them ahead of the Sabres if they can sort out their goaltending woes. Maybe they take a one-year flyer on Anderson or something to keep them competitive. Who knows.

One of the problems with buffalo is also goaltending.

They have some interesting pieces. I’d place buffalo above them.

On paper yes. But Detroit may surprise people a bit more next season.

I don't see it. They have a bottom tier prospect group and nothing special at the NHL level aside from a few guys.

Ev, Buffalo has an easy Top 10 prospect pool in my opinion. And they already have young talent on their team. They will be good soon. Very soon. Eichel and Dahlin are superstars. Reinhart, Jokiharju, Ristolainen, Cozens, Mittelstadt, Olofsson, Luukkonen, Johnson, Pilut. None of these players are either in their prime or arrived yet. Sure, they’ve had some bad drafting, but when you have as many picks as they’ve had, they’ve hit enough to be ready to explode.

I disagree with you here.

Hey Lagoon, while we are talking about Buffalo, they just fired their GM Botterill

Eichel strikes again?

Truly a weird time to axe their entire GM staff...the two assistant GMs were also let go along with Botterill.

Now they've replaced them all with former NHLer Kevyn Adams who was their Senior Vice President of Business Administration. "Senior Vice President" of "Business Administration". Laughing3

The only thing that would top this is if they hire Pierre.

I can't imagine Pierre working out well with the Pegulas.

I would hope it happens. Laughing3

Looks like Pegulas channeled their inner Melnyk and wanted to cut the hockey ops staff. 'Go leaner' I think was the term. Shocking that a few weeks back they had provided the vote of confidence in the GM (which might as well be a curse from now on), but that's what philosophical differences will do.

Yeah no kidding. Ppl poke fun at our expense with the sens but looking back at what the Sabres have gone through in truly astonishing in a bad way (don't think I'd trade the last 9 years with them at all). Goes to show all the money is still no alternative to hockey intelligence

Just occurred to me.....how about Randy Sexton for POHO with the Senators? This should open up things.

The blood-letting in Buffalo was substantial. Something like 30 people were let go including most of the scouting staff and even the IT head. But that was apparently a mistake, so they hired him back.

Edit: 22 fired in Buffalo, I think the 30 number included casualties in Rochester.
