Here’s more about the two players that Buffalo acquired.

Steve Ott, a 29 year old center, scored 39 points (11 goals, 28 assists) in 74 games last season. He also recorded 156 penalty minutes. He is a very physical center, who is instantly expected to help boost the Sabres in the area of toughness.

Kevin Snow of the Buffalo Sabres passed along that Steve Ott took 1,011 faceoffs for DAL last season, winning 55.5% (561-450).

Adam Pardy, a 28 year old defenseman, scored 3 points (0 goals, 3 assists) in 36 games last season. Pardy is assumed to be solely a depth move for the Sabres organization.

Here is what Steve Ott had to say about the deal.

    You guys are fools to think this is a bad deal. All the injuries and lack of grit last year this is good. More D depth and someone that can take faceoffs and be physical and still score

    We also got Adam Pardy in the deal, yet another defensemen that we don’t need after the draft. We need scorers.

    All I can think of is Ott looking like a fool on 24/7 going on about how he’s #5 for face offs and then going on to lose the next one. Welcome to Buffalo can’t be worse than Roy and his diving.
