The Buffalo Sabres have just put the entire National Hockey League on notice.
This morning, Sabres’ General Manager Tim Murray made his biggest move since taking the job in Buffalo.
Buffalo has acquired forward Evander Kane, defenseman Zach Bogosian, and unsigned goaltender Jason Kasdorf.
Winnipeg has acquired forward Drew Stafford, defenseman Tyler Myers, prospect Joel Armia, prospect Brendan Lemieux, and the lowest first-round pick that Buffalo owns in the 2015 NHL Draft.
Kane, 23 years old, has 222 points (109 goals, 113 assists) in 361 career games. He currently is out 4-6 months after undergoing shoulder surgery recently.
Bogosian, 24 years old, has 127 points (40 goals, 87 assists) in 393 career games.
Kasdorf, 22 years old, was drafted by the Jets in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft (6th round – 157th overall). He currently is playing with R.P.I. Kasdorf is 6’4, which fits the mold of goaltender that GM Tim Murray is said to be looking for
While the price seems high for the Buffalo Sabres, the return is just as impressive.
