Jets Should Sell High On Tyler Myers

Jets Should Sell High On Tyler Myers

Tyler Myers was one of the biggest pieces of the much-debated Winnipeg Jets/Buffalo Sabres trade in 2015. He’s been a reliable foot-soldier on the Jets blueline ever since. Now, however, it might be time for the Jets to trade him. Myers is not necessarily an ideal trade candidate.

Sabres’ inability to find steals in NHL Draft contributed to demise

BUFFALO – Nine years ago, the Sabres, whose knack for unearthing mid- and late-round draft gems helped them morph into a Stanley Cup contender earlier in the decade, found another undervalued youngster. When the Sabres selected Marcus Foligno in the fourth round, 104th overall, he was simply a talented kid with a familiar name.

2018 NHL Draft Profile: Ty Dellandrea the underrated center

The draft this year isn’t full of top end centers, but some people may be overlooking Ty Dellandrea So far we’ve focused on defensemen and wingers in these 2018 NHL Draft prospect profiles. The Buffalo Sabres are still pretty deep at center with Jack Eichel, Rasmus Asplund, Cliff Pu, Sean Malone, Casey Mittelstadt and at the moment Ryan O’Reilly. Even though that’s a position of strength at the moment, like defense, you can never have too much depth down the middle. It’s a critical position that is always in demand around the league. This draft isn’t full of centers, but Ty...
