The Sabres traded Montador's negotiating rights to the Blackhawks. While I like the Hawks, they are not Buffalo and I will miss my boy. :(
Free Agency starts tomorrow.. who will end up where? There has already been a lot of action in advance, which seems kind of odd. Usually teams kind of hold off on the trading and whatnot until they can sign some free agents.. but everybody seems keen to keep moving. Interesting stuff.
The Sabres are definitely buyers. There are rumors that they will try for Brad Richards. He's a stud, and could definitely help us at center, where we are already weak (and please for the love of anything, DON'T re-sign Connolly) and will be missing another piece without Timmay. But Richards is a bit expensive.. though maybe they can talk him down a bit...
Tomorrow will tell.
