    GM for a Day: Rasmus Risolainen is the Key to a Successful Offseason

    For any attempt the Sabres use to improve their team in the offseason, Rasmus Ristolainen will likely be the key to making this happen. While the value of Ristolainen is controversial in the hockey world, there will still be interest from several teams for his services. However, I would not expect a 1 for 1 swap where Buffalo instantly acquires a proven top six forward, first round pick, or top prospect.

    Ex-Sabre Matt Moulson returns to Hershey on one-year AHL contract

    Matt Moulson accomplished his goal to play at least 1,000 professional hockey games and now he’ll turn his attention to winning his first championship. Moulson, who has not played a game in the NHL since he left the Buffalo Sabres in December 2017, signed a one-year AHL contract Friday with the Hershey Bears. Moulson, 36, was selected an AHL all-star this past season and totaled 22 goals with 41 points in 62 games with the Bears.
