Remember last off-season Darcy said the Buffalo Sabres would not "help" any teams in cap trouble....I believe he was talking about the Blackhawks then. So we had no chance of getting Bfyuglien, Versteeg, etc.

So unless his mind/philosophy has changed, players like Pavelski on teams in cap trouble won't be coming to buffalo....

I always thought and still do that this is a stupid way of looking at it from a GM's standpoint....Personally, I would look at it as poaching
That's simply not true. Lydman and Rivet are two players acquired because their respective teams were in cap trouble and had to move salary.
