The trade is pretty good provided the Sabres are going that route.
The Sabres direction is to try and make the playoffs this season.
Hence the willingness to part with Keith Ballard to get Drury and a 3rd round pick to get Delmore.
The Sabres won't be making moves such as this that weaken the team in the short term, but make them a better team down the line.
Now if we get to the trade deadline and the Sabres have no prayer at making the postseason, then you'll see Zhitnik getting shopped.
As of today there is no way he'll go, especially in a deal that makes them weaker this season, but stronger down the road.
