Sabres fans are so delusional about this team.
Vanek is an elite scorer, and has been since the lockout - look at his goal totals. That's elite. Pominville has 82 points in his last 88 games. He isn't a PPG player, but he's one of the best two way players in the league. Stafford is a 2nd liner at best, and Leino is probably a 3rd liner at best. While Foligno isn't going to be a great scorer, everything else that he brings makes him a very good player. Also, Armia has elite talent. He hasn't shown it in the NHL yet, but he has the potential to be a GREAT player in the league.
I'm guessing Buffalo resigns all 3. Regehr and Leopold will be off the books after this year (7 million - replaced by Pysyk and McNabb if they're ready), as will Steve Ott (3 million). Also - just guessing - I think we'll trade Drew Stafford by then.
