“We’re looking to add,” Kekalainen said last night. “We’ve put into play one of our first-round picks, the one we have from the Los Angeles Kings. We’ve offered that up to get some help for our team.
“We’re not doing rentals (veteran players with expiring contracts). We’re not going to do something that helps us this spring and then that’s it. We’re only going to do things that help us today and long-term, and we’re going to stick to that plan.
“If something good materializes with that philosophy, well then we’ve got a deal. If it doesn’t, this club has shown it can be very competitive. So let’s see where it goes.”
Buffalo and Calgary are selling, and the Sabres have two players who could interest the Blue Jackets.
Right wingers Jason Pominville, 30, and Drew Stafford, 27, could be on the move as the Sabres retool after a handful of disappointing seasons
Some of these teams/reporters are stupid. Gaborik is twice the player the other two guys are. Pominville is a 1 year younger than Gaborik and both players will be group IIIs in 2014. Stafford is Dubinsky II. Both players signed similar contracts in 2011 and haven't come close to being worthy of those contracts.
Gaborik will score 40 goals next season in a contract year.
