WTF?!!!!!!

I'm ****ing speechless. Just when I think I'm getting used to the great new culture shock Pegula and Black have created, they pull the rug out from under me again.

Do we really want Ehroff? Sure, he'd help our defense, but at what price? He was offered an offer that was "well north" of Bieska's 5 year 23 million to stay with a cup finalist. So what would he be commanding? 5-6m?

I guess Richards' agent doesn't have to worry about Regier not being aggressive, that's for sure...

I don't really want him at $5m+, but acquiring his rights underlines even more that they're meaning business, so it's a good move whether he signs or not.

Nooooooooooooooo! If Ehrhoff wants $5M+, the Sabres would be not only seriously overpaying for what he brings but handicap their ability to outbid for Richards.



Hopefully, they talk to him and realize quickly what his demands are and say the same thing as the Isles and Canucks did: "Thanks but no thanks".

As long as the cap hit's around $4.5 million, I'll be happy with the signing. Git'r'done Terry and Darcy!

EDIT: If Ehrhoff gets signed, I think it's safe to say that Rej is as good as gone.

I think the media reported that he was offered the exact same deal as what Bieksa agreed to but, unlike Bieksa, was more interested in maxing out his value than sticking with a winning team. That spoke volumes IMO.

That's nearly impossible. He rejected Vancouver's offer which was supposedly the same deal Bieksa got ($4.6m).

No chance ehrhoff gets 4.5m, canucks offered him 4.6m over 5 years and he declined.

Ehrhoff is looking for 5m+

I wonder if this means Sekera and/or Morrisson are gone?

I have a hard time believing that they went into this not know what he was looking for...I also doubt they are seriously concerned about losing a 4th if it falls flat.

As mentioned, could it mean another defenseman is being moved?

But can they afford both - especially if Ehrhoff gets $5M+ and Richards even more?

If they sign both, wouldn't they have to buy out Kotalik and Morrisonn, as well as possibly deal Boyes in a salary dump?

Fascinating. Interested to find out what he wants in terms of $ and term. If they can sign him before Friday, most excellent.

Isn't this what everyone wanted, the Sabres to emulate the Flyers from a few years back? Identify players they want and go full-bore to acquire their rights, then blow them away with an offer?

Hmm, I like they're being aggressive and active, but I'd rather overpay Richards than Erhoff. And if Erhoff laughs at us as he did Long Island, does that send a bad message before Friday?

Especially knowing he was offered $4.6M from a good team, said no. Offered $5M+ (reportedly) from another team and said no.

The money situation is starting to scare me too. Unless we have some trades in place to clear up some cap, I wonder if we'll even have a legitimate shot at Richards... if Ehroff were to sign here.
