Honestly, a Tallinder-Pysyk pairing is more valuable to me than giving ten games to a rookie who more-likely-than-not isn't gonna be NHL ready. Hank might be the best pure defensive player on the team with Rej gone.

I don't want Girgensons in that spot. Maybe if he's earned it later in the season, but for now he's best paired with Grigorenko should he make the team. However, if they're willing to move Vanek to RW to accommodate Foligno on the top line, they'd do the same for anyone else they want to try there.

Makes zero sense to keep Zadorov up long term when he can be the guy in London, you guys are over thinking things. He still needs time in juniors, also having three rookie D would be a recipe for disaster.

Just came here to ask what happened to Luke Adam>

I'm a newfie and I remember my brother playing in the provincial final against Luke Adam's team in Pee Wee, we had a guy on our team who seemed to be just as good but never developed past the CHL, never was drafted.

but Adam seemed to be developing well, drafted in the 2nd round and had a pretty awesome rookie season, got demoted last year and now he's on waivers, just seems weird to me how he could go from a solid rookie on a pretty good Sabres team to not even being able to make a weaker Sabres team mainly filled with prospects and younger players.

Did something happen like an injury, or did he just regress?

What are the chances he gets picked off of waivers?

No injuries, just a headcase.

Might get picked off waivers if someone thinks they can salvage him, the problem is he's slow as molasses and doesn't play a physical game. Only thing he is good at is shooting.

He has turned into the typical AHL/ECHL-material every team has.
He has the talent but he is neither using, nor building on it and nobody really knows why.

He registered a lot of points playing between Vanek and Pominville at the start of the 11/12 season. But after both cooled off a bit, Adam fell into a hole he could not climb out anymore and is still in there.

Of course Vanek can be put on RW to accomodate Girgs as the LW on that line. But that doesn't change the fact that Girgs is not a RW. Which is what I was responding to.

Luke Adam's career is probably going to turn out like Mark Mancari's. Big body, very good shooting skills, subpar skating, underwhelming use of size. He actually looked decent to me in the one preseason game where he played on the 4th line, but he's obviously never going to be a 4th line-type player and in this league I don't have faith he'll ever be a top 6 player.

I didn't see his big year in Portland but I noticed that when he was scoring like crazy at the beginning of 11-12, he was just finding open space and letting Vanek or Pominville get the puck to him or knocking in rebounds. Now in Rochester he's constantly carrying the puck and making terrible decisions. No look passes to no one, trying to skate through 3 guys instead of dumping, etc.

I think that's more of an exception than the norm, though. I'm not saying it wouldn't work out, but I'd probably bet against it in McBain's case.

He was drafted as a forward, then transitioned to defense and then moved back to forward. He Lindy Ruff'd it

last cut is now between Flynn, Larsson and Girgensons assuming Armia, Zadorov and Tropp start on the IR

With Sulzer off the roster they will need to send only one of them down.

They still may cut 2 more. They don't have to keep 14 forwards.

I believe he would have needed to be waived today, and is therefore on the team. Keep Larsson so you have a center and send Girgs back to develop more. That's how it should go down.

Agreed... no need to have Girgs up this year full time when further AHL seasoning would serve him well.

Wait, so the deadline is already over? There were a couple of conflicting posts on this before and I'm getting confused because of the timezones. Can someone please clarify this?

today was the last day for waivers so any player who needed to clear waivers had to be put on waivers by today or else they will could against the teams 23 man roster, so Porter, McCormick ect.. have made the Sabres, guys like Girgensons, Larsson and Flynn can still be assigned before the roster needs to be submited because they are waiver exempt.

There is a deadline of today to submit players on waivers of which Porter would have to go through.
