Buffalo - Montreal (struggling - bad contracts)

To Buffalo: David Desharnais

To Montreal: Ville Leino (Buffalo retains 1M$ in salary for each remaining year of his contract to even salaries)

Both have 3 years left after this year...

We're not wasting retaining salary on Leino ... We will have to save the last one for Miller..

Otherwise...sure..why not.

Leino sucks.

We'll just use a Compliance Buy Out on Leino next year hopefully.

This makes zero sense from a Buffalo perspective.

Leino is garbage. If not for the contracts Milbury handed out with the Isles the Leino contract would rank as one of the worst in the history of the league.

Sure I hate leino but it's probably better that we just buy him out at the end of the year and clear the bad contracts from the books completely

They both suck right now so why not. But Buffalo won't retain salary just to get a similar player back.

Buffalo still has both CBOs. We'll use one on Leino and save our last salary retention for a trade that actually helps us. No point in this trade from a Sabres perspective.

Just buy him out. End story. Leino has not worked out at all.

I wouldn't touch Leino with a 10 foot pole!

Here's hoping that Nolan can get him going... Sabres need all the help they can get this year!

You think we don't realize that?

Still, the DD proposals need to stop or slow down. At this point, were better off hoping he regains form.

David Booth.

Every fan base does this, don't act as though Nucks fans don't try to dump their garbage too.

Taking it to the same salary and same years for the Habs... even then, I don't see much point... ? Desharnais can help Hamilton. Quite a lot, actually. Although I guess if you send Leino down he goes home and voids his contract? Hmm, maybe, then.
