What will Adam Pardy's role be in Buffalo?

In the midst of the Roy trade, Ott has been the main player on the receiving end in our spotlight. Ott and Roy were obviously the centerpieces of the trade, but how about the third player in the deal that is kind of overshadowed by the other two?

What will Pardy's role here be? How will we use him? Is anyone comfortable giving him an opportunity to play on the bottom-pairing up here on certain nights or do you moreso see him as Rochester material for this season?

He's been in the Western Conference for his whole career before now so many of us (myself included) probably aren't too familiar with him. He's got great size and he's dropped the mitts a few times before. One problem I foresee is finding him playing time, considering the abundance of defensemen we have, even with Scott as a forward. I don't see him getting to play over Weber or Sulzer and even McNabb.

Is "cap cow" a role? No? I dunno, I'm gonna reserve judgement until I get to see him play a few games in a Sabres jersey. A little research suggests that we should not expect the ever ellusive top 4 bruiser that we need.

Rochester until he proves he can significantly improve our top 6.

If he's borderline, he's too high of a cap hit and would only stand in the way of prospects who need the opportunity.

Too early. One or two of the dmen is a goner in a trade before the season.

I'm with you. I expect at least one guy to be moved...if not more.

I'm expecting the latter - both in terms of his ability and his likely destiny in Buffalo.

Going into the offseason, I suspect most of us expected Weber to be the most expendable - but with Ott's acquisition, it would seem that Weber has been given another chance to redeem himself and cement a spot in the top 7.....especially after Regier's mention of McNabb (whose play last year gave the Sabres what they wanted/needed from Weber) starting the year in Rochester.

As much as many may hate the idea of doing so, Sekera seems the most logical candidate to go if Regier has any hopes of landing a top 6 forward/center IMO.

He's certainly got an uphill battle to get into the top 7.

- Sulzer's chemistry with Ehrhoff and more cap friendly deal
- McNabb's burgeoning ability and more cap friendly deal
- Weber's relationship with Ott and his more cap friendly deal

I'm thinking he will be covering the third shift at Nick Tahoe's dishing out garbage plates while dreaming of scoring garbage goals

His cap hit shouldn't be a factor. They're $9-10 million under including Pardy.

#8 guy. If we are close to cap, he's off to minors. How on earth did he get a$2 million contract. Nuts

Rochester. That being said a defensmen or two could be apart of a trade so things could change.

Myers
Ehrhoff
Butters
Regehr
Sekera
Sulzer

Webber
Pardy
McNabb

Even Brennan has a future in the NHL IMO.


Say no one is moved, McNabb goes down. Then either Pardy or Webber is your 7th D and the other goes down. Of course if the cap room is there webber and pardy could stay as well.

I just don't see him making any significant impact on this team. I've been wrong before though.

While he held no value for the Sabres at the NHL level last season, Morrisonn did earn a lot of praise from Rolston for his positive attitude and mentoring of the younger Amerk defenders as someone with NHL experience.

It would not surprise me in the least if Regier and Rolston talked prior to the Ott-Roy trade and Regier agreed to take what appeared on the surface as a salary dump from Dallas in Pardy because he knew Morrisonn had already signed with a KHL team and wouldn't be back. Pardy could possibly be seen by Regier as a replacement to serve in the same capacity in Rochester as what Morrisonn did last year: NHL insurance but, more importantly, a veteran to help with the young defensemen in Rochester.
