Matt Hackett 7.5 C Grade

Talent Analysis

Hackett has excellent size and combines that with solid positioning. He has a long way to go, but has shown a willingness to accept coaching and apply it to his on-ice performance.

Future

Hackett took over the starter's role and has improved his numbers. Played great in backup action for the Wild as well.

Johan Larsson 7.0 B Grade

Talent Analysis

Known as a hard-working, two-way player with a good eye for the game.

ISS: "Known as a very strong two-way player who has the ability to chip in offensively here and there...Larsson is a great team player who can do everything in every situation ..."

Future

Larsson is likely to play in North America this season, and could probably stand a year of AHL seasoning.



Larsson was dealt by the Minnesota Wild to the Buffalo Sabres at the 2013 NHL trade deadline in the deal that sent Jason Pominville to the Wild.

I love the return, especially Larsson.

That said, sad to see Pommer gone... Though, perhaps, it was time.

I love getting Larsson. Exactly the sort of player we should be targeting.

Hackett is a nice piece, but I'm less enthused there. We need goalie propects amd he's a decent one.

Very stable defensively, but has also shown more and more of offensive quality which he could develop even more. This makes his ceiling hard to predict; anywhere from great shut down 3C to 2C (or even 1C if everything pans out extremely well). NHL mature right away if needed.

Congratulations!
Bolded= Desperately need more forwards with those abilities (esp. the passing/2 way play)

Well, I hope you guys saw the Larsson videos I posted earlier.

You get an idea how he's a bit. Also, he did play injured in Houston at some point this season.

Thanks for posting those. I'm very excited as Buffalo desperately needs players who can cycle and help with puck possession, and it also needs a center who can play a checking role if necessary.

Yes he is but he hasn't shown that this season at least...

That's probably why Kuemper was the one the Wild kept.

Is there a chance Darcy had a hard-on for these guys since before they were drafted?

No Sabres deals official yet. Only confirmation is Johan Larsson and Matt Hackett coming to Buffalo for Pominville. Picks could be involved
