A free second round pick at the deadline for free? sign me up for that.

Hank still has the mobility and looked very good at the worlds, I don't think he is near as bad as Devils fans indicate.

Makes perfect sense.
This is the Sabres your talking about, we regularly take other teams throw aways and they fit in to our top spots.

How many #6/7 d-men do we need? By my count:

Tallinder/Sulzer/McBain. That's a shade under 6 million for 1 likely roster spot and two bench spots.

Maybe a move to stay at the cap floor for impending trade re: Miller/Vanek?
we can hope !

Until Hank accidentally breaks his arm several more times.

I like it. Tallinder was a great influence on Myers game. Maybe he'll have the same effect on multiple young D.

Wow, I love it, pretty much got him for nothing so not much risk and potentially high reward if he fixes Myers

I don't understand why people keep saying this. The Sabres really only have 6, maybe 7 NHL level defensemen. Myers, Ehrhoff, Tallinder, Weber, Pysyk, Sulzer and McBain. The rest are young guys who need to earn their time and/or need time in Rochester.

2013-2014 is about development. Getting Myers back on track to being a legit #1 defenseman is among the most important tasks for the organization. If Tallinder, a 6/7 defenseman for most other teams, helps get Myers back on track, it doesn't matter what pairing he's on.

This is a clear sign that the Sabres are far more concerned with the long-term than the short-term. As they should be.

Toni Lydman seems to be going better at the moment and is UFA. Tallinder only helps Myers if he is the Tallinder of 2009. People giving fist pumps over this move are hilarious.

and I wouldn't say a 3.3 million dollar contract is "cheap help" for Myers.

I'm OK with slowly developing the team. Rolston's got enough to do getting Myers back on track, developing Pysyk, and continuing Weber's rise. McNabb, McCabe, Ristolainen, and Zadarov developing elsewhere is a good idea. Less pressure on the youth, and Rolston's staff.

In a best-case scenario, by the time the defensemen in the system get to the team, Myers is the established #1 defenseman, Pysyk is established in the top 4, and Weber can be solidly slotted anywhere on the bottom two pairs. That takes a lot of pressure off the youth.
