Dude's had a really tough year, with the injury and then getting waived and traded like crazy...

Don't blame him for calling it for the year.

I don't think one Sabre fan was complaining about that.

That isnt the issue.....if Washington new about this before trading for him and if PHX knew about this before trading him to washington then this becomes a major issue that the league needs to address.

Had this been an injury and he didnt clear a physical then the trade is null and void.

This is what I tend to think.....but what part of the trade? Both Halak and Neuvirth have played games for their prospective new teams.

The decision was probably mutual. Buffalo doesn't really need or want him and Klesla would rather go back home. I assume he was included in the deal for salary or roster limit reasons.

Every team knows or has a team doctor look at reports first this is a major business sometimes they don't care they deal assets for pure cash get over it

I think you vastly overestimate how much Sabres fans care about this. We know this really has nothing to do with Buffalo because he was never going to play on the Sabres.

Sabres fans are thinking bigger picture at this point. Long term. We have to because the team sucks right now. So, this is just an unfortunate thing that happened and will be forgotten very qui- what were we talking about?

It's not like I really have a problem with not having him play because he's honestly hurting the Amerks more than the Sabres. Odds are he was never going to step foot on Buffalo ice. The plan in taking him in that trade I'm sure was to give Rochester a boost since losing McNabb that same day and/or for contract reasons. The Amerks are in the playoff race.

The part that burns me is when a guy is signed to a contract and doesn't honor it up to the end. I'm not trying to be mean but everyone knows what you sign up for in the NHL when you choose to play in this league. You run the risk of being traded and if your play suffers, you run the risk of being sent to the minors or simply not playing. He has a matter of months left and should have played it out, collected his money, and looked to the summer. As a player signed to a contract, you are obligated to show up and play. That's not just in the NHL but any hockey league or sports league for that matter. Like I said, he doesn't matter to the Sabres but the fact he bailed and essentially makes things harder for Rochester, while still under contract, is where I have a problem. Almost feels like he's giving up on his obligation because things didn't go his way this year. I do understand the injury part of it, but come on. It seems a bit selfish to me is all.

Don't blame him even though that's unfortunate for the Sabres.

Having him not report is only positive for the Sabres. He was a salary dump.

It's unfortunate for the Amerks though, because now they're short a good defenseman with McNabb gone. It's also pretty unfortunate that we gave the Caps a 3rd round pick for nothing.

A 3rd round pick for an AHL rental? Commitment.

If he would have left when he was employed by the Coyotes, the 'Yotes would have been able to trade for Erat earlier. IMO, McPhee was holding up the trade because he didn't want to take on Klesla's contract. The price the Coyotes paid might have been different.

Blames it on injury etc,going to play in Europe...The Sabres market isnt very attractive at the moment!

So what if the Sabres market isn't very attractive, it's called being a paid professional. Unless I am incorrect, the guy is making around 2.9 million to play hockey in the NHL and sometimes as you age, you might get put in the minors.

The Sabres deserve compensation so Washington kick in a 5/6th round pick and be done with it.

$600K, I'm glad that's not too much. Most of us who post here that's like 10/15 years worth of pay...not much

Sabres management may have known he wasn't going to report and made the trade anyway for numbers reasons. We'll probably never know.

Besides - he's at the end of his contract, coming off an injury and eying a return home to finish his career. Do the Sabres really want him "in the room" (At either the AHL or NHL levels) at this point? How many games are left? Will he make that much of a difference?

In saying this, however, I would say that if the Sabres didn't know this was going to happen then they probably do have a case for some kind of compensation but I wouldn't be expecting much.

If he's taking time off due to injury then I don't blame him. Best to take time off and get healthy.

People who are offended by this just aren't paying attention. He was only traded to balance out contracts. He isn't an asset. I'm sure Buffalo is very happy not to pay him. He gets to stop playing in the AHL and NHL clubs get to stop paying him one-way salary to do so. It's win-win.
