A D who can skate and pass, I highly doubt this is just a way to protect Ullmark.

McCabe/Antipin/Ristolainen/Guhle and Beaulieu is a pretty mobile D corps so far

How so? You think they'll give a pick up to acquire Beaulieu just to trade for a better defenseman and expose Beaulieu? Or are you refering to a post-expansion draft deal? (That would obviously make more sense)

And you have 5 million dollars to do so...

You expose Bogosian, no questions asked. Even if Beauliue and Bogosian are the same player with the same faults, you still expose Bogosian at his contract over Beaulieu and his RFA status.

Is this the third defender we protect, thus leaving Bogo available?

Why would not exposing Bogo even be in question? The guy has too many injuries and is way overpaid. No to mention his talent is low. I wouldn't give anything for someone to take him, but for free you let him go.

yes. Bogo will not be taken. Ullmark or Falk likely in my opinion unless a deal is made to entice Vegas to take some salary from us.

Bingo.

Bogo's style of play and injury history just require too many ifs to pan out. IF he stays healthy...IF he meshes well with a partner...he COULD be a solid top 4 guy. And it's not even like you can fully rely on Bogo to anchor a 3rd pair and help a young player along, because he himself makes many of the brain farts one would expect out of a less seasoned player.

Bogo is like 5 million a year, Beaulieu is like 1 million. How is this even a serious question?

Wheres that RD coming from cause the UFA class is gabrabge. For anything else we will have to give up much more than a 3rd. If Bogo becomes competent again, we are likely OK on the right side if Antipin works out.

Hoping GMJB has a deal with Vegas done so the Sabres can keep Beaulieu and Bogosian.

Yep. And it may also humble him up a little if he's got continuing attitude issues.

But maybe it is, who knows

Yes, exposing him is possible, if we acquire another D in the next 33 minutes

Maybe something like Beaulieu to Vegas to select Moulson/Ennis?

I doubt Vegas makes that trade for a 3rd straight up.

Yes, you are correct. Falk is under contract for 2017-18 at $650,000. Fedun will be a UFA July 1st.

I have no problem with the player I just find it an odd acquisition considering all that has been preached this off-season. I think Housley can do wonders for him and it gives me hope that there's an actual plan in place to turn the culture of the team around if they're willing to bring in guys with issues.

It's a way of allowing us to NOT lose a forward, since no-one is touching Bogo's contract...
