Make your predictions for the remainder of the season here

Just to spice up the final 30+ games, hereís a place to make some predictions. Letís try to keep it to the predictions, and not let it devolve into a debate over potential trades or complaints about management.

1) Will Buffalo ever hold a playoff spot from now until the end of the season? (In other words, will they be in the top-8, even if itís only for one day?)

2) Will the Sabres make the playoffs?

3) How many points will the Sabres finish the season with?

4) What place in the Eastern Conference will they finish?

5) Will Steve Montador be a Sabre at seasonís end? If so, will he have been re-signed already?

6) Will Tim Connolly be a Sabre at seasonís end?

7) Will Chris Butler be traded?

8) Will at least one of Craig Rivet, Rob Niedermayer or Mike Grier be traded? If so, which?

9) On what date will the Pegula sale be announced as completed?

10) Name three players you think Buffalo may acquire before the end of the season? If none, so state.

1) Will Buffalo ever hold a playoff spot from now until the end of the season? (In other words, will they be in the top-8, even if itís only for one day?)Yes, they will be tied for 8th for about one day.

2) Will the Sabres make the playoffs?
No.

88
4) What place in the Eastern Conference will they finish?
10th

Yes, he will be a Sabre, he won't resign before the end of the season but he will before July 1st.
6) Will Tim Connolly be a Sabre at seasonís end?
I think they will shop him, it depends on if there's a taker. I'll say that he will not be a Sabre.
7) Will Chris Butler be traded?
Yes.
8) Will at least one of Craig Rivet, Rob Niedermayer or Mike Grier be traded? If so, which?

1) No. If we were in 9th right now I would think differently, but we're 7-3 in our last 10 and I don't think we can continue that.

2) No, but I hope I'm wrong.

3) 82

4) 10th

5) I don't think so. If we can get a 2nd for him it's in the best interest of the team to trade him, and I think Regier will realize that.

6) No.

7) Hmm... yes.

8) Rivet will be traded for a 6th or a 7th. No one will want Nieds and Grier won't waive his NMC.

9) February 14th

10) Sam Gagner, Kyle Turris, Andrew Cogliano. I don't think they'll try to get anyone noteworthy until the offseason, though.

6) Will Tim Connolly be a Sabre at season’s end?
--> No

7) Will Chris Butler be traded?
--> Yes

8) Will at least one of Craig Rivet, Rob Niedermayer or Mike Grier be traded? If so, which?

1) Will Buffalo ever hold a playoff spot from now until the end of the season? (In other words, will they be in the top-8, even if it’s only for one day?) Yes

2) Will the Sabres make the playoffs? Yes, a la the Flyers last year. It will RIGHT down to the wire.

3) How many points will the Sabres finish the season with? 92

4) What place in the Eastern Conference will they finish? 8th

5) Will Steve Montador be a Sabre at season’s end? If so, will he have been re-signed already? Yes, and no he won't be signed but likely will be in the off season

6) Will Tim Connolly be a Sabre at season’s end? My heart says no, but my brain screams yes.

7) Will Chris Butler be traded? Yes

8) Will at least one of Craig Rivet, Rob Niedermayer or Mike Grier be traded? If so, which? None

9) On what date will the Pegula sale be announced as completed? 2nd week of Feb.

10) Name three players you think Buffalo may acquire before the end of the season? If none, so state. I really can't. I think that a move or two will be made just to placate the fans at the deadline, but I really am at a loss as to who it will be.
