Buffalo Sabres /// New York Rangers

Post by boxofjoe » Mon Apr 15, 2019 11:25 pm

To New York:
LW Matthew Strome
RD Ryan Ellis (UFA rights)
Sabres 2027 3rd*

To Buffalo:
RD Charles-Alexis Legault
Sabres 2026 3rd

*The 2027 3rd will be returned to Buffalo is Ryan Ellis signs with New York

Sabres accept. We were in a minor cap-crunch for our depth lines next season, so sending Strome to a good home opens up about 2mil more to play with. The best player in the trade goes to New York, but Legault is an interesting RD with some upside that may be just what we would miss from Ellis offensively (who was walking this summer in any case). I was happy to offer a no-risk crack at Ellis for NYR with a potential 3rd upon signing.

Thank you Joel! Hope you get as much out of Strome as you got out of Asplund. We've got a good rapport by now.

Rangers accept, Strome replaces the outgoing Gettinger and a conditional 3rd for Ellis is a good price. Legault is a nice prospect but I don't see him making the top 4 over Andersson or Honka let alone Villeneuve or Ellis.
