Buffalo Sabres /// Detroit Red Wings

To Detroit:
Buf 2029 1st
Buf 2030 1st
C Michel Bolduc
RD Charles-Alexis Legault

To Buffalo:
C Joe Veleno

Sabres accept. I lost Eichel and he didn't sign with the Canes, which means I had a big ol' vacancy at 1C. I missed on all my FA targets, too. Veleno might be the best 1C out there with term (7 years!) so I don't feel awful about sending two 1sts - I've been trading those for lower picks lately anyways. Bolduc and Legault sting a little bit, but in reality for me they are merely depth players. The 1sts are definitely harder to give up.

Thanks Ben!

Wings accept. We felt like trading Veleno was a necessity to get our rebuild underway. We still believe that value-wise we got the short end of the stick but in reality - that's always the case when trading a player like Joe. Bolduc brings much needed C depth prospect-wise, and Legault brings much needed support for our D going forward.
