The days of Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek of the early 2000′s are now a distant memory for Buffalo Sabres fans, many who have stayed faithful to their team through their struggles recently. At one point they were widely considered one of the best teams in the NHL, but never seemed to be able to put things together when it came time for the playoffs. With their teams core coming of age all at the same time the sabres were forced to dealoff some of their key pieces in order to sign big names like Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller.

So who are some names to really watch out for come March 5th or maybe even before? I have put together a list of guys who have a strong likelihood of switching teams and some to just keep an eye out for. (more…)
Reports have already begun circulating that Ray Shero plans on looking for a Top Six Winger to replace Pascal Dupuis as he will most likely be out the remainder of the season. While the rumor mill has been full of possible replacements; who is truly a good fit for the Penguins?
