    Default Sabres acquire Jeff Skinner

    For Cliff Pu, a 2019 second pick, a third in 2020 and a 6th in 2020.


    Let me say first, I love this deal. Eichel has his scoring winger.

    Great deal for Buffalo. Skinner is in his final year of a relatively fair contract and will be a UFA next summer. He's certainly going to be trying to earn a big check. He also has a full no movement clause that he has rather noisily threatened to apply, so don't get too many ideas about moving him at the deadline. Skinner is perfectly capable of playing first line and first power play unit minutes and will be a streaky, somewhat frustrating scorer. Used in a prominent role he probably can be relied on for 25-30 goals. He'll play absolutely no defense and will turn the puck over a million times going one on five like a maniac, but he'll score goals.
