In Topic: Sabres hire Dan Bylsma as head coach

This seems like kind of a grey area. On one hand, he's technically still "under contract" with the pens and they're still paying him.. but on the other hand, they chose to move on from him. 
 
I don't think they should be eligible for compensation but I guess they got it on a technicality. Thoughts?


Definitely should not apply to any coach not currently serving any function for a team. What's to stop a team from hiring a guy long term just to inevitably get a draft pick out of it?

Missing out on McDavid and Babcock in the same offseason is rough. Over/Under on when they fire Bylsma?

In Topic: What's our draft position this year? And best defensemen available

He's not a defensemen but svechnikov intrigues me

 

I like him as well.  I think Holland will go with the "take the best player available" approach but if he is able to trade down AND get Svechnikov and Meloche then I'd consider that a great draft.

A smooth skating defenceman who can put up points, utilizing his strength behind his shot, and plays with an edge. Has very good awareness on the ice, and notices possible scoring chances before they happen. Very intelligent defensively and makes high percentage decisions in his own end. When at the top of his game, Nicolas Meloche can be a game-changing, physical two-way defenceman. (Curtis Joe, EP 2014)

 

Meloche sounds intriguing...

I don't see them letting go of Tarasenko but if Backes becomes available...
