LEON DRAISAITL, PATRICK KANE AND AUSTON MATTHEWS IN THE SIGHTS OF THE SABRES' GM

AUG 22, 2021  (14H31)      ALEXANDRE DESROSIERS
According to The Athletic's John Vogl, Buffalo Sabres General Manager Kevyn Adams would like to target some very big names on the free agent market between 2022 and 2025.

The main goal behind this target is to let the team's young players develop and have big roles, then pair them with star players.

"GM Kevyn Adams is clear. Once the Sabres' young players are mature enough, Adams will surround them with talented, established players. There are several big names expected to be free as air on the free agent market over the next four years, franchise players and future Hockey Hall of Famers. Buffalo is certainly not on their radar right now, but that could all change by the time their next contract comes around," said Vogl.

Players like Leon Draisaitl, Patrick Kane and Auston Matthews come to mind.

Quite a peculiar strategy. Will it work? That remains to be seen. By the way, let's not forget that defenseman Owen Power chose to return to Michigan to play for the Wolverines rather than join Buffalo for the upcoming season.
