I just get the feeling that the Sabres in whatever way they can, want to go with the youth in their organization with a few veterans sprinkled in. As I have said in another Sabres thread, I think the majority of the team's "Blue line" next year will involve in some capacity Tyler Myers, Jake McCabe, Rasmus Ristolainan, Mark Pysyk, Nikita Zadorov, Mike Weber, and maybe a veteran in the mold of a Brooks Orpik or someone signed via FA. I think when you look at the offense, I believe it will be centered around Cody Hodgson, Tyler Ennis, Marcus Foligno, Joel Armia, Chris Stewart (Until traded at deadline), Drew Stafford, Zemgus Girgensons, Sam Reinhart, and maybe a few FA's here and there.
Then in 2015, Murray's plan for the Sabres will take full shape. He will have 3 1st round picks, 2 2nd's, some decent cap space and then you will start to see the Sabres begin progressing forward.
In terms of Ehrhoff, I don't think Murray saw him as part of the future and decided to move on.
PSD's Sheldon Richardson!!!
