Sabres acquire Eric Staal from Wild
In what feels like a move out of left field, Kevyn Adams has reportedly made his first trade as general manager of the Buffalo Sabres.
Last season with the Minnesota Wild, Staal tallied 47 points (19 goals, 28 assists) in 66 games.
The deal ends up being a one-for-one, which sees both teams taking on an expiring contract but the Buffalo Sabres will end up saving money after the trade is officially consummated.
Staal reportedly turned in his no-trade list yesterday and Buffalo was not on the list.
More to come on this story, as it develops.
