The upcoming NHL season might be in question, but that doesn't mean teams stop looking to improve their rosters. Buffalo needs some help on the offensive end and the latest rumor from Bleacher Report could have the Sabres finding the help they need.
Jake Ware has suggested that Buffalo looks into adding Paul Stastny of Colorado before the start of training camp. The 26-year-old is a talented offensive player that has struggled a bit the last two years and a change of scenery could resurrect his career.
The former second round draft pick scored over 70 points in three of his first four years in the league and a move to Buffalo would team the youngster with Cody Hodgson and give the Sabres a solid first-line.
The deal has Tyler Ennis and a future draft pick heading to the Avalanche, giving Colorado a 22-year-old winger with plenty of upside and a pick they could use to add even more talent in next year's draft, making this a good deal for both teams.
The NHL needs to get a labor agreement in place or risk losing the already small market of fans they have. A lockout would set the sport back several years and possibly the loss of a franchise or two if money doesn't start coming in the doors.
