Tired: Jason Botterill losing a trade with the Blues
Wired: Jason Botterill losing a trade with the Blues that he wasn’t even technically involved in
So Winnipeg, Vegas, St. Louis and Washington all traded for a defenseman today and the Sabres still have all of their D. Is this where we are told Botterill is trying and it’s hard to make a trade?
Man, Montreal getting a second for Scandella from St . Louis is a baaaaad look for Botterill after he only got a fourth for him a few short weeks ago. Ouch. #Sabres
Lmao Botterill trades Scandella for a 4th round pic that he uses to get big locker room guy Frolik (1 goal since getting here) and then Montreal trades Scandella away almost 2 months later for a 2nd round pick. Fuck You Botterill. #Sabres50 #Sabres
Darren Dreger on TSN1040 says that Buffalo Sabres GM Jason Botterill is trying hard to make a move but can’t find a trade partner. #Sabres50
Defensemen are going for premiums, Marco Scandella just went for a second after Buffalo accepted a 4th for him a month ago, and Botterill is just watching.
How can the Pegulas keep this man next season? Like, how? #Sabres
Tom Fitzgerald has had his job for 23 days and has made more trades in 48 hours than Jason Botterill has in 8 months
This is all a cause of Botterill’s inaction months ago and his now repeated instances of waiting until the breaking point to make moves.
Clear the logjam in September, waive bogosian and you don’t have to frantically shop Scandella to acquire a forward (who has been bad)
Post a picture that displays how you feel about the current status of the Buffalo Sabres under the management and direction of Jason Botterill and Kim Pegula.
Here, I’ll go first: https://t.co/s3qjIIYv2B
The Pegulas do not intend to create a director of hockey operations position above Sabres GM Jason Botterill, a source close to the situation confirmed.
I checked on Jason Botterill, he accidentally shut his car door on his coat and he's been trying to get out of the parking garage for the last 4 hours
Jason Botterill can get a first round pick for Colin Miller right now. Also, Miller equals first round pick value in a trade package for a top six forward like Vinny Trocheck
I have no real idea what's going on. The amount of Botterill support here tonight is utterly bizarre. Let's see if all you folks are back Monday afternoon around 4.
We don’t have enough information to evaluate Botterill? After nearly three years? What are you, his PR arm? Come on, man. https://t.co/l3FB2Esqqo
UPDATED JASON BOTTERILL TRADES STATS:
2-6 if you count the question marks as L's.
According to @DarrenDreger
Botterill is working hard to get some deals done but can’t get a partner right now.
The latest story from @LLysowski
in Ottawa: #Sabres will NOT be hiring a president of hockey ops. Agree or disagree (and many of you know I disagree), it appears that ends the should they/should they not chatter. https://t.co/nPOzFvEKX9
Ron we have three expendable defenseman that are much better than Scandella. Plus the return was a second and a fourth. Regardless of salary retained, botterill was fleeced and looks like a dummy
Translation: Botterill is really trying to make it look like he's doing something... But doesn't really intend to do anything
Went to @TimHortons
the other day and bought my kids a pack of Sabres trading cards. Toy surprise it was labeled Evan Rodriquez but is actually a picture of Henri Jokiharju. Is it wrong that I want to blame Botterill for this? #sabres https://t.co/AiJ6rOnYiE
Jason Botterill trades since coming here: https://t.co/ewSQ3xAyZY
Sabres twitter: “our GM does nothing, he needs to trade and take risks at least” Botterill:*makes trades and takes risks which don’t pan out* Sabres twitter: “our gm sucks, hes so horrible” let’s make up our minds
Botts: so we will give you ristolainen and a 2nd.
Tallon: you’re busting my chaps, bub. You’ll take huberdeau and you’re gonna like it.
Botts: we need you to throw in a fourth round pick as well
Dreger: Jason Botterill is trying, but the trades aren’t there!
In fairness to Botterill, the Sabres would be "right in the playoff race" too if they were in the West
