Stop me if you have heard this one before; the Buffalo Sabres are interested in Jimmy Vesey.

9. There’s a ton of trade talk. Among the most aggressive teams: Buffalo, Calgary, Chicago, Minnesota, Nashville, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Vancouver, Vegas, Washington and Winnipeg. Depending on how the draft goes, we could see some frenetic attempts to move up and down. The Sabres have talked to the Rangers about Jimmy Vesey.
This isn’t shocking, as the Sabres traded a third round pick in 2016 to the Nashville Predators in an attempt to sign the soon-to-be college free agent after it was clear he wasn’t going to sign with the Preds.
