The Buffalo Sabres will be looking to trade most of their UFA’s by the 2021 NHL trade deadline. One name that keeps popping up is Eric Staal.
LeBrun went on to say, Staal is living alone in Buffalo, his family is not with him, so what’s the difference [from] one hotel to another? He might as well go try and win somewhere else.
LeBrun is reporting that the Edmonton Oilers are interested in trading for a 3rd line center and have interest in Staal. A trade with the Oilers would have to be dollar-in dollar-out, as they’re right at the salary cap.
