Picture of Victor Olofsson. Will the Buffalo Sabres trade the forward?
The latest NHL trade rumors for the Buffalo Sabres feature the team looking to trade forward Victor Olofsson.

During the offseason, the Buffalo Sabres attempted to trade winger Victor Olofsson, but they could not find a suitable partner.

Olofsson, 28, who will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason, is expected to be traded by the NHL trade deadline as the team has no interest in contract extension talks.

When will the Buffalo Sabres trade Victor Olofsson?

With forward Jack Quinn recovering from an Achilles injury, the Buffalo Sabres are expected to keep Victor Olofsson in the lineup.

It is speculated online that Sabres management will retain up to half of his salary cap hit to facilitate a trade once Quinn is activated from injured reserve. Olofsson currently has a Sabres salary cap hit of $4.75 million.

What are Buffalo Sabres fans saying about a potential Victor Olofsson trade?

Olofsson is begging to be traded or he will be riding the pine quite often this season.

Olofsson will destroy the AHL this season. Book it!

The dude put up 28 goals in 75 games last season. I am quite sure there will be a market for him once the season begins and injuries happen.
