Sabres should not trade Ryan OReilly

Look, when you nab the top pick of the draft, chances are youa€™re in a rebuild.

Whether they wanted to be in this spot again or not, the Buffalo Sabres certainly played like a rebuilding franchise once again in 2017-18, putting themselves in a position to win the Rasmus Dahlin lottery. The Swedish defenseman stands as quite the balm after this teama€™s been humiliated by multiple stunted attempts at growth.

Ryan O'Reilly clearly chafes at these stumbles.

He memorably opened up after this rough season, stating that he believed that the Sabres eventually adopted a a€œlosing mindset.a€

a€œIta€™s crept into all of our games. Yeah, ita€™s disappointing. Ita€™s sad,a€ Oa€™Reilly said in early April. a€œI feel throughout the year Ia€™ve lost the love of the game multiple times, and just need to get back to it because ita€™s eating myself up, and eats the other guys up, too.a€

When you utter a comment like that, ita€™s only natural to find your name in trade rumors. Thata€™s especially true for an expensive player like Oa€™Reilly, who carries a $7.5 million cap hit through 2022-23.
