The Sabres make a shocking move in acquiring Dominic Moore from the Toronto Maple Leafs. In return they sent a 2nd round pick that they received from the Carolina Hurricanes. This pick was flipped as part of a four way trade with the Hurricanes/Kings/Oilers that sees Ales Kotalik go to the Oilers.
Moore is a rental center for the Sabres. He can play well but is going to want a nice payday come free agent season. In terms of the trade itself, it makes sense for the Sabres to flip Kotalik for Moore, who has a lesser cap hit and can fulfill the same role.
Whether the Sabres have won in this trade is yet to be seen.
