2024 NHL Trade Deadline Open Thread

The 2023-24 NHL Trade Deadline is on Friday, March 8th and all deals must be completed before 3 p.m. ET.

The Buffalo Sabres were in an interesting position going into the last fortnight where they were unlikely to make the playoffs (for the 13th consecutive season) and so were not expected to be big buyers, but at the same time they have a young squad on the verge of breaking out so no one was anticipating General Manager Kevyn Adams selling the farm either.

The Sabres have a couple of veterans that will likely be on the move in Kyle Okposo and Erik Johnson, with Zemgus Girgensons’ name coming up often too. However, the key piece was Casey Mittelstadt who was due a new contract at the end of the season. Adams ended up pulling the trigger on the forward who is leading Buffalo in scoring this season, moving him on Wednesday to the Colorado Avalanche in a straight swap for young Stanley Cup-winning defenseman Bowen Byram to compile what is now looking a formidable defensive corps for the Sabres.

Use this thread for all trade-related conversations, and we’ll keep the tracker below up to date as we get up to the deadline on Friday afternoon.

UPDATE: Melissa has a great recap up on all the Sabres activity during what has been a pretty interesting trade deadline.
