Report: Sabres trade Jhonas Enroth to Dallas for Anders Lindback and 3rd round pick

Despite making one of the biggest trades in years earlier today, Buffalo Sabres GM Tim Murray isn’t done yet.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie first reported that Murray has traded goaltender Jhonas Enroth to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Stars backup Anders Lindback and a conditional 3rd round pick. The conditions of the pick are not yet known.

Enroth had done fine work as the Sabres de-facto starter, and now gets a chance to play for Lindy Ruff and in a playoff race, as Dallas sits just three points out of eighth place in the Western Conference.

With this deal, Murray has sent a clear message to the league, that nobody tanks harder than Buffalo. Their remaining combination of Neuvirth and Lindback should ensure the Sabres lose just about every game the rest of the way, and is yet another instance of Murray getting rid of a player he didn’t believe was a part of the future.

Best wishes go out to Enroth, and to Sabres fans who have to watch this team for the rest of the year. Give us your thoughts on the Enroth trade in the comments.
