Buffalo Sabres Make Surprising Roster Move

The Buffalo Sabres have announced quite the roster move as their coaching staff has decided to make Jeff Skinner a healthy scratch on Monday against the New York Islanders.

The 28-year-old Skinner is on one of the worst contracts in the league as he's making $9 million per season until 2026-27 and has not been producing so far this season in Buffalo. Skinner's recorded no goals and one assist in 14 games and it's obvious the team has had enough.

After a 40-goal campaign in 2018-19 the Sabres decided to sign Skinner to a 8-year deal worth $72 million and ever since it's been a struggle. This however, is certainly the lowest of lows.
