Buffalo Sabres Rumors: Insider Names 7 Trade Candidates

In a recent for The Athletic, Matthew Fairburn wrote that Henri Jokiharju, Victor Olofsson, Ilya Lyubushkin, Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, Eric Comrie, Riley Stillman, and Jacob Bryson could be trade candidates this upcoming season.

The Sabres are gearing up for an important season, as they are aiming to finally break their 12-year playoff drought. However, at the same time, they should be looking to make improvements on their roster, so it would make sense to see any of these seven players go if it results in bettering their team. 

Out of this list, Olofsson, Jokiharju, and Luukkonen are the most notable names. Olofsson has been in the rumor mill all summer, and he should get attention from clubs due to his scoring ability. Meanwhile, Jokiharju is a young right-shot defenseman who has the potential improve. Meanwhile, UPL was once the Sabres' top goalie prospect but has had trouble adjusting to the NHL level. 

We will need to wait and see if the Sabres end up moving any of these seven players during the season.
