Sabres Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Erik Johnson

The Buffalo Sabres have had an underwhelming start to the season and could be sellers at the deadline if they do not pick things up. Because of this, one player to watch in trade talks over the next few months is veteran defenseman Erik Johnson. Let's go over two potential landing spots for him now.

Colorado Avalanche: The Avalanche could consider a reunion with Johnson this season. Their right side could use a boost, and Johnson was a big part of their lineup for several seasons. With that, he would once again give them more leadership, which is certainly a nice perk. 

New Jersey Devils: The New Jersey Devils have been in the market for a right-shot defenseman and could use a player like Johnson on their bottom pairing. He would also have the potential to work on their penalty kill, so there could be a match there.

We will now need to wait and see if Johnson gets traded to one of these two teams from here.
