Wild trade Eric Staal for Marcus Johansson

What the acquisition of Eric Staal means for the Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres have acquired center Eric Staal in a deal with the Minnesota Wild. "I'm looking at the team that we're trying to build and then making sure we're putting ourselves in a position to also adjust and be flexible".

Staal remains productive after finishing with 19 goals in 66 games, just missing out on his 12th career 20-goal season, which was shortened due to the coronavirus in March.

Adams is very familiar with Staal, as they were teammates in Carolina and members of the Hurricanes team that won 2006 Stanley Cup.

He has one season remaining on a two-year, $6.5 million contract ($3.25 million average annual value) he signed with Minnesota on February 25, 2019.

Kevyn Adams pulled off his first trade and sent away Marcus Johansson for Staal.

Staal, the second overall pick in 2003, has compiled 436 goals and 1,021 points in 1,240 career games.

They say such a reneging on an worldwide agreement would damage the nation's trustworthy reputation. Johnson added that the new legislation was aimed at protecting the UK's integrity.

The former first-round pick in 2009 (No. 24 overall) by Washington has played in 501 career National Hockey League games, recording 102 goals and 290 points. So those are all the things as I watched him closely recently and a lot of his games, I saw a lot of the same things.

"He's a tremendous, high character person", Adams added.

The Buffalo Sabres haven't really been in the news much since the season was halted back in March because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but on Wednesday, the Sabres made headlines once again.

Johansson, 29 (10/6/90), recorded 30 points (9-21=30) and averaged 17:07 in TOI/game in 60 contests with the Buffalo Sabres this season serving as an alternate captain. "So, yeah, the underrated part of an Eric Staal in your dressing room and if Dylan Cozens is on our roster is just the ability to be with him every day and to learn from him, not just on the ice but off the ice as well".

"I think opportunity", Guerin said when asked why Johansson might succeed as a center in Minnesota.
