The Buffalo Sabres' Jason Botterill has been among the busiest National Hockey League general managers this offseason.
In a matter of two months, Botterill has hired coach Ralph Krueger, signed leading goal scorer Jeff Skinner, drafted center Dylan Cozens seventh overall, acquired defenseman Colin Miller, signed left winger Marcus Johansson and traded winger Alexander Nylander to Chicago for defenseman Henri Jokiharju.
The last move indicated the Sabres aren't finished, and their next transaction could be significant. They have a surplus of right-shot defensemen and are likely in the market for a second-line center.
