After losing Daniel Briere and Chris Drury for nothing as UFAs, the Buffalo Sabres decided to get something once it was decided they could not sign defenseman Brian Campbell. Yet another possible Ranger target is eliminated as the Sabres send Campbell to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for forward Steve Bernier and a first round draft pick.

It seems that teams are looking to make big splashes when it comes to the big name tickets at the deadline. One has to wonder if Glen Sather stays pat as opposed to giving up the farm for a rental. Given what San Jose gave up for a Campbell rental, it is a good no-deal for Slats. Sather might have to be content with picking up a spare part as we get closer to the deadline.
