Deadline Day – Deal 10: Raffi Torres to Buffalo

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — Joe Yerdon @ 2:29 PM

Trade:

Buffalo gets: forward Raffi Torres

Columbus gets: defenseman Nathan Paetsch and a 2nd Round pick

Analysis:

Buffalo adds a sandpapery forward with a little scoring touch and a high energy guy in Torres. The guys on TSN love Torres but he’s a guy whose effect will be better felt come playoff time.  As for Nathan Paetsch, he fell out of favor with Lindy Ruff and he’s a middling defenseman that will come off the bench. The key here for Columbus was the draft pick even though the Blue Jackets could use all the blue line help they can get.  Sabres fans will go nuts for Torres’ style come playoff time.
