NHL Commerce: The Buffalo Sabres Purchase Malcolm Subban from the Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks have traded goaltender Malcolm Subban to the Buffalo Sabres for future concerns.

John Vogl: “Malcolm Subban is now the highest-paid goalie within the Sabres’ group with an $850,000 cap hit and $950,000 wage. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen has a cap hit of $788,733, Craig Anderson and Aaron Dell are at $750,000 and Dustin Tokarski has a cap hit of $725,000 with a wage of $750,000.”

John Vogl: “Malcolm Subban is with Chicago’s AHL staff. He’s 2-2-1 with an .893 save proportion. The 27-year-old has performed 82 NHL video games, going 36-31-8 with an .899 save proportion.”

Mark Lazerus: “Is smart. Sabres wanted goaltending (Dell has been … tough) and the Blackhawks have had three goalies splitting time in Rockford (Subban, Delia, Söderblom), which isn’t good for anybody.”

Tracey Myers: “Good for Subban for getting one other alternative elsewhere. Undoubtedly deserved, IMO.”

John Vogl: “Malcolm Subban would probably be an improve over Aaron Dell, however as a pending UFA, he wouldn’t be that bridge to the prospects that we not too long ago mentioned.”

John Vogl: “The most important factor this does: It permits the Sabres to maintain Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen in Rochester. The one goalies on NHL offers had been Anderson, Tokarski, Dell and UPL. With Anderson harm and Dell not enjoying properly, Subban will add one other NHL goalie”
