Sabres’ Ott keeps eye on trade window

Steve Ott is the Sabres’ competitive face and dressing-room voice, the guy who best represents what Buffalo wants to be as an organization.

Matt Moulson was the King who got away. Once the Penguins, who drafted Moulson in the ninth round in 2003, declined to sign the Cornell standout, Los Angeles made him an offer. Moulson spent his seasons in the organization mostly in Manchester, the Kings’ AHL team. Instead of re-signing Moulson, the Kings let him walk.

Their primary focus needs to be on Steve Ott.

Halak could have made amends in the shootout, but he didn’t. A big point got away from the Blues in startling fashion.

Steve Ott generating trade buzz

There has been so much focus on Matt Moulson that you forget the Buffalo Sabres have a long list of pending UFAs, and another forward generating lots of interest is Steve Ott.
