Buffalo Addresses Needs At Deadline

Buffalo was one of the few teams to jump out at the trade deadline and address the needs that the team had, according to Rafal Ladysz at Die By The Blade.

The Buffalo Sabres had two fundamental necessities they had to add heading into this year's trade deadline: an offensive defenseman or a gritty forward. Darcy Regier kept the deals short and sweet by acquiring Raffi Torres from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Nathan Paetsch and a 2010 second-round pick.

Then, he sent Clarke MacArthur to Atlanta with a third and fourth-round pick arriving for him. Although the puck-moving defender didn't arrive, Regier made two fantastic moves that are sure to assist Buffalo for the stretch drive heading into the postseason and the future.
