Wait, pieces the Buffalo Sabres should want to acquire at the deadline?

Yes, despite the Sabres' current position in 30th in the NHL, there is a real possibility they not only will be adding players at the deadline but players who will play a key role for them next season and beyond.

That notion went to die last week when Sabres general manager swung one of the biggest trades in recent memory with Kevin Cheveldayoff, the general manager of the Winnipeg Jets.
