News

Gorges was not among the players protected by the Sabres for the expansion draft.

Impact

Veteran teammate Zach Bogosian was also left unprotected, which may be a signal that new general manager Jason Botterill is looking to revamp a defense that ranked among the league's worst this past season. Gorges was eligible for the expansion draft because he has a modified no-trade clause rather than a no-movement clause, and has one year left on his contract worth $3.9 million. In three seasons with Buffalo, Gorges has appeared in 189 games, but like Bogosian hasn't been able to stay healthy and has seen his role slowly diminish. Bogosian may be the more enticing pick for Vegas because of his younger age and versatility, but Gorges' contract is much easier to stomach. If Gorges returns to Buffalo, he'll likely stay in a supporting role to Rasmus Ristolainen, Jake McCabe and Nathan Beaulieu, while remaining a staple on the penalty kill. If Gorges isn't selected by Vegas, he could still be dealt in a separate deal.
