  Matt Patricia could be fired if Lions lose to Jaguars Matt Patricia has not produced positive results with the Detroit Lions since they hired him as head coach back in 2018, and Sunday could reportedly be his last day on the job if things don’t go well. © Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Matt Patricia could be out of a job soon. Several Lions sources told Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports that they believe Patricia could be fired if Detroit loses to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. The Lions are 1-3 coming off their bye and have lost games in disappointing fashion this season, and Patricia and his staff were put on notice entering the year.

The Buffalo Sabres signed Victor Olofsson to a two - year deal worth $ 6 . 1 million, avoiding arbitration with the forward. Olofsson was set to become a restricted free agent, and his arbitration hearing was scheduled for Nov. 4. As a rookie last season, the 25-year-old Swede had 42 points (20 goals, 22

The Buffalo Sabres re- signed sniper Victor Olofsson to a two - year contract carrying an annual cap hit of .05 million, the team announced Thursday. Olofsson finished seventh in Calder Trophy voting as the league's top rookie last season after tallying 20 goals and 22 assists in 54 games.

One of the most intriguing arbitration cases scheduled for the next few days was Victor Olofsson, the Buffalo Sabres sniper who has scored 22 goals and 46 points in his 60-game NHL career. Despite being a relative newcomer to the NHL, Olofsson is already 25 and is a lot closer to unrestricted free agency than some of his rookie counterparts. His hearing was scheduled for Nov. 4, but it will not be necessary. The Sabres signed Olofsson to a two-year contract that carries an average annual value of $3.05M. Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports that it will pay Olofsson $2.85M in 2020-21 and $3.25M in 2021-22.

Not only does a two-year deal limit the cap hit and provides a very real chance for the Sabres to receive excess value out of the young forward, but it also leaves him a restricted free agent in 2022. While he has already turned 25, Olofsson’s birthday comes after the normal start of free agency meaning this deal does not walk him right to the unrestricted free agent market. At its expiry, the two sides will have a chance to work out a long-term deal should his outstanding goal production continue.

The Buffalo Sabres signed Victor Olofsson to a two - year deal worth $ 6 . 1 million, avoiding arbitration with the forward. Olofsson was set to become a restricted free agent, and his He is the third Sabres player to sign in lieu of arbitration, joining forward Sam Reinhart and goaltender Linus Ullmark.

Even though he has real 30-goal potential, there are some things to consider about Olofsson’s production so far. Only nine of his 22 career goals have come at even-strength, and this year he scored on 15.7% of his shots. If used properly he can be a game-changing presence on the power play, but he has still yet to prove that he can jump over the boards and produce at even-strength on a regular basis.

Still, there’s a lot to like about a deal that pays him about half of what the Sabres owe Kyle Okposo in each of the next three seasons or what they could have found on the free agent market. Olofsson will join a top six that suddenly looks quite impressive, after the offseason additions of Taylor Hall and Eric Staal. The team also has top prospect Dylan Cozens coming and still has Jack Eichel in the middle of it all, providing all-world production.

With a surplus on defense, Sabres could make a trade

  With a surplus on defense, Sabres could make a trade A trade would open up a spot for 23-year-old William Borgen, a highly touted St. Cloud State player who has played just four NHL games so far after two years in the AHL. Newly drafted Ottawa forward Tim Stuetzle might have trouble joining the Senators for the upcoming 2020-21 due to his contract with Alder Manheim in Germany. The European rule is that a player with a valid cannot sign an NHL contract after Aug. 15. While that rule doesn’t make as much sense considering the draft was on Oct. 6, the rule still applies, according to deputy commissioner Bill Daly.

The Sabres have signed forward Victor Olofsson to a two - year , entry-level contract. Olofsson (5'11", 173 lbs., 7/18/1995) recently completed his second season with Frölunda HC of the Swedish Hockey League, where he posted a career-best 43 points, including a league-high 27 goals in 50

F Olofsson returns to Sabres on two - year deal By Reuters - Oct 29, 2020. The Buffalo Sabres signed Victor Olofsson to a two - year deal worth $ 6 . 1 million, avoiding arbitration with the forward. Olofsson was set to become a restricted free agent, and his

At the end of this deal, Olofsson will be arbitration-eligible once again and could potentially get himself to unrestricted free agency by taking that one-year award. He’ll also be owed a hefty qualifying offer of $3.66M, something he could fall back on if his production dips but the Sabres still want to keep him around.

Because this was the team's final arbitration case, Buffalo will now receive a short buyout window starting two days from now.

Why Taylor Hall will be 2021's can't-miss free agent

  Why Taylor Hall will be 2021's can't-miss free agent Taylor Hall is certainly not complaining about making $8M this season. This was not the free agent frenzy and massive long-term deal expected for the Hart Trophy winner. However, one year could make all the difference. Hall, 28, is one of the few players in the NHL who should not be content with an $8M valuation. The 2010 first overall pick, Hall has scored at a rate of .9 points per game over his ten-year career, including four seasons at over a point per game and no seasons below .74 since his rookie year.
