The Buffalo Sabres are getting ready for multiple changes this offseason, particularly in their bottom six lineup and they could target Brandon Tanev.

With their key players like Eric Robinson, Zemgus Girgensons, and Victor Olofsson hitting free agency, the Sabres have an opportunity to bolster their roster.

One of the player on their radar is Brandon Tanev from the Seattle Kraken. At 32 years old, Tanev is entering the final year of his contract, debuting speculation about his availability for trade. For the Sabres, acquiring Tanev could address their need for experienced and physical players in the bottom six.

Known for his defensive reliability, speed, and aggressive style of play, Tanev would valuable for the Buffalo Sabres lineup, particularly on the penalty kill. Despite a slightly less offensive performance last season with seven goals and 16 points, Tanev's track record suggests he's capable of more. In the 2022-23 season, he tallied 16 goals and 35 points in 82 games, showcasing his potential as a bounce-back candidate.

If the Kraken decide to shop Tanev, the Sabres would be wise to explore the opportunity to add his skill set to their roster, providing a boost to their bottom six and penalty killing units.
