Why Buffalo Sabres should (and shouldn’t) keep Henri Jokiharju in 2023

The Buffalo Sabres have a logjam at the blue line, with four players vying for the sixth, seventh, and potentially eighth spot in the rotation.

The Buffalo Sabres can’t keep every defenseman on their roster. And there are four of them vying for potentially the final three spots should the Blue and Gold roll with 13 forwards and eight defensemen. For the purposes of this four-part series, which explains why the Sabres should (and shouldn’t) hang onto their bottom four blueliners, I’m making the case for why each should stay, and why Buffalo should either trade or place them on waivers.
