  • Sabres' Vladimir Sobotka: Won't face buyout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/19) Sobotka's (upper body) contract won't be bought out according to general manager Jason Botterill, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Sobotka had a disappointing first season in Buffalo, as injuries limited him to just 69 appearances. When healthy, the 31-year-old failed to produce, as he tallied a meager five goals and eight helpers. Instead, the Sabres will hope the natural center can step up his game and earn the $3.5 million he is set to make this season.

    Sabres' Vladimir Sobotka: Season over

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/19) Sobotka (upper body) isn't in Detroit for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Red Wings, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Sobotka's 2018-19 campaign mercifully comes to a close with the Czech pivot collecting five goals and eight assists to go with a minus-20 rating through 69 games. Formerly with the Blues, Sobotka didn't exactly pan out well in his new digs, and it'll be interesting to see whether his current team has any interest in packing him in a potential trade during the free-agency signing period. He'll be an unrestricted free agent after the 2019-20 campaign.

    Sabres' Vladimir Sobotka: Remains shelved

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/19) Sobotka (upper body) will not be in the lineup versus Nashville on Tuesday, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Sobotka struggled this season, as he managed just five goals and eight helpers in 69 games. The natural center even found himself relegated to a healthy scratch periodically due to his lack of offensive contributions. It wouldn't come as a shock to see the Sabres try to move the 31-year-old in the offseason given his $3.5 million cap hit. Perhaps a change in scenery can help him rediscover his scoring touch.

    Sabres' Vladimir Sobotka: Not in lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/19) Sobotka (upper body) will not appear in Sunday's tilt against Columbus.

    The veteran forward has just 13 points and a minus-20 rating across 69 games in what's been a horrible 2018-19 season following his acquisition from the Blues. Sobotka's fantasy value is virtually nonexistent down the stretch.

    Sabres' Vladimir Sobotka: Collects assist in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/19) Sobotka registered an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    It was Sobotka's second game back after being a healthy scratch, so finding the scoresheet will bode well for him keeping his spot in the lineup. The helper is just his eighth of the season, though, and gives him 13 points on the year. His value is limited to deeper leagues.
