Jeff Skinner during his time in Buffalo has been a well liked player but his results have been controversial. On the offensive end of the ice he is a goal scoring winger that is prone to occasional slumps. Defensively he is a low effort player that barely impacts the game positively in his own zone.

With GM Kevyn Adams hiring Lindy Ruff who tends to run a more defensive system than what Buffalo had, Jeff Skinner might not fit the new mold. If the Sabres do buy out Jeff Skinner they create over 7 million dollars in salary cap space for this offseason but will be paying back for it, particularly in 2026-27.
As this situation continues to develop we will bring you the latest details on Jeff Skinner's future in Buffalo and beyond.
