7. Sabres receive Miroslav Satan from Oilers for Craig Millar and Barrie Moore
Miroslav Satan’s first two years in the NHL did not result in particularly prolific seasons for the Oilers, thus then-Oilers GM Glen Sather probably saw him as expendable, and traded the Slovak right winger to Buffalo for Craig Millar and Barrie Moore on deadline day in 1997. The deal ended up having more repercussions for the Oilers than they’d initially thought: Satan would enjoy eight fruitful seasons with the Sabres, peaking with a 75-point season in 2002-03, and a 37-goal season the year before. Millar and Moore would play 40 games between them for the Oilers. Millar retired in 2002, while Moore plays his club hockey in England.
